National Puppy Day, which began in 2006 to encourage animal lovers to adopt dogs (and to honor all of our canine companions, of course), falls on Monday, March 23. To celebrate the occasion, let your furry little (or grown) pal wag along with you to dog-friendly spots, treat them to a spa day or em-bark on one of numerous other options for having a doggone good time.  Track 7 Brewing Co.
