What is National Dog Biscuit Day?
National Dog Biscuit Day is an international day that is celebrated all around the world. Exactly where and when it originated is unknown. But, considering that dog biscuits were invented in England, perhaps the celebration was as well. Dog biscuits were invented in the early 1800s, and like many other inventions, originated from a happy accident. After a new recipe for normal biscuits turned out wrong, a baker gave the results to their dog instead of throwing them out. The dog loved them and years later, dog biscuits replaced dog bread as a favorite treat for man’s best friend.
