Happy National “Hug Your Hound” Day!

National Hug Your Hound Day is celebrated every year as the dog-days of summer come to a close. The second Sunday of September is a national holiday that serves as a reminder to keep our four-legged friends healthy, safe and happy!

The paws-ibilities are endless for what you can do to celebrate National Hug Your Hound Day. Here are a few ideas to celebrate this howliday together:

  • Have a pet-friendly paw-ty at your house
  • Take your dog on a long walk.
  • Visit a dog park and have a picnic.
  • Go do service at your local animal shelter.
  • Take a trip to your pet store to purchase your pooch a new toy. {Or just order them a special treat that you know they will love! Try Enar’s Favorite Cookies in Westminster–all the dogs LOVE their cookies and treats!}
  • Play fetch at the park (maybe at the NEW Fitchburg Dog Park?).
  • Give K9 Pawformance Massage a call and schedule a doggy massage for your pup!
  • Enjoy a dog-inspired movie marathon with films such as Beethoven, Must Love Dogs, Homeward Bound, Marley & Me, Hachi, Eight Below, Best In Show, Max, Turner and Hooch, or All Dogs Go To Heaven – to name a few!

Finally, give your pooch a hug (duh) and tell him/her how much you love them!
