Did you remember that there’s a day just to celebrate puppies? If you forgot, that’s okay; accidents do happen in the puppy world. Though pet parents don’t welcome a puppy into their home until the puppy is a couple months old, here are a few facts about newborn puppies in honor of this special day.
According to PetMD:
Puppies can hear a little bit when they’re born, but their ears are still closed until about 14 days of age.
Puppies are born with fur and nails but no teeth. You’ll see their baby chompers around 4 weeks.
At around 4 weeks old, puppies will start to play in groups.
Puppies are born with a blue-gray color to their eyes; expect their true eye color around 10 weeks.
Puppies can’t regulate their body temperature well, so they need to be in an area around 75 degrees.
Newborn puppies sleep about 90% of the day in between feedings.
Freak snow flurries aside, springtime is just around the corner, and nipping playfully at its heels is National Puppy Day! You could hardly pick a more appropriate date than March 23rd; after all, spring is pretty much synonymous with “season of paralyzingly-cute balls of fluff.”
So how does one go about celebrating the day of the paralyzingly-cute? National Puppy Day was established to spread awareness about unlicensed puppy mills selling dogs though various commercial channels. This special day strives to encourage adoption. Often healthier and better socialized than their pet store counterparts, shelter pups mean less vet bills, less heartache, and tons more fun. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better reason to finally get that puppy you’ve always wanted!
If you’re already in possession of a puppy (or an overgrown one, for that matter), you can still get in the spirit by volunteering at your local animal shelter. These puppies—and many other animals, too—need a little extra love until they find their permanent homes. Otherwise, just set aside March 23rd for you and your own dog. Go on a long walk (weather permitting!) or pal around in the backyard. Buy him a sporty neckerchief in anticipation of warm days! Whatever you do, National Puppy Day is great for appreciating the pooch in your life—or bringing a new one into it!
O, Chieftain of Chew Toys, Sovereign of Sofas, need we further excuse to keep the world revolving about you like an expertly-tossed flying disk? The answer is yes! National Dog Week (September 24th-30th) is nearly upon us, so shake a leg! It’s time to celebrate the canine companion in your life (even if you’re already wrapped around her paw!).
National Dog Week means festivals held in honor of man’s best friend, so keep your eyes peeled for local events! Canine-related festivities afford great opportunities to socialize new puppies, and older dogs will appreciate a little change of scenery and a chance to interact with friends. You’ll be sure to make friends too with people just as fanatical about these amazing animals. The introverted dog and owner might prefer to play some quiet fetch in the park. The family dog might think his time well-spent with his tongue lolling out the car window, surrounded by his people and destined for the beach. If you’re hard-pressed for time, just skirt down the pet aisle and pick up a squeaky toy. It’s your dog’s week, so don’t forget him! May your celebrations be merry, wherever your dog’s paws might lead you!
