But shush, don't tell our mom we can do this! She's been wondering how those doggy treat bags get opened even though the cabinet door is closed. When she says, "How did these treats get opened? Did you get into the cabinet?" We just look up wagging our tails in amazement with cute expressions of puzzlement. "How could that happen? Oh, we are just as shocked as you are! And we'd just love one of those peanut butter cookies please."
So while JerseyLil watches paint dry and puts up new shelves in her closet, we've got some interesting tidbits to share. Bring all your dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, rodents, any and all pets over to the computer. Think your pets can't read, well think again, we've been foolin' you all these years! We'll share with the human moms and dads too.
January Events to Bark About
Adopt a Rescued Bird Month
Just like rescued dogs and cats, our rescued feathered friends need good forever homes.
Pet Education: Adopt a Rescued Bird Month
Walk Your Pet Month
Four paws up on this, we love walks! Great exercise for two-leggers and four-leggers. Good luck walking the cat though. :)
National Train Your Dog (and maybe your Cat too) Month
Both of us are basically well trained (most of the time anyway!), and we know our basic Sit, Down, Stay commands. We're a bit rusty (well, rusty isn't what our mom calls it!) on our Coming When Called and Walking Without Pulling commands, so it may be time to dig up a few new tips. Good link to pass along to your humans with info on training, playing with toys, socialization, commands, tricks, and more:
Train Your Dog Month Tips
We don't want our cat friends to be left out, so we sniffed around and found information on cat training. (Yeah, cats, if we've gotta be trained, you're getting trained too!)
Association of Pet Dog Trainers Going to the Cats!
January 14 is National Dress Up Your Pet Day
OK, we are Not dressing up LOL! But some of our friends are Party Animals and don't mind dressing up to amuse their humans. We "pinched" some funny pics of animals in costumes from our blog friend, Robert of Mulled Madness.and Mulled Vine. (Thanks for sharing, Robert!) Others we found while sniffing around the Internet. We had fun adding the captions.
