This morning, like every morning I was woken up by my dog Olive, and her foster sister for the time being, Gracie the Yorkie. I live up on the third floor, there is no elevator, so guess who climbs up and down multiple times a day to beg her foster dog to potty on command? I was driving to work thinking about how I have to just drive right back home at lunch time to let the girls out. Clearly there is a lot of love in my home, and half of it is coming directly from the dogs who just want to play all day every day and sneak a snack in between play sessions. Today serves as my reminder to go out of my way to show my pets I love them. I have a drive through Starbucks for whipped cream and a trip to Petsmart scheduled for the sassy girls today.

Our office dog Tucker even made an appearance at the office today, and he is playing fetch with whoever decides to come by and say "Hello" to him. It's only fitting that we have a day dedicated to remind us to love on our pets, after all their unconditional love is all we need to get through some tough days right? Happy National Love Your Pet Day! If you have a picture of your pet feel free to upload a photo of them in the comments below!
