National Love Your Pet Day!


Today is one of my favorite holidays, National Love Your Pet Day.   It’s kind of like Valentine’s Day for your other significant others. This “unofficial” holiday is a day set aside to give extra attention to and pamper your faithful companions—whether they have fur, feathers or scales.

Think about the unconditional love that your pet provides.  Just by having a pet in your home, you may reap health benefits which include lower blood pressure and stress relief.   And if you are thinking about adding a pet to your household, I can attest that some of the finest come from the Blount County Animal Shelter, my former home.  There are always plenty of shelter pets seeking a forever family.

So, give your pet a little extra attention today in honor of National Love Your Pet Day.  Just because!

Hint to the guys at MK Russell & Abbott who use my image on their trucks: a box of savory treats would be appreciated.  Chicken is my favorite flavor. Peanutbutter is also good, but I digress…
