We don't know who's in charge of designating these things, but thanks to whomever came up with National Puppy Day! To celebrate, here are some compilations of puppies being puppies.
WARNING: CUTENESS OVERLOAD! Please resist the urge to smoosh them all and just put them in your pocket and kiss them and hug them and love them and call them George.
And if you're thinking if getting a puppy, ADOPT! The folks at Animal Planet tells you more at http://www.nationalpuppyday.com/.
