I know you’ve heard of Mother’s Day, but have you heard of Dog Mom’s Day? I polled my @RawrSimba Instagram fam and most didn’t know there was such a thing as Dog Mom’s Day. So, if you’ve never heard of this special day for dog moms, you are not alone.
What is Dog Mom’s Day?
Dog Mom’s Day is a pecial day to celebrate all the dog moms out there. A lot of people consider themselves a “dog mom”, myself included. I wrote a Dear Dog Mom blog post all about it. Some dog moms only have dogs as their kid and others have dogs and human kids as well. National Dog Mom’s Day is all about you and the bond that you share with your dog that made you call yourself a dog mom in the first place. Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App founded Dog Mom’s Day in 2018.
When is Dog Mom’s Day?
National Dog Mom’s Day is on the 2nd Saturday in May which is right before Mother’s Day every year. Proud dog moms are everywhere so it’s only right we get a special day! Another poll on my Instagram showed me that 80% of my dog lover followers call themselves a dog mom and a majority of them are buying a gift for Dog Mom’s Day although they didn’t know it was a holiday at the time. Most dog moms just celebrate Mother’s Day, but now there is a special day just for dog moms too.
