Today is dedicated as National Pet Day to remind us all to give some extra love, and a hug to our pets. It’s amazing how much joy they bring to our lives.
Therapy Dogs are pets that bring comfort and peace to others whether they are in hospital, senior residences, or even libraries for children to read with. Read about the special work that Joyce Akers does with her Shetland Charity at St. Anthony’s Family Center in comforting families in need.
Set aside some time today to give an extra treat or snuggle to a pet who brings you comfort.

Today is #NationalRubberDuckyDay and what better way to celebrate than with dogs and duckies!
I wonder when #DressYourDogLikeADuckDay is!
Dry environments, typically caused by additional home heating in the winter, can cause unpleasant static shocks for your pet. While it might be amusing for sticking balloons to the wall, it can be painful for our furry friends.
Today I found some ways to make the indoors more pleasant (shock free!) for your pets.
The key is to increase the moisture in pet fur or the atmosphere. This can be accomplished in several ways including:
- Humidifying your house
- Using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner at bath time
- Choose metal or ionic brushes which are less likely to build up static
- Lightly mist your hands or your pets coat prior to petting
- Supplement their diet with Omega 3 which helps to improve their coast from within
- Surround your pet with natural fibres (beds and blankets)
Following these steps can help avoid those frizzy fir days, and unexpected nose zaps.
