National Dress Up Your Pet Day – Will You?

So today is Saturday, January 7th, 2012. AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog has just became aware that a week from today, January 14, 2012 is a national holiday.

A national holiday, why which one is it? Do we get off from work & school? Are the banks & post offices closed? Is it one of  those one’s for  President’s that they move around, add a weekend to it to make a long week-end away from work? Will there be any parades, televised news coverage?

Nope, ‘fraid not. This coming Saturday, January 14th,2012 is none other then National Dress Up Your Pet Day. Okay researching the most obvious first question – here is the fruit of my labor asked & answered.

How did National Dress Up Your Pet Day Get Started? We have no idea, but it seems like a great way to have fun with your pet while giving him or her a little extra attention for the day.

So let’s just plain  ole get down to it.

  3. I guess it is as good an idea as any for a dog holiday, most of the dog pawties in my town involve dressing up. I don’t know if I will dress up on the 14th or not, depends on the weather and where we are. If it is freezing, I will wear something. I usually only dress for special occasions or for cold weather. I will wear my Mardi Paws dress when I am in the parade, but not for the whole day. I don’t know whose Idea it was, but I’d guess a small dog owner in either CA or NY. BOL!!! I don’t mind wearing clothes, as long as mom leaves my head and my paws nekkid. They feel about the same as my harness and work vest, so no big deal. I will say I am not fond of pants though, I pull my back legs out and the pants flop around like a cape. BOL!! Mom only puts properly fitting dog clothes on me. I do not think I would like those costumes that have arms hanging on the sides, I think I would attack them. BOL!! My Maltese pal used to love dressing up, until one of the grandchildren kept trying to dress him in clothes from Build-a-bear. He likes when an adult dresses him in dog clothes still. He acts proud when he is dressed up, I act like nothing is any different. I guess I ignore the clothes. BOL!! I do give a good shake out once mom takes them off though, just like I do when she she takes my harness off.
