Did you know it's National Puppy Day?




Adorable dogs and puppies flooded social media Saturday as people shared posts tagged #NationalPuppyDay, including businesses and even government organizations.

National Puppy Day was created in 2006 to promote pet adoption, raise awareness about puppy mills and "to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives," according to the National Puppy Day website.

This year, sports franchises, charities and beer brands joined in.

Around noon Saturday, National Puppy Day was trending on Twitter with more than 14,000 tweets. And in total, Instagram reports more than 4 million #NationalPuppyDay posts.

I could post a puppy thread here every day.

By the way, we had a dog named Sarge when I was a kid. My dad was air force.

5. I'm Air Force, too.

If I may ask, where and when did your dad serve? We might have crossed paths.
