“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace.”
“National Dog Day serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for a child who is disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.”
Happy National Dog Day! We’re in favor of any day that recognizes and celebrates our steadfast canine companions — especially since so many of our favorite memories, trips and hikes wouldn’t have been complete without these adventure dogs. Here’s to our loyal friends on the trail and off, whether they’re Desert Dawgs or office dogs. Below are a few of our favorite photos from fans, Osprey Athletes and Osprey Packs employees of their adventures with their #OspreyDogs.
