National Dog Day 2018: Make this special day special. Do something fun for four-paws. No good ideas? You’re not thinking… like a dog yet…

Sunday, August 26, 2018…

Hip, Hip, Hoorah!
It’s National Dog Day!

Make this special day special. Do something fun for four-paws. No good ideas? You’re not thinking… like a dog yet.

Do Something Significant

Take Pooch to the beach for National Dog Day this Sunday (or join a parade, or visit the dog park, or dig a hole)… or shock the guy. Bring home a load of beach balls! (No sand. Even Mom is happy. I’ve got it all figured out.)

Break Bread Together

You and Pooch could enjoy a special meal together on National Dog Day, this Sunday, August 26th. (Be sure to mark your calendar!) Food is a vital component to any celebration — and sometimes, competitive races are too!

Howl at the Moon

You and Pooch could make National Dog Day 2018 (this Sunday, August 26) an opportunity to reaffirm your vows of commitment to each other. There’s nothing like the traditional pack-sing-song to do that — and, there will be a Full Moon!

I bet I got you thinking like a dog by now. So, what will you and your Pooch be doing this Sunday, August 26th, National Dog Day 2018? Let us know in the comments — it’ll help the human people who have difficulty with… well,… new tricks.

Have a happy, happy dog day on National Dog Day 2018. (This coming Sunday!)

Chester Chronicles the Canine News

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.


Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
