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.
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!
