National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse.
Margie: Edna, we should make a donation to our shelter today. I wouldn't like being homeless and abused. How would you feel if we'd been abused and nobody wanted to adopt us? Poor dogs can't take care of themselves like people can. It's a crying shame how people can't see that poor animals need to be loved too.
Edna: Margie, I know we can't afford to give much, but I would willingly give up your special tea budget to help these poor animals. Dogs are such special creatures, and they deserve our love, and all the help we can give.
Margie: Edna, you can give up your tea budget if you like but I need that tea for my nerves. I'll donate a little out of my discretionary fund. I've been very careful with that money as you well know.
Dogs are special, Edna, and they love people unconditionally.
