Today is a special day. Do you know what it is? It’s Love Your Pet Day.
What better day could there possibly be?
I wonder what my person is going to do for me today.
Maybe she’ll take me for an extra long walk on my trails.
Or maybe she’ll even take me to the dog park.
I bet I’ll get lots and lots of treats.
I might even get a new toy or two.
And loves. And lots of Frisbees and balls tossed for me to catch.
I’m so excited! This is going to be a really great day.
Wait a minute!
What did you say, person? Scratchy’s your pet too?
And you’re going to give him special things today?
And you think I should do special things for Scratchy too?
Now that’s going a bit too far.
What’s Scratchy going to do for me?
Hey, where are you going, person?
She left. I don’t believe it. She left.
It’s Love Your Pet Day and our person left us Scratchy. What kind of love is that?
I’ll tell you what, Scratchy. Since it’s Love Your Pet Day I won’t harass you if you don’t harass me. Is that a deal?
Okay good. Deal!

I love you all everyday not just one day but 365 days, even Scratchy

Thanks Patrecia. I love you too. Okay Scratchy, I’ll tell her. Scratchy says he loves you too.

Everyday is Love Your Pet day here in this zoo. I’m sure it’s the same for you Bongo. Adore that photo of you. You look terribly fetching in it 🙂
February 20, 2013 at 12:13 pm
Thanks Susan. I hope every pet in the world gets Love Your Pet Day every day.
February 20, 2013 at 10:48 am
I love you too, Bongo! I would love to have a pet like you!
February 20, 2013 at 12:14 pm
Sweet Kitten. I could come over and visit you and be your temporary pet. My person says she won’t let me stay forever though.
February 20, 2013 at 11:06 am
Maybe she went out to get you two treats and toys for this special day!
Till then, yep, Scratchy is your pet and it sounds like you have a good deal!
Lots of loves from aunt Marina too!
February 20, 2013 at 12:15 pm
Thanks Marina. I hope my person comes back with something special. If not, we’re getting snow right now. If it starts to stick I’ll really have a blast.
February 20, 2013 at 11:12 am
Happy Love Bongo day! Enjoy!
February 20, 2013 at 12:15 pm
Thanks Dogdaz. Same to you.

Hope this truce can last all year!
February 20, 2013 at 12:16 pm
Will and Eko, we’ll try – but it always seems to end when I want to play and Scratchy doesn’t.

Sometimes, you just have to take matters into your own paws.
Love and licks,
February 20, 2013 at 12:15 pm
That’s for sure Cupcake.

Thank you for letting me know Bongo! Extra cuddles for my three friends, today.
Hey! Look who found a new home. Just thought you might get a chuckle out of this: http://bigsurkate.wordpress.com/2013/02/04/dog-found-me-lost-dog/ There are two more installments on this blog. Looks like she’s staying with Bigsurkate!
February 20, 2013 at 12:23 pm
Thanks for sharing that story with me Leslie. How cool that the dog took the initiative and found a safe, loving place to stay.

Ah, so that’s why Moe was giving my nose ‘love pats’ this morning. I was just trying to finish off my beauty sleep, but now I guess I’ll have to give Moe some ‘love pats’ of my own. I’m really glad to hear about this special day & I need to put my treat order in right now.
February 20, 2013 at 3:53 pm
I hope Moe and Lola get lots of loves today. And treats.

Oh we like this day!

Benny & Lily, this day is the best!
February 20, 2013 at 4:21 pm
Wow. I am so happy today is a special day to love my pets! I don’t have a dog so… I send all my dog love to you Bongo!
But I do have cats and they are going to get a little treat today just because ♥
February 20, 2013 at 4:37 pm
Thanks Viciously Sweet. I’ll take all the loves I can get. And I hope your cats have a great day getting loves.
February 20, 2013 at 4:24 pm
Happy Love Your Pet Day, Bongo and Scratchy. For this special ocassion I like to give you the Why I Love thee Award… 😀
February 20, 2013 at 4:47 pm
Thanks Angels Whisper and Little Binky. I hope you have a great Love Your Pet Day too.

Molly: “That explains it Rumpy – guess Love Your Pet Day is why I got to chase the tennis ball so much and even got to carry a stick I found on our morning walk all the way home – and got to keep it in the back yard. Hope you got to play some, too…Oh, can we have more of these days?”
February 20, 2013 at 7:05 pm
Molly, I agree. Love Your Pet Day should be every day. I got to go for a walk in the snow. I’m just hoping we get more of it. It covered the trees and most of the ground, but not my trails.

I do hope she left to buy you as many toys and treats as she could fit in the car?? *serious ears*
February 21, 2013 at 11:09 am
Dalton, all those toys and treats must be very heavy because my person hasn’t managed to carry them into the house yet. I’m still waiting.
February 21, 2013 at 5:05 am
Your person might have left to buy a Dog-Cat and a Cat-Dog Dictionary for you!
February 21, 2013 at 11:10 am
Kolytyi, that would be a good thing. Maybe it would teach Scratchy to communicate with something other than his claws.
February 21, 2013 at 7:11 am
I didn’t know that today is Love Your Pet Day, so thank you for letting me know Bongo!
I love you Bongo and ….well…*hem hem* Scratchy, too!!! *blush*
P.S. I hope you get some lovely treats from your person! 🙂
February 21, 2013 at 11:11 am
Thanks Kevin. I love you too. I’m still waiting for the treats though – I mean, extra treats.
February 21, 2013 at 8:58 am
Maybe there is also a love you dog day when your person will spoil only you, Bongo 🙂
February 21, 2013 at 11:12 am
Remy, that would be awesome. Scratchy would be so jealous.
February 22, 2013 at 5:38 pm
I am so behind with my blog reading I just now found out about this special day. I don’t think Teddy knows about it or he would have wallopped for not knowing. Hope your day was filled with loves.
February 22, 2013 at 9:01 pm
Patricia, it happens every year on February 20th, so you can put it on your calendar for next year now and give Teddy double loves to make up for it.
February 22, 2013 at 9:04 pm
Will do! Thanks, Bongo.
