Need an excuse to spoil - I mean, pamper! - your pup? February 20 is Love your Pet Day. Though I think it is important we love our pets every day (not just on this day!), what better reason could there be to shower the world with a little extra Scottie Love? Here are five ways you can celebrate Love Your Pet Day with your Scottish Terriers and other furry friends. Share photos of your Love your Pet Day celebration on the Facebook page. You never know who might make a cameo on our blog!
Bake some homemade goodness. Of course, you can't really go wrong with treats of any kind but take it up a level with some fresh-out-of-the-oven (and slightly cooled) treats. Your dogs will think it is Love your Pawrent Day! Looking for inspiration? Check out these 100+ dog treat recipes.
Paint a pretty picture. Look for non-toxic, pet safe paints (try finger paints) and put newspaper on the floor. Then, roll out a bit of white paper. Have your pet dip their paws in the paint colors of your choice and let them leave their mark. Be sure to wipe your pets' paws immediately after they're done playing Picasso. Once dry, date the painting and frame it to be displayed for all to see.
Bend the rules. Dog not allowed on the human bed? Cat not supposed to curl up under the couch protective cover? Bend the rules just this once and you'll be glad you did. It is an easy, cost-effective way to let your pet know you love them and will do pretty much anything to make them happy.
Give a gift from the heart. Whether it is a new outfit, a fun toy or even a donation to a rescue in your pet's honor, gift giving often makes the human feel just as good as the pet receiving it.
Commit to making your home pet-friendly. Whether it is creating a space all their own or adding some pet-friendly features to main living areas, your pet surely will appreciate this gesture. Need something to get those ideas flowing? Here are 40 images celebrating pet-friendly homes.
