World Animal Day was started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species. October 4 was chosen as World Animal Day as it is the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
Since then, World Animal Day has become a day for remembering and paying tribute to all animals and the people who love and respect them. It's celebrated in different ways in every country, with no regard to nationality, religion, faith or political ideology.
Well this means now that mum has to give into my every whim today!
We will be celebrating our past pets!
Meg the Old english sheepdog.
Gaby the westie.
Winkles the heinz 57
Chad our very beautiful golden retriever.
Rosie the springer spaniel.
Also, the many hamsters mum has had (about 20 odd)
Sam the lop eared bunny
Toby the squeaky guinea pig.
Bill the african grey that grow up with mum and died in 2003 (mum and misses him a lot)
Oscar the eastern rosella ~ mum used to play with him when she was a wee girl.
Budgies that we have had numerous over the years and canaries one of which got addicted to hemp and was always high on the ground (this was back in the 70's so it was all good:)))))
We wish all our past pets in heaven who are looking down on us and caring for us...all our love:)
So back to the living pets....who are the pets you are enjoying now and also in the past?
