National Dog Day, Golden Retriever Puppies


Note: We call all dogs "puppies," regardless of age. It's much more fun to say "look at the puppy!" when we see them on the street than just "look at the dog." We wanted to clear that up lest you think we are being ageist and only featuring young pooches in this celebration of National Dog Day. Never.

Do we really need an intro to this story? OK, how about this one:


Boom. Nailed it.

No, but seriously look at all these precious puppies celebrating National Dog Day like a bone-afide (see what we did there?) boss:
