Although some four-legged friends may not be all that thrilled about this “howliday”, today is going to the dogs – and cats - and pigs - and horses. Jan. 14 is National Dress Up Your Pet Day, an annual event created by friend and animal behaviorist, Colleen Paige.
Fido’s and Fluffy’s across America celebrate by getting all dolled up in their very best doggy duds andfeline frocks. And just in case you or your furry friend are having a “ruff” day, with some simple planning you can even wear matching outfits in honor of this special day. Then head outside and go for a stroll out on the town or walk around the “bark.” And if you are lucky enough to live in warmer climates, why not go for a cruise in the convertible with the top down. You’re sure to be the cat’s meow or top dog in town!
So whether your family consists of felines, canines, frogs, birds or horses or critters in-between, pamper your pet today and get their fashionista on! Today is also Organize Your Home Day!
While it's important to remember that while dressing pets in cute costumes or outrageous outfits can be loads of fun, it is important to keep their safety and well-being in mind. Check apparel/costumes for possible choking hazards. Ensure the items fit comfortably and do not restrict their breathing. Depending where you live, make sure your pet’s outfit is weather-appropriate for your neck-of-the-woods.
