Okay, that’s not completely true. Part of why I love February is because of Valentine’s Day. I can’t help but wag my tail thinking how happy all my humans will be with the Valentine visits from loved ones and all the special Valentine’s Day events we have planned here at Mount Hope. Every week I watch our residents play bingo, make crafts, bake, and watch movies. I do hope they play my favorite movie this month. Lady and the Tramp is such a classic romance (but it always makes me hungry for spaghetti).
The BIG reasons why I love February are because of what happens the week AFTER Valentine’s Day. There are some pretty special holidays coming up that you may not even know about!
February 20 – Love Your Pet Day
Love Your Pet Day is so easy to celebrate. In fact, I bet you’re doing it already! All you have to do is show your pets you love them with treats, snuggles, and petting. I am so lucky to celebrate this everyday with all my wonderful humans here at Mount Hope!
February 22 – Walking the Dog Day
I am already jumping up and down for this one. Walking the Dog Day isn’t just for dogs, it’s also great for people to stretch their legs and get some exercise. I’m pretty small, so my humans are happy that I usually move at the same speed as them. I hope to celebrate this day with many of my friends at Mount Hope. And I hope it’s warm out!
February 23 – International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
No one really knows how International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day came to be, but that won’t stop me from celebrating it! Did you know the first dog biscuits were invented by an American about 150 years ago? Today there are so many different kinds – and they’re all yummy. I sure do hope I get to celebrate with some great biscuits this year!
