Pet Appreciation Week

During Pet Appreciation Week, a time to do something special for your pet, do something they'll really appreciate such as:

  • Lick your dog's face.
  • Bring your cat a dead bird.
  • Get your dog a bone and bury it for him.
  • Make a concerted effort to learn to purr.
  • Eat supper on the floor.
  • Spend quality time with your pet rolling around in something really awful.
  • Eat lots of cabbage this week so you can contribute to the methane production in the house.
