GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- It's a special day honoring man's best friend. And it's happening in Grand Rapids this weekend.
Hundreds of dog lovers are expected to turn out for the inaugural "Day of the Dog" celebration Sunday. The event is a tradition in Nepal celebrating dogs' relationships with humans.
If you're not a dog owner, or you want to adopt another pet, there will be adoptable dogs at the event.
This inaugural celebration will be held at Stepping Stones Montessori at 1110 College Avenue NE. It runs from 2 to 4 p.m. There is no cost to attend, but if you go you're asked to bring toys or treats to donate to the shelter dogs.
