Today is a day for pet parents to celebrate their furry, feathered or scaly friends.  Held on April 11th, the holiday was established in 2007 by Colleen Paige, the creator of several other holidays such as National Cat Day.  These holidays were brought about to be a way to promote the option of adopting a family member from local rescues.

How will you celebrate your National Pet Day?  I’ll likely be taking Wedge for a nice long walk in the park!
