    ABOUT DOG MOM’S DAY

    The Dig has created a day to celebrate and thank the dog moms who dedicate their love and support every day to their dogs. It’s a different, special and visceral love that deserves its own day to be recognized and appreciated.  Every year, dog moms are reprimanded for celebrating their motherhood on Mother’s Day. Dog Mom’s Day will be a day truly dedicated to the dog moms, foster dog moms, and future dog moms. Dog Mom’s Day is a celebration of women and their dogs.
