Prepare to get your cuteness on with National Puppy Day on March 23! This day was created in 2006 by animal advocate Colleen Paige as a way to celebrate the unconditional love and joy that puppies bring into our lives. It's also a great opportunity for people who don't have their own pup yet, or just need an extra dose of puppy love, to get out there and adopt one!
