and kind acts throughout the world.

photographic illusion of a half person, half dog through
positioning your four legged friend's smiling face in front of your
own, and sharing them through the Kennel Club's Facebook, Twitter
and Instagram pages alongside the following hashtags
#dogsmileselfie #worldsmileday and #kennelclub.
The Kennel Club Charitable Trust funds a wide variety of work
