It’s national Love Your Pet Day today. As a website filled with animal lovers, we don’t think there needs to be a day dedicated to loving our pets, but we are totally on board with this.
National Love Your Pet Day is a day when we can all celebrate our love for our pets, whether that’s a dog, cat, hamster, fish or crocodile.
You can let your pet know how much you love them with some extra cuddles, a nice long walk, a special treat (not one that will poison it, obviously) and by sharing your pictures to let the world know just how much you love them.
Want to show off your pet? Email us firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @MetroUK
One way to treat your dog is to let them roll round in the mud without objection
