National Pet Week – In The Pacific NW Dogs Rule and Cats Drool
Well, that was weird!
The Townsquare Home Office has shut down my search for a post on pets!
I just got an email that basically read -
with the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show coming up in a month, here's the result of a survey to determine which state's pet owners prefer dogs versus cats.
I thought that sounded interesting to share, so I clicked on the survey and was instantly WARNED that I couldn't go there because the site compromised our corporate off-limits GAMBLING category. Hey, I just wanted to write a story, not place a bet on whether you would read it or not!
Not to be deterred, I found other sources because I WILL WRITE THIS POST!
National Pet Month Is On
June is just 11 days away and June is National Adopt a Rescue Cat Month...and we have 2! And on top of that, we're in May and May is National Pet Month which covers all the furry, feathery, leathery, finny, funny pets ... including dogs...and we have 2.
So, if that's not a semi-weak but legitimate reason to investigate pet populations in a post, then I don't know what is!
So a hunting I did go for pet ownership info for the Pacific Northwest and here's what I found (according to Pawlicy Advisor )
