Today is Love Your Pet Day – Top 5 Ways to Celebrate
If you have pets then you know what a blessing it is to have them in your family. I am a pet owner. I have three animals. I have a dog named Bailey, a dog named Jasper and a cat named Astro. I love them all very much. So since today is officially Love Your Pet Day, here are 5 ways you can love on them today.
Give them Some Extra Love
Take an extra five minutes today to love on, cuddle, pet and scratch your pet. They will love you for it.
A Special Treat
Get your animals a special treat today. It could be a new toy, a new bone, a new bed, or a special yummy snack that they love.
Why not schedule a grooming appointment for your cuddly cutie. If your animals are like mine, their whole demeanor changes after they get a bath or are groomed. In fact my dog Jasper is getting his grooming on tomorrow. I cannot wait to see this handsome man in his top form. He looks like a sheepdog right now. If you don’t have the extra money for a grooming appointment, then give them a bath and brush them out.
A Long Walk
Let’s face it, our four legged friends love to get out and about when they can. If they are used to running around the backyard, why not change it up. Grab the leash and take off down the block with them. It not only will do them good, it will do you good.
Now I know this sounds weird because most animals are afraid of the vet, but it is a important part of their lives to make sure they are happy and healthy. Regular vet visits show you love your animals and care about their health.
