National Mutt's Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always celebrated on July 31
It's National Mutt's Day. It's also called National Mixed Breed Dog Day. When you think about it, the majority of Americans have a lot in common with mixed breed dogs. Many of us are mixed breeds ourselves. Call me a mutt if you will, but I am proud of and cherish my mixed roots. That makes mixed breed dogs very special.
Mutts deserve their day in the spotlight, as much as a pure breed. And, mixed breed dogs are just as special as pure breeds. If you own a mutt, or you are a mutt (reading this), then you know this day is for you.
By definition a mutt, sometimes called a "half-breed", is a dog that is of mixed breed. They come from two to several breeds. Purebred owners, and sometimes the public in general, view them as lesser in many ways. Mutt owners know better. They value the diversity and uniqueness of their mutts. A mutt doesn't carry an expensive price tag. A purebred with papers, will cost you pretty penny. To a mutt owner however, the mutt is invaluable. In addition, mutts don't walk around needing to prove anything. You won't see them strutting around any dog shows trying to prove they are the best. They know their worth. They're priceless.
Did You Know? 8 out of 10 dogs are mixed breed.
To all mutts and mutt owners, we hope you thoroughly enjoy National Mutt's Day. Spend the day relaxing and doing all the things you and your dog like to do. Do so with both of your chins held high. For your mutt is worth a million bucks!
National Mutt's Day was created in 2005 by Celebrity Pet and Family Lifestyle expert and animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige of Los Angeles, CA.
Note: It is suggested that this holiday is to be celebrated on both July 31 and December 2. There are thousands of important holidays in existence. If all of these events began to be celebrated on multiple days, the holiday calendar would be overwhelmed. However, nothing keeps you from celebrating this day on both dates, if you so choose.
We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
