The holidays are a wonderful time to share with family, friends, co-workers and most importantly, your pug! All pets love the holidays because they mean extra tasty goodies, special attention from everyone in the family, cozy snuggles in front of the fire place and having more time with their humans when they are on holiday.
December is chock full of holidays for Denver pugs and all pets to rejoice for!
Pets are very intuitive to when their people are suffering, so celebrating World Aids Awareness Day on December 1st is a must.
Not all pets love baths, but for those pets and pugs who love to splish and splash around, December 5th is Bathtub Party Day.
December 6th, Mitten Tree Day makes Puglsy and his friends giggle. Mittens are for kittens, silly!
December 12th is Poinsettia Day, and while the gorgeous red, white and green leaves fill a room with holiday cheer, Poinsettias are poisonous to animals. Keeping them out of reach of curious cats, and ever persistent pugs is crucial.
Hanukkah is December 20th – 28th, and pets can join in on the fun as well. The Festival of Lights is a special eight day celebration that allows people to spend more time with the ones they love, especially their four-legged friends.
The Winter Solstice is December 21st, and Puglsy and his friends are always in awe of the shortest day of the calendar year, with the longest night of the year. This means more warm cuddles under the blankets before the humans have to go to work.
December 23rd is Festivus which Puglsy was weary of at first because it does not participate in the holiday push to buy gifts, and Pugsly absolutely loves gifts. However, Festivus has taught Pugsly that the best gift he could have is his family.
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day fall on December 24th and 25th and the two day celebration is a favorite of Pugsly’s. The twinkling lights outside and on the tree glimmer in his eyes and he loves opening Christmas presents and getting special dog-friendly goodies.
December 26th through January 1st is Kwanzaa, which is close to Pugsly’s heart because Kwanzaa gives people a chance to celebrate who they are, rather than how they fit into any particular group in society.
New Years Eve on December 31st is so exciting to Puglsy and his Denver pet friends because it symbolizes a fresh start to a brand new year where eating the Christmas tree popcorn garland is far behind them and time for a new healthy outlook. That is, until mom makes more puppy biscuits!
Happy Howlidays to everyone!
