Here is what is happening in Northwest Arkansas on Wednesday, August 26 sponsored by Snapple Lemonade.
They say that anything is “paw-sible” when you have a dog . Here’s to man’s best friend: Today is National Dog Day. If this week has been “ruff” for you, a little celebration might help. The day encourages people to own dogs of all breeds, pure and mixed. I’m not “hound-ing” you, but you can celebrate by walking your dog, or if you don’t own one, asking to walk your neighbor or your friend’s dog, or volunteering at a local dog shelter. For bigger steps, you could adopt a dog or begin fostering.
