Love Your Pet Day

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

emoticon emoticon Love Your Pet Day emoticon emoticon

When : Always February 20th

Love Your Pet Day is day to pamper your pet. People just love their pets, and today is an easy excuse to spend time with them, and to give them special treats. Whether its a dog, a cat, a fish, a pet snake, or your pet rock......give them lots of love and attention today.

Interestingly, Ecard companies have a wide choice of cards for today. There are many cards to send to pet owners to make them smile and feel good. However, we did not find a single Ecard to be sent to the pet. ........hmmm.

If you don't have a pet, maybe today is the day to adopt a pet. Take a trip to your local Humane Society, and bring home an animal that needs you. It will make you both feel good.

Origin of Love Your Pet Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. Most likely, it was a pet lover or an animal rights groups.
