National Black Dog Day

Twitter informs me that it’s National Black Dog Day!

So, here’s a handy list of ways to celebrate:

  • If you have a black dog, give them extra scritches and extra treats. (If your black dog is a metaphor for mental illness rather than an actual dog, taking good care of yourself counts as a treat.)
  • If you don’t have a black dog, visit an animal shelter and pet one.
  • If your life is incomplete without a dog, consider adopting a black one.  They get overlooked at shelters and are more likely to be euthanized.
  • If your life (and bed) have all the dogs they can accommodate, you can still look at all the adorable black dog pictures on the hashtag.
