“Can we get a dog? Mommy can we get a dog?! Can we? Can we?! CAN WE?!” Sound familiar? April 26th is National Kids and Pets Day. Many of us grew up with a pet that we loved, cared for, and sometimes drove a little nuts! National Kids and Pets Day recognizes the strong bond between children and their pets. Whether it’s a dog, a cat, a fish, or your pet rock, we’re sure there was a pet in your life that was very special to you while you were growing up. Take a moment to reflect on your favorite pet and remember that there are a thousands of pets just waiting to be taken home from shelters across the country. Go ahead, get the kids a dog! You can thank us for it later.
