Some are fun, and some are more frivolous, and yet others are fun BUT also are a great cause. Or they can contribute to a great cause. And September 9th is “Hug Your Hound Day”. I had to research this fun pet holiday, and it was originally created by Ami Moore to remind people of the importance of having a long and lasting bond with your pets. This is about making your relationship with your dog better. Stronger. More meaningful. And the little things you do have a big impact. A dog’s life isn’t as long as we’d love it to be. And that doesn’t have to be morbid – it just means to fill those days and weeks and months and years with a close and unbreakable bond. Nothing matters more to your dog than your love and affection.
And of course, great food and treats!
Did you know that BJ’s has an incredible selection of pet food and treats? I’m all about the treats for Hug Your Hound Day because that’s the best way to spoil your pet! BJ’s offers a large selection of treats like Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Meatballs, which smell GREAT, and Blue Dog Bakery Softies. Both are huge favorites around here! The selection is always tremendous.
I love to treat Astro and Athena, and these treats make us all happy. Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Meatballs are made in the USA and with 100% real meat. No artificial flavors, colors, or fillers. My dogs already know the sound of the bag crinkling, and they come running! Des and I always take our weekly trips to BJ’s together. I push the cart and Des picks out the pet food and treats. You can’t beat that! He also picks out pet beds and pet meds too, but I always make sure it’s what we need. That’s why we love our shopping trips. They have everything we need, and things we didn’t even know we needed.
And that is why we love that BJ’s helps its members spoil their dogs with everything you need. They offer a large selection of pet food brands that cater to our pet’s needs without breaking our budget. And with three pets under our roof, along with our two kids, we’re happy to have a place that has a wide assortment of food and accessories at unbeatable values. As a member, you can shop wet and dry pet food, treats that support dental health, and specialty foods that cater to weight management or complete nutrition. Not to mention that families can save up to $500 a year by shopping at BJ’s.
Celebrate Hug Your Hound Day on September 9th!
We feel like it’s a real privilege to raise, know, and love these animals. They provide us with laughter, companionship, exercise, stress-relief, and a whole lot of snuggles. The best kind of snuggles. It’s no wonder we want to give back to them.
