December is here! To prepare for the last month of the year, we got the last calendar for this year ready for you!
National Mutt Day
The day dedicated to mixed breed dogs. Colleen Paige, Celebrity Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert, and Animal Welfare Advocate founded National Mutt Day in 2005 and it’s celebrated twice a year on July 31st and December 2nd.
On this day we share a united message hoping to raise awareness and change the current state of things: All dogs are lovely and worthy!
Most abandoned dogs living on the streets or in shelters are mixed breed dogs. People often overlook mixed breed dogs in the adoption process. However, they are just as sweet and capable as purebred dogs. They can also work as therapy and service dogs, and make wonderful companions.
On December 2nd, join the cause by spreading the message, volunteering in the shelters, or if you are looking for a pet consider adopting one of the mixed breed dogs waiting for a loving owner and a warm home.
We usually spend this day with our family and loved ones. It’s unnecessary to mention that our pets are a part of our family. For that reason we should never forget to share the love with them as well! Put a little treat under the tree for them as well. Surprise them with a new collar, toy or outfit and watch them destroy the wrapping paper as they unwrap their present. If you are looking for a present for your pet, you can snooze through our shop to see what we have to offer.
Also, remember that while dogs are the best gift for any dog lover, they are not something you should give thoughtlessly. Just like having kids, the decision to own a pet is a big step that requires a lifelong commitment. If you know someone who thinks about giving a dog as a gift, talk with them and make sure they are responsible and have thought it through.
New Year’s Eve
As we celebrate the New Year’s Eve, make sure you take care of yourself and your pet. If you are going out to celebrate, ensure your pet is in safe hands. The noise or fireworks could scare them and make the night unpleasant. You should take care of yourself as well. Be sure to come home safely, because your loyal companion will be waiting to greet you at the door.
We wish you a great time celebrating the winter holidays!
