Calling all big-hearted softies! It's international puppy day!
If you're a dog lover who's lucky enough to have a puppy, today is (yet another) day for you to celebrate and show unconditional love for your four-legged friend.
If, like me, you're not able to own a puppy yourself (*sniff*), today is a great day to sit back and indulge in the endless social media stream of adorable puppy photos.
Here's one of my very own sketches, 'Puppy Love', for you to enjoy.
If you're in Australia and you're thinking about buying a puppy, please consider adopting one from the RSPCA. For more information, please visit their website here.
