National Pet Week

National Pet Week

According to those more “in the know” than I, this week (May 4th through May 10th -- or 1st through 7th depending on who you read) is our official National Pet Week (note: this is not National Pet Peeve Week – that’s in October). This year’s theme (for the U.S. version of this celebration) is “Pets Make a Difference.”

In addition to sponsoring contests and activities, National Pet Week serves several purposes:

To promote responsible pet ownership
To communicate the value of pets for people and people for pets
To raise awareness of the importance of animal health professionals and related services
To increase public awareness of the role, value and contribution to society of working companion animals

In honor of our national celebration, I’ve decided to develop a list of how our canine kids have made a difference in our lives.

I’m still working on it and will post it tomorrow (hehe).

‘Til next time,
