National Pet Memorial Day
“National Pet Memorial Day is a special holiday for pet parents which is observed on the second Sunday each September. The first Pet Memorial Day was celebrated over 40 years ago and it continues to grow in popularity each year. It is a unique day carved out in our hectic, yearly calendar to reflect upon, celebrate and honor the memories of beloved pets that have passed on, but still have a special place in our hearts.
It’s a great day to share with others what a tremendous impact pets make and how their bond is everlasting. If you would like to share your memories, you can use #NationalPetMemorialDay to post pictures and remembrances of your pet online for all to see.

National Hug Your Hound Day
“National Hug Your Hound Day is observed annually on the second Sunday in September. This day is dedicated to your furry pooch and the way your dog spends her day. National Hug Your Hound Day is about truly observing your dog (from his point of view) in his environment and everyday life. As you celebrate your furry friend, remember that today is about keeping our hounds healthy, happy and safe.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Take today to spend a little extra time with your pups, get down to their level and make sure their environment and the places you take them are warm, comforting, inviting and safe. Oh yeah, and give your hounds some hugs! Use #NationalHugYourHoundDay to post on social media.” – Learn More
