Mutt's Day

When : July 31st

It's Mutt's Day. Mutts deserve their day in the spotlight, as much as a pure breed. If you own a mutt, or you are a mutt (reading this), then you know this day is for you.

By definition a mutt, sometimes called a "Halfbreed", is a dog that is of mixed breed. They come from two to several breeds. Purebred owners, and sometimes the public in general, view them as lesser in many ways. Mutt owners know better. They value the diversity and uniqueness of their mutts. Sure, a mutt doesn't carry the expensive price tag that a purebred with papers has on its head. To the mutt owner, however, the mutt is invaluable. In addition, mutts don't walk around needing to prove anything. You won't see them strutting around any dog shows trying to prove they are the best.

To all mutts and and mutt owners, we hope you thoroughly enjoy Mutt's Day. Spend the day relaxing and doing all the things you and your dog like to do. Do so with both of your chins held high. For your mutt is worth a million bucks!

    Great blog! You are right about Mutts they are very smart and without some of the quirks of some purebreds.

    We had one Pluto he was the best dog we ever had. Without training he would walk with us down the street with other dogs barking and running up to him and he would look at them like they were crazy. Our kids were little at the time and he never once was aggressive towards the kids if he got tired of them sitting on him or pulling his ears, lips or toes he would gently get up and walk into another room.

    Have a great Mutt day with your Mutt!
