Welcome to Magazine Monday! Did you know May is National Pet Month? A month to celebrate the benefits of pet ownership and support pet adoption.
According to our reader survey, over half of our readers are pet owners. I myself am the proud mama of an Italian Greyhound named Lexus (she’s made an appearance on this blog a time or two…does anyone remember Santa’s helper?). I adopted her three years ago, and I can honestly say she warmed her way into my heart (except for the days when she decides she’s part-cat and therefore wants nothing to do with me).
Can anyone relate? Well, this month is set aside to give back to our pets. Whether you’re up for a Mani-PETi (a day of grooming for both you and your pet) or you’ve thought about adopting a new friend, May is the month to do it!
Looking for ideas? Check out these cute projects from 350 Cards & Gifts:
