All American Pet Photo Day ~ July 11, 2019

Pet Photo Day

All around Blogville today, people in the US will be celebrating the All-American Pet Photo Day (“AAPPD”). The Knuckleheads from the ‘Ranch’ are inviting all our fur-iends from around the world to join us today. What little I could find out about this latest calendar ‘howliday’ seemed to indicate the AAPPD was created…you guessed it, due to an algorithm (collected data pointed to an especially large number of pet photos being posted on social media platforms on July 11th). It’s a somewhat new-ish holiday, being created within the past few of years but it has always been observed on July 11th.

It is estimated over half of American households have pets, making it an easy to ‘pawticipate.’ Obviously, dogs and cats are the most popular pets, but those who have birds, fish, hamsters, guinea pigs, turtles, lizards, and other pets are encouraged to  participate.

Although I celebrate these two characters every day, today will be an extra special opportunity to humble brag on about them on social media. So further ado, here are the ‘Ranch hands’ just for today. Do you plan to post an image of your pet-kid today? We’ll be looking for you on Instagram. Sam


Live, love, bark! 🐾

    1. The good news is that we don’t need a special day to post photos of our fur-babies.

    1. Aww, that’s very sweet, dear kitty. I know Sam would no doubt love a date with you. 🥰

  1. I didn’t even realize it was All-American Pet Photo Day yesterday! I guess that was perfect timing on to post some mugshots of the pooches after a silent intermezzo 🙂

  2. Mom says your Ranch hands are just too adorable! Sam look so handsome and Elsa have such beautiful eyes. Great photos of them! 😀

    1. Many thanks, Rambo. You are very kind. I’m kind of biased about the Ranch hands, but think they’re adorable.

    1. Thanks, they make me smile. Every day…much like you guys do for your mum.

  3. Those are great pics if your 2 babies. I post enough pictures of mine that I’ll pass on today, but I hope lots of folks who don’t, that they take this day as a special opportunity.

    1. It’s not like I need a(nother) special day to post pics of the Knuckleheads. But any old excuse, right? 😍

  4. Oh! My! doG! Both pix are great, but the look in Elsa’s eyes! Very similar to the look I get from Ducky. ❤️❤️❤️

  5. We lost our baby in 2015 and hubby says no more. I wish we had a furbaby but we don’t. I’ll just enjoy yours.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches to your pups. ♥

    1. Always happy to share my fur-kids with the world. Sorry you lost your baby in 2015. It’s always so hard, the loss and the absence is heartbreaking. Hugs to you.

    1. Thanks. Just another day in the life of these social media stars! Bwahaha!

        1. Haha! Yeah, I probably need to work on Sam’s self-confidence. 🤣

    2. Thanks! I’m sorta, kinda biased but I think they’re ever so slightly adorable. ☺️

    1. Yeah; we’ll keep our paws crossed Dad can fit a nice photo shoot into his busy day. 📷
