If you are a dog lover, this story is a real treat. Social media users were left gushing on Twitter as pet owners shared stories and pictures of their “canine kids” on #InternationalDogDay, August 26.
Big or small, fluffy or skinny, happy or grumpy, dogs all around the world got their few minutes of fame on the social media platform, all thanks to their eager dog-parents.
People who did not have dogs, took this opportunity to celebrate with those who did, and left adorable comments and likes on posts.
In short, it was a ‘pawsome’ day!
Twitter user @kylietaylor shared a video of her dog, with the caption: “In honour of #InternationalDogDay my sweet baby girl is in doggy land now but her goofiness and personality is to be celebrated forever. Even though everyday was a struggle for her, she fought the fight with a wonky little smile always on her face. Rip Jas, love you forever.”
@gmontross tweeted a picture of his cloud-like canine, with the caption: “Its #InternationalDogDay and the first day of school in DC, so here’s a photo of Roger Federfluff smiling like a second grader on school picture day.”
Popular Twitter and Instagram account We Rate Dogs (twitter: @dog_rates) asked pet owners to send them pictures of their dogs, on Twitter. The post had more than 7,000 comments and 8,000 likes.
Twitter user Beth shared a before-after picture of her deaf rescue dog with the caption: Our deaf rescue pup, Cheese! Left is [him] yesterday. The right is the day we rescued him.

And that’s exactly what we did today too.
