How to Celebrate National Dog Day
If you have a dog, pet your dog.
If you don’t have a dog, go to the nearest dog park. Walk casually along its perimeter as though you’re out for a stroll and some fresh air. Keep the dogs within your periphery at all times.
Continue your walk until you make eye contact with a dog. Stop. Turn toward the dog. Crouch down and extend your hand in its direction.
The dog will not approach. Instead, it will break eye contact and resume playing with the other dogs.
Pretend you stopped to tie your shoe. Stand. Walk home.
Spend the evening reliving that moment with the dog, and – you know what – feel pretty terrific about yourself. Today a doggie looked at you. Dogs are awesome and so are you.
