International Dog Day is celebrated every year on August 26. It may be the most overused phrase, but that doesn’t stop it from being true, after all, dogs are man’s best friend. People all around the world mark the day to celebrate their furry friends, encourage adoption and draw attention to the plight of all canines around the world, irrespective of their breed.
The worldwide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic has also made it possible for many to actually spend time with their adorable canines, run around and play with them. Give them attention and return the warm, furry hugs they give you when they sense your anxiety or stress. Because your doggos need to know the special place they hold in your hearts.
As the world celebrates the day dedicated to their pooches, Bollywood celebrities have also decided to jump on the bandwagon. From taking their pooches on vacations to posting adorable pictures with them online, fans have often witnessed Bollywood stars expressing their love for their pets. On the special occasion, some of Btown’s beloved celebs could not help but take to their social media platforms with some ‘pawsitively’ adorable snaps showcasing the deep bond and love they have for their furry friends. These International Dog Day posts are sure to lift your mid-week blues and bring a smile to your face.
