National Love Your Pet Day

National Love Your Pet Day is celebrated every February 20th in the United States. Now from everything I've read, this is the day we remember our pets in a special way and show our love for them. We mark it on our calendar as a special bonding time just for our pets. 

Thepetwiki site says "it's a day similar to Valentine's Day." Although we love our pets everyday it's good to have a day to focus on the relationship we have for our furry family members. It's a day to bring happiness into the home all in celebration of Love Your Pet Day. 

Wikipedia says "Pets provide their owners (or "guardians") both physical and emotional benefits. Walking a dog can provide both the human and the dog with exercise, fresh air, and social interaction. Pets can give companionship to people who are living alone or elderly adults who do not have adequate social interaction with other people."

It is widely believed among the public, and among many scientists, that pets probably bring mental and physical health benefits to their owners.

Origin of this Holiday
My research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.  It is possible this holiday may of been created by the greeting card industry like many Unofficial holidays are. But... I could not find reference to that either. I did find however, pet related cards you can send based on pets. 123Greeting

This holiday is referred to as a "National" day- 
However, I did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though I didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized through social media to celebrate.  So enjoy the day and have fun with it.

Recognition about this holiday from:
calendar sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this holiday. Many of these blogs talk about their pets and wish everyone a Happy Love Your Pet Day. Other's give examples of how they are spoiling their pet for the day. And many pet lovers will be posting pictures today of their beloved pets.

Gorilla the cat!
I thought I would get in on "Love your Pet Day" and post a couple of pictures of me and my male cat Gorilla. "My Heart My Heart My Heart"!

I have a great love for all animals and you will find that I post a lot of personal pictures of my pets all throughout my blog. 

I hope you do take the time to show your pet some affection today. Do something for your pet that you know they would love. A new pet toy perhaps? A new fluffy bed perhaps? A new sweater perhaps? Or how about a pack of treats!!! The biggest thing is to show your pet some love today. Have some cuddles that will make them feel really special. They love it!  Happy National Love Your Pet Day Everyone!
