September 25th International Rabbit Day

Those cute little bunnies that hop everywhere they go, including into gardens and then destroy every plant you have growing. Well, they are cute, and cuddly and the third most popular pet in the world. It really is hard to find fault with any animal who goes about living their lives as they were intended to live them. This holiday apparently began in the UK as “Rabbit Charity” Day, assuming because farmers were charitable to them at least this one day in the year and to remind people that the bunny is not just for Easter. Rabbits generally live around 9 years and are capable of moving at 25 mph.

How to celebrate – Learn about the 50 breeds of rabbits. (I would have thought there were more) Learn how the rabbit became a part of Easter. Get a rabbit as a pet. (But be ready to clean up after it)

April 11th National Pet Day

Today was created by Colleen Paige, Pet and Family Lifestyle Expert, in 2006. It should have been created long before that! Pets are more than just animals in our houses, yards, they are a part of our families, friends and lives. Whether your pet is a dog, cat, rabbit, snake, whatever, it depends on you but you also depend on it. My dog is one of my best friends. No, it’s not like my wife or kid, it’s can’t go have drinks with me at a club and though it tries really hard, it can’t catch the football I throw around in the back yard. But she is always there, trying to make me smile and ready to give me kisses for absolutely no reason at all.

How to celebrate – Love your pet. If you don’t have a pet rescue one from a shelter. Give your best friend a hug. not just today but every day.

September 28th International Rabbit Day

Sept. 28th International Rabbit Day

Some call this Bunny day but either way it always falls on the last Saturday in September. Unless you have a garden, it’s pretty hard not to love rabbits.  They are soft and cuddly, cute to watch and they always leave a trail for you to follow to find them. Now you might think Bunny Day would fall closer to Easter, but we are talking about real rabbits here, not the man-made kind. If you get one for a pet be careful, they do bite, but they really don’t mean it.

How to celebrate – Adopt a pet rabbit. Search for rabbits in the woods. Dress up like a bunny and see if anyone notices. Visit peacebunnyisland.org to learn more about this teen’s awesome work rescuing rabbits.
