Friday, March 23 is National Puppy Day — a day dedicated to celebrating what happiness looks like.
Officially, the day is dedicated to informing the public about the horrors of puppy mills and encouraging adoption.
The day also comes with deals for puppy and dog owners at national pet chains like Petco and places like Starbucks and Target. Some are in-store deals and some are online.
