Awww, that dog!

I’m clearly saying this in the, “look at that cute little puppy” context, and in no way referring to my ex that lied, cheated, and stomped all over my heart! It’s National Puppy Day and we’re celebrating the cute little furry, fluffy, doe-eyed babies of the canine world. If you already own one of these beautiful, loyal, funny best friends, you know exactly why they deserve their own day of love and appreciation!

To celebrate indulge them with extra hugs, kissesfather-1411543_1280, and rubs.  Spend more time outside running around, throwing the ball or burying things in the grass.   Take them to Pet Smart, PetCo, Home Depot or any other puppy friendly place where they can pick out a new toy.  If your baby is a couch potato, turn on the dog station and watch something dog rated and approved.

If you don’t own one of the best pets in the world, today is a great day to adopt.  Visit your local ASPCA and make the best decision of your life.  Bring home a friend that will shit in the yard and not all over your feelings.

If you’re just not the puppy type, besides seeking professional help for your evil ways, I don’t know what you can do to celebrate, but I will be praying for your soul.

Have fun and holiday on my friends!

What if Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day

As if my dog needs one more thing to make him feel like he is my equal.  We already share a couch, a bed, a car.  I fear that if he had thumbs, he’d try taking over the kitchen.  On the other hand, I’d enjoy having him learn how to lift and lower the toilet seat.  Last year, when the snow prevented me from opening my front door, forcing me to open the back door slider and shovel 3 feet of snow to let him outside, those opposable thumbs would have come in handy.

On the other hand, if my precious Yorkie were anymore independent, he’d be a cat.  Never a cat owner, myself.  I resent all the pet preferential treatment cats receive and I suspect, had they thumbs, humans would be the teddy bears of their world, with a usefulness limited to cuddling.

At any rate, today is the day we dream of “what ifs” and maybe we can take liberty with this holiday and go beyond opposable thumbs and our pets.  What if we dyed our hair? What if we never stop dreaming?  What if we never stop smiling?  What if…?   So many possibilities and the rest of our lives to try them all out.  Have a wonderful “what if” day!
