TinkerToy here again (and remember, only Mom calls me that to my face).
You can even read a sneak preview below, just as soon as I make you aware of something that might be even more important.
#2 – I’m worried that Mom might be losing her marbles!
I really don’t care much if nobody remembers that February is National Pet Dental Health Month. I mean, I don’t think many of my bloggin’ buds want to get their teeth brushed more often anyway.
But I do think it’s pretty darned important to know that
February is Responsible Pet Owners Month, don’t you?
I think even Mom agrees, but is it on her calendar anywhere this month? No it is not.
AND – ahem! – National Love Your Pet Day was this past Monday, February 20 – an important day for ALL of us. I sure don’t remember getting a bunch of extra cuddles and treats at the beginning of this week, do you guys?
And TODAY is February 23,
and I’ll bet nobody knows what that means.
It’s National Dog Biscuit Day!
(no kidding – Google it)
How is everybody supposed to remember to stock up
if Mom can’t remember to list it in that calendar?
Even if it’s too late to go buy some, there are online videos showing two-legses everywhere how to cook the kind you make at home. But has Mom set FOOT ONE in that kitchen all day? No she has not!
I don’t think she even knows what day it is.
Do what she says, not what she does
She constantly checks those Mental Health Awareness calendars to keep her on track (no worries there, she never had a sense of time, my Mom) – but how is she going to remember these really important days if she doesn’t even put them in her calendars?
What could be better for mental health than a happy little dog by your side? (OR cat or pig or rabbit and all – but it IS National Dog Biscuit Day, ya’ know).
I don’t know about you, but snacks make me a pretty happy little dog. And as long as she’s forkin’ ’em over, I’m gonna’ be RIGHT by her side.
And guess what else she didn’t remember to list?
