"Saturday, April 11 is National Pet Day, a holiday founded in 2005 by Celebrity Pet & Home Lifestyle Expert Colleen Paige to celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives and to create public awareness about the plight of many different kinds of animals awaiting a forever home in shelters and rescues all across the nation."
I don`t need an excuse to pamper my pooch, every day I shower her with love, attention and meals fit for a queen.
I was unaware that yesterday was National Pet Day, but nevertheless it was a typical special day for Mandy: I shared my steak with her, took her walking, and played with her in my backyard.
National Pet Day is a special day when pet owners can share with non-pet owners the happiness and joy our animals bring to our lives.
Next year I will be prepared for National Pet Day, I will load my Smartphone with dozens of pics of my beautiful dog and adorable cats that I can share with my friends and co-workers.
All pets - from farm animals to reptiles to birds to little fish are celebrated; I urge my readers to post images of their pets on social media. Whether it`s Rocky the raccoon, Polly the parrot, or Fido the pooch, let`s see those pics!
