DOUBLE NATIONAL DAY
Found it difficult to choose between these two candidates today.
NATIONAL MUTT DAY
National Mutt Day encourages us to embrace, save and celebrate mixed breed dogs twice a year on July 31st and December 2nd.
Desperately longing for a new home, millions of loving and healthy mixed breed dogs in shelters wait for someone to come and adopt them. National Mutt Day provides an excellent opportunity to find the perfect canine companion. Despite the name, a mutt learns, obeys and trains much like purebred animals. While their lineage cannot be traced and their features a bit murky, their companionship will be faithful.
According to the ASPCA, approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year. When these abandoned and often abused animals find their way to a shelter, each one needs a forever home. Whether you know it or not, their potential is limitless. Some of the benefits of adoption are often hidden. Human and canine both enjoy increased physical activity. Another boost is social interaction through daily walks. While humans develop patience, their four-legged companion learns to trust and new limits. For example, as dogs explore the many scents of the human lifestyle, they usually discover shoes are off-limits.
No matter the breed, size or demeanor of the human, er, canine, the shelter will take the time to find the right home for their animals. They schedule visits and have procedures in place to promote healthy adoptions for families and individuals. While some dogs experience injury or illness, the shelters work with veterinarians to heal the animals before making them available for adoption.
Of course, shelters always welcome donations and volunteers. Dogs love walking, playing and being loved even if they haven’t found their forever home. Every moment they spend socializing increases their opportunity for adoption.
NATIONAL FRITTERS DAY
National Fritters Day on December 2nd allows for no frittering away of the time. So make haste and get them while they are hot!
Fritters come in various forms, from morsels dipped in flavorful batters to bits of dough stuffed or filled with delicious surprises. All of the varieties are deep-fried and served hot with dips, drips, or dustings of seasonings, sweets, or sauces. Cultures all over the world make some kind of fritter. May believe Ancient Romans first consumed fritters. They then introduced them to Europe. Most commonly filled with fruit or cheese, fritters can also be filled with savory meats, seafood, and vegetables.
Serve up some fritters with your meal tonight. You can try corn fritters or apple fritters. Another favorite is potato fritters. Try a few different recipes, but be sure to share your favorite. We’ve provided some recipes to enjoy.
Used in a sentence: I love fritters so much, I often just fritter away my time.
