926 Dog Lovers’ Day
World Dog Alliance founded “926 Dog Lovers’ Day” Celebrations was held on 26th September in major cities worldwide including Washington D.C., Milan, London and Hong Kong in 2015.
Our slogan for 926 Dog Lovers’ Day finds its roots in the Cantonese language. In Cantonese, the phonetic pronunciation of 9.2.6. is similar to “gau yi luk” which means “A dog is easily happy and can easily make people happy”. Our celebration is intended to remind us that dogs are our best friends. More importantly, no one should treat our best friends with the brutality that is a fact of life in the Asian dog meat trade.
