February 28th National Cupcake Day

Today is National Cupcake Day… in Canada. So why not celebrate our northern neighbor’s holiday!?! And I particularly like this one because it is used to help the SPCA and Humane Organizations in Canada. It helps our friends the animals we all love.

It always falls on the last Monday of February so the date does change but the intent does not. I have been wondering if dogs know how happy they generally make us. They certainly make us better people. Cats, horses, rabbits… whatever the animal we have as friends do make us better than we would be without them.

And better yet, we get to eat cupcakes to show our support for them. How sweet is that! And maybe we can even find an animal healthy cupcake for them to enjoy with us! Just make sure you don’t mix them up!

How to celebrate – Help out our pets today whether they are Canadian or in the United States. Make some pet friendly cupcakes. Visit Canada.

February 20th Love Your Pet Day

This should really be every day of the year, not just the 20th of February, but if you have to put a day out there to remind you then I guess this day is just as good as any other. For the most part, you picked your pet and they fell in love with you because you cared for them. They may not always act the way you would like them to, but still, they love you, you should love them back; they really ask for little more. I have the greatest dog ever and it’s all because someone gave her up because she played with and tore up their shoes. Their loss, I won.

How to celebrate – Love your pet. Take them to a park unless they are a bird or another leash-less animal. Give your pet a special treat, just for them.

January 31st National Train Your Dog Month

JANUARY Month National Train Your Dog Month

Dogs are our best friends, but they still need to be taught the rights and wrongs and what they are allowed to get away with by their owners. Normally, a dog that is trained is a happy dog since most dogs just want to please their masters. And you can train your dog to do a number of different things, some are tricks and some are considered work. Enjoy your dog and train them to be the best friend you’ve ever had.

How to celebrate – Teach your old dogs new tricks, Always use a reward system. Let your dog be a dog.

January 14th Dress Up Your Pet Day

If you find your pet hiding from you today it’s probably because they remember this day from last year. Yes, I know, they look cute and they probably like the extra attention, just not the results. Today was created by Colleen Paige, an animal expert. I’m not really sure why an animal expert would create a day like today but then, I guess they know better than I do. I know my pets love to get attention and love to spend time with me until I start to dress them up.

How to celebrate – Dress up your pet. Get your pictures quick, they won’t stand still for very long. Live and let live.

August 26th National Dog Day

If you are a dog lover this day comes every day! Dogs are truly man’s best friend. That’s not holding anything against cats or birds or any other pet you choose to keep, But dogs and man go together like soup and sandwich, cookies and milk, pb & j… well you get the picture. I’m not sure one can survive without the other. Take care of your dog, love your dog, spend time with your dog and they will reward you time and time again. Today was created in 2004 by Colleen Paige, Pet Lifestyle Expert. And yes, the picture for today is the same as the one for yesterday because … well … it just seems to fit!

How to celebrate – Love your dog. Give your dog some special treats today. Make friends with your best friend all over again today.

August 16th RSPCA Cupcake Day

Today is Cupcake Day… in Australia. So why not celebrate our friends Down Under!?! And I particularly like this one because it is used to help the RSPCA and Humane Organizations in Australia. It helps our friends the animals we all love.

I have been wondering if dogs know how happy they generally make us. They certainly make us better people. Cats, horses, rabbits… whatever the animal we have as friends do make us better than we would be without them.

And better yet, we get to eat cupcakes to show our support for them. How sweet is that! And maybe we can even find an animal healthy cupcake for them to enjoy with us! Just make sure you don’t mix them up!

August 8th International Cat Day

Okay, so for all you cat lovers today is the day you can put them up on a pedestal for a reason, it’s International Cat Day. There are over 500 million domesticated cats in the world (most of which I think are in our home) with 71 breeds known to man, a probably a few that aren’t. The domesticated cat is still 96% tiger, which explains why they can turn on you in an instant and most are near sighted, which explains why they don’t know who you are from a distance. Today was created by the International Fund for Animal Welfare in 2002. Cats can be cool, so long as humans are willing to give up their pride.

How to celebrate – Get a cat (if you don’t already have one). Learn about the 71 breeds. See is a tiger in the wild will play with your ball of yarn.

August 5th Work Like A Dog Day

Today is for all those people who work like a dog at their jobs. That is actually a compliment since dogs that do work, are constantly working, they don;t know anything else. The down side of it is that people who work like those dogs often miss out on a lot of life, but if they are happy… what does it matter? We all work hard at jobs we love, if you are lucky enough to find one of those jobs it’s not exactly work you are doing as it is a passion you are living. So if you do work liked a dog because you love your work, good for you!

How to celebrate – Do what you love to do for work. Enjoy your life. Get a work dog.

July 31st Mutt’s Day

Pure bred dogs are pretty to look at for sure but if you want to have a fun, loyal dog you are by far better off with a Mutt! it is estimated that 8 out of 10 dogs are mixed breeds, I doubt they really care. Most are really smart, most are really fun and most love you for you just being you. Unless you are looking to breed you dog or show them at a dog show, who cares about how “pure” they are!?! People aren’t all that “Pure”, why does your dog have to be. Dogs are meant to be a friend, not a show toy that only makes us feel better, not them. Today was created by Collen Paige in Los Angles, California in 2005.

How to celebrate – Love your dog. Love your dog. Love your dog.

April 18th Pet Owner’s Independence Day

Another odd holiday from the good people at Wellcat.com, created in 2002. The general idea is that anyone owning a pet can take today off , if they work, and spend it with their pet. Of course lately, we all have been spending more time with our pets since we have had to be at home more. I am not exactly sure what the Independence Day is all about? Maybe it’s because Pet Day was already taken. While it makes little, to no, sense to me… it’s okay. I love my pets and I am independent of them. (They do not influence my vote)

How to celebrate – Take your pet to lunch. Just make like it’s a regular day and give your pet all the love you can.
