Happy National Pet Parents Day to Fur Baby Parents!
Hey pet parents, do you find yourself celebrating Mother’s or Father’s Day as loving parents of your fur babies?
There will always be people saying you are not a real mom or dad until you get a “human” child. While we all know they are wrong, there is a holiday dedicated to us, pet parents — National Pet Parent Day.
That’s right. We get a day to celebrate our dedication and hard work. And there are a lot of us — 84.9 million families in the U.S. own a pet. After all, raising a pet is no easy task, and we should take a moment to celebrate being a pet parent.
National Pet Parent Day is celebrated on the last Sunday of April, and this year, it falls on April 25th.
So, how can we celebrate?
- Enjoy time with your pet. Give it extra attention and affection.
- Pamper your pet with some extra grooming. If you’ve never groomed your dog, we’ve made a guide to help you get started.
- Brag on social media. We, pet parents, are obsessed with our pets and want to showcase them. It’s never been a better time than April 25th.
- Buy yourself and your pet a gift. Luckily, we’ve made a comprehensive list of the best dog gifts and cat gifts.
Wolves were domesticated and treated as pets as early as 12,000–14,000 years ago. In other words, there have been a whole lot of pet parents since. We bet a lot of them wished they had a day dedicated to their love for their pets.
So, this year, on April 25th, make sure you take the time to celebrate being a pet parent and brag a little.
