The first thing to remember is that not all pets are created equally. Like most humans, some pets have good and bad days. Some pets also have different needs than others. You have to keep these things in mind when exploring ways to keep your pet happy. Understanding and acknowledging your pet’s needs and wants will help you to achieve this goal. The fact that you are even reading this post is a good sign that your pet is probably already living a pretty wonderful life. Keep up the good work!
5 Things to keep in mind if your pet seems unhappy
(Cue wedding music now) Here comes the cat. All dressed in…? Wait. What? Did you just say CAT?
Yes, we said cat.
Did you know that thousands of humans include their pet each year in their big day? Do you have a big day approaching and want to have your most loyal furry companion at your side? You’ve come to the right blog.
National Mutt Day is upon us (July 31st) and we are excited to celebrate! Why, you ask? Because any day that we can officially celebrate our pets is a great day for everyone. There are just so many reasons to love and appreciate our beautiful mixed breeds – and any pet for that matter – that it’s hard to narrow it down to just a few. We’ve tried our best and to help us get our point across we’ve incorporated several pictures for your enjoyment. We certainly love our mixed breed pets!
They are beautiful inside and out.
They are unique.
Mutts cost you less money when you first purchase them and you love them just the same!
Several mixed breed dogs are rescues. That makes us feel good about saving a life.
We love their personalities!
Mutts are said to be healthier than pure bred dogs.
Some people believe that mixed breeds have more common sense.
There are simply lovable!
Do you have a “mutt” in your home that you would like us to celebrate? Share of a picture of your pet and we’d love to post it to our almost 25K fans on Facebook. Thank you for celebrating National Mutt Day with 21st Century AnimalHealthcare and The Paw Print!
You’ve seen it in pictures and perhaps in your home. Do you have a pet that looks or acts like you or a friend that resembles their pup? When did these similarities start? It’s a wonder whether people unintentionally purchase a pet that they can relate to or if the comparisons intensify as the bond progresses throughout the years.
Do you think it’s true or just something people think they see?
According to a 2003 study by Michael Roy at the University of California, San Diego about whether dogs look like their owners, it was concluded that it does appear people want a creature like themselves (just as in the case of selecting a spouse (Berscheid & Reis, 1998)). In this particular study, they went to three nearby dog parks, photographed the dogs and the owners separately, and then asked a group of participants to try to match them up. Despite no additional cues, he found that they were able to work out who lived with whom with reasonable accuracy. The result has since been repeated many times.
Whether it’s personality or looks, do you have a pet that resembles you? Share a look alike picture with us on our Facebook page. Message or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture and we’ll let our fans decide if the theory holds to be true. What types of personality traits do you think your pet has picked up from you or vice versa? We hope to hear from you soon.
