I didn’t know it, but today is National Spoil Your Dog Day!
You know I couldn’t let it pass without shouting out to some of my favorite pooches, Jack & Milo!
Do you want to know a secret?
It’s kind of silly, actually.
Whenever I think of my dogs, I get extremely homesick. I love and miss my family every day, but there are few things that make me as sad as not seeing my dogs. When my sister sends me a photo of them or I hear them barking in the background while I’m on the phone with my mom, it breaks my heart a little.
I wish I was able to spoil them today, but I’m about 6 hours away from Jack and Milo to be able to do that. Instead, I get to spoil Matt’s dog & Score’s mascot, Sophie!
Sometimes Matt will bring her into the office for the day if he knows he’s going to be here a while. If I’m being completely honest, it’s probably more of a treat for me than it is for the dog! Sophie trots around the office bringing a smile to all of our faces… and leaves a little hair as a surprise for us to remember she was here, too!
If I can’t spoil my own dogs, I might as well spoil his!
When I was apartment hunting this weekend, I actually stumbled across a Pet Carnival in North Royalton, and the area was swarming with adorable dogs! I was super confused what was happening, but in hindsight I guess it makes a lot of sense! Since I’m such a sucker for pups, I did what anyone does when they want to know what’s going on… I googled it.
Dr. Google knows everything.
Turns out, the North Royalton Pet Carnival is an annual event that benefits Molly’s Mission, Give Pets a Chance & W.A.G.S. 4 Kids. Funds raised at the event are matched by the North Royalton Animal Hospital and divided amongst the charities. What a great event for the Cleveland area to have!
Whether you have a dog of your own or not, find a pooch to spoil today! Hug them extra tight, play with them extra long, and make sure to give them a special treat!
