We Need Puppies Right Now (20 photos)

At a time when so much of the world’s attention is focused on stories that can create anxiety, it might be helpful to take a breather, and maybe enjoy a few photos of adorable pups on National Puppy Day. The date, March 23, was first set aside in 2006 by the author Colleen Paige, and adopted by other groups and organizations since. The idea is to focus attention on puppies in need of adoption and the abuses found in puppy mills, but also to celebrate these furry little companions. In the spirit of the day, I am once more obligated to share some images of pups around the world.
