FCVC wants to get the month off to a good start by telling you what we will be talking about all month long on our We Talk Pets blog. While not every celebration is a fun day (like National Fire Pup Day or National Plush Animal Lovers Day), we do try to mix the fun in with the seriousness.
With September quickly behind us, October blows us into autumn with a busy month for pet recognition holidays. So in case you were wondering, our friends at DogTipper.com assembled this (not so short!) list for you to keep track:
