The world dog day Uk  Foundation promotes all dog breeds and varieties and discourages buying from unethical breeders and puppy mills in the backyard; instead, it promotes reputable breeders or adopts from rescue homes.

Dog Day has been endorsed by such high-profile people as former US President George W Bush whose own dog, Barney the Scottish Terrier, has his own website and even featured in a series of brief movies. So celebrate dogs today and their diverse skills, both by taking the time in your own lives to treat the animals and by helping needy dogs.

It turns out that in respect of our shaggy friends, we act unfairly. World Cat Day exists, and dogs have no such holiday. It is clear that people in different countries tried to change this state of affairs, and established their own dog day, if not international, then at home. Let’s take a look at how our smaller four-legged brothers are treated in other regions of the world.

When celebrating their world dog day, people decided differently, sometimes this was due to local beliefs, and sometimes a special occasion caused less attention to our brothers. In distant Nepal, for example, he was tied to the Tihar religious festival. On the second day of this large annual festival (it is called Kukur Puja), these animals are dressed up and solemnly invited to the ceremony where they receive a blessing. Indeed, according to legend, it was these beauties who accompanied the son of the god Dharma to heaven. The local population is sure that the dogs are entrusted with the protection of the gates of heaven and the underworld.

 

But the Japanese were shocked by the fate of the legendary dog ​​Hachiko. For nine years he did not leave the platform of Shibuya station, faithfully awaiting his master, Hidedesaburo Ueno, who was taken from there to the hospital with a heart attack. Such astonishing loyalty caused a wave of sympathy from the people, and even after Hachiko’s death was not forgotten. The day of memory of the faithful pet was set for the date of January 11, and later in many other countries this good initiative was picked up.

In America, the day of the dogs is celebrated on August 26, and in the UK it was decided to coincide with the weekend – the last Sunday of the month of April. It is worth mentioning here on April 27, after all, World Day of Guide Dogs, which is celebrated by people in Russia and other 60 countries of the world, was recognized as an official holiday several years ago.

A well-educated and friendly dog ​​turns into an indispensable assistant for thousands of people. In any weather, they accompany their master, of course, their work guides deserve respect and honor from people.
