Today is Love Your Pet Day!

Sharing is caring!

Did you know February 20th is Love Your Pet Day? I just found that out, as I was trying to figure out what to write today. So this will be two pet posts in one week…

Of course I love my pets every day, as I imagine you do too. Our pets (3 dogs, 4 cats) bring our family a lot of love and joy. I can’t imagine life without our furry family members. So since it’s a love fest day for our pets, I am going to share with you something that I find endearing about each of them.

Saint is a very petite lab mix…she is an absolute love and super cuddly. She’d like to be a lap dog. You can find Saint wherever her people are!

Clara is an English Shepard mix who loves to swim. Take her hiking, and she will be in any river or pond instantly! She will do laps until you make her get out!

Murphy, a German Shepard / Golden Retriever mix (People tend to think he’s a lab, but he’s our one non shelter dog and I have met his parents), chases his tail like a cat, which we find funny no matter how many times he does it. He’s chasing it as I write this!

And of course I love the relationship between Murphy and Luna, which I wrote about on Valentine’s Day. Luna has the loudest motor I have ever heard on a cat…we love listening to her purr! And she likes to explore…as you can see from the picture I took of her in our kitchen.

Calypso likes to sit under the faucet and get drenched while licking the water off her fur. This is one of her favorite spots to hang out when the weather is warmer.


Oreo is quite helpful to me during the workday walking across my computer while I am trying to type and whacking me with her paw, which means “I want you to turn the faucet on for me now”. Other than that, Oreo loves to sleep.


Although we have a cat door, Gunner will come to the back french doors and paw at the glass to come in while looking at me like “I have been stranded out here without food and water for sooooo long,” even if he just went out 5 minutes ago. Gunner’s nickname is Big Boy – he really likes to eat.

What do you love about your pets?
