92 Strange Holidays to Celebrate with Your Dog

92 Strange Holidays to Celebrate with Your Dog

 

As if you needed a reason to celebrate with your dog, I found LOTS of dog-related holidays for you! You can even celebrate an entire month!

I bet you didn’t realize just how many holidays there are that are related to pets! I know I didn’t!

I found these holidays listed in various places on the Internet and checked multiple sources to make sure it wasn’t something just made up by one website. And I only picked out the holidays that involve dogs because I thought those would be most important to you. Or that can be celebrated with a dog, (like best friends day).

So get out your calendar and a pen and let’s get to it!
