Considering that life has gone way too busy these days, we hardly have any time for others. If those others include our family, friends and relatives they can understand the reason behind not having time for them. However, there is someone somewhere in a corner of your house who always waits for you but cannot express any feelings even if you don’t give any time. If you are still unable to guess who that is, then it is your pet. It can be a cat, dog or any other animal who lives in your house like a family member and equally requires your love and attention. If you have not been giving time to your pet for any reason, then today, 18th of April, is perhaps the right one for this purpose. This is because today is Pet Owner’s Day.
Origin and Background
There is not much information available as far as the origin of Pet Owner’s Day is concerned. It is believed that the day is often referred to as Pet Owner’s Independence Day and pet owners can get a day off from work and spend ime with their pets instead. Besides, it is also thought that on this day, the owners are allowed to take pets to work.
Purpose of observing Pet Owner’s Day
Someone who adopts an animal as a pet goes on to take care of it in very much the same way as he cares for the whole family. There are many such pet owners who seem to have devoted their lives for their pets and have cared for them more like a mother who cares for an infant. Hence the purpose of observing Pet Owner’s Day is to honor the pet owners for all the care they give to their pets.
Celebrating Pet Owner’s Day
If you are a pet owner, then there can be a number of celebrations that you can associate with this day. For example, take a day off from work and spend the whole day with your pet. Take the pet to a place where it can enjoy along with the whole family or if possible, take the pet to your workplace. If there is something that your pet likes to eat, then serve it as much as is liked by the pet.
