National Dog Day salutes man's best friend


It's a big day for man's best friend.

Today is National Dog Day, a tradition that started back in 2004.  The day salutes our four-legged friends and also hopes to raise awareness on the importance of pet adoption.

"Isn't everyday a holiday for most dogs, but now we have one designated, obviously they should have the paid day off, I'm not sure what you would pay them in," says Dr. Rick Nelson a local veterinarian.

For most dogs a simple doggy treat would be payment enough.
