Take less than half a minute to watch this incredibly patient Border Collie...what's kitty doing eating from his big bowl, anyway?

#NationalDogDay Celebration!

                        Hey everybody! It's National Dog Day!

We think one of the most important things you can do to help celebrate this special day is to adopt a beautiful, loyal doggie from a shelter or rescue group. In the words of Colleen Paige, founder of National Dog Day, "Dogs are amazing, courageous, sensitive and sentient beings that deserve compassion and respect. Please consider bringing what was once considered "unwanted love", into your heart and home on National Dog Day!"

But there are tons of different ways to honor the dogs in your life, past and present, and our good friends from The Daily Pip have described some wonderful ways to both celebrate and help doggies in need.

Parental Unit and I think that one of the best ways to celebrate #NationalDogDay is to indulge your dog in, well, doing dog things...like going for an extra long walk or a hike through the woods (weather permitting—it's ghastly hot again, here), playing a rousing game of fetch or playing other fun games with their favorite human...and that's you!

Please let us know what special things you're doing today to celebrate dogs!

Watch HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle And Oprah!

Hey everybody—Wayne Pacelle chats with Oprah on "Super Soul Sunday!"

Since we're on the mailing list of the Humane Society of the United States , we received this notice the other day, letting us know that HSUS CEO, Wayne Pacelle, would be chatting with Oprah as part of today's "Super Soul Sunday".

We're big fans of both the HSUS and it's CEO, Mr. Pacelle, and we're also fans of Oprah—although we've never tuned in to her television station, OWN, ...until now. We've DVR'd this program and are heartily recommending it to all of our readers.

As you might remember, Parental Unit had the pleasure of talking with Mr. Pacelle during the book tour for his first best selling book, The Bond: Our Kinship With Animals, Our Call to Defend Them.
Now Mr. Pacelle has written a second book, The Humane Economy: How Innovators and  Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals which he discuses with Oprah during their hour-long conversation. The conversation airs today at 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., EST,  and we bet it will be repeated many times, so if you don't read this in time, please keep a lookout on OWN!

Let us know if you see it and what you think—we're excited to hear your opinions!
