Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours! Are you ready for the first big holiday dinner of the season...and one of my favorite Thanksgiving Day traditions - the National Dog Show. All of my friends and family love watching football on Thanksgiving, but I always tune in to NBC on Thanksgiving Day and this year I will be watching the 16th annual National Dog Show! I look forward to this all year - and so do my doggies!
With more than 2,000 dogs representing more than 175 breeds, the National Dog Show will also feature the return of the #D0gThanking campaign by Purina, where we encourage pet owners to share stories and photos that will trigger a donation to a charity!
Purina is dedicated to building and enhancing the relationship between pets and people so they can live longer and healthier lives together. Purina’s #DogThanking imitative was created for the National Dog Show and the Thanksgiving holiday to encourage pet owners to celebrate and show their appreciation for their pets.
As a dog and cat mom, I can tell you why I love my dogs and appreciate them so much...I am so thankful for these sweet little furballs who fill my life with unconditional love...and cuddles! Even the new addition to the family, Kylie, knows how to cuddle!
For each unique public post on social media that includes the #DogThanking hashtag, tags @Purina and includes a story about what makes your pet the very best, Purina will donate $1 - for a total of up to $50,000 - to GreaterGood.org to help support hurricane victims and their pets in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.
As a pet owner, I can tell you that this warms my heart even more this year because these poor pets, they've been through enough! And people don't always have the means to help financially in the aftermath of a hurricane, or any other natural disaster, for that matter.
