If you love dressing up your dogs, cats and rabbits then today is your lucky day! It’s Dress Up Your Pet Day!
History of Dress Up Your Pet Day
It was in 2009 when Colleen Paige, Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, founded the Dress Up Your Pet Day. She started it to give dogs a little more attention and to give pet owners an idea on how to enjoy their furry friends.
“I really stress comfort and safety for the dog in terms of fashion. Of course, it’s common sense to never dress your dog in anything that can break and puncture the skin, cause choking, ingestion or heat exhaustion. If your dog doesn’t like wearing clothing, there is no use stressing the poor baby out by forcing them to wear something for the human’s entertainment. Perhaps if that’s the case, a nice new collar might be just the ticket.” – Colleen Paige

Some of the most famous pets in the movie history
Rin Tin Tin, Silver Screenings
- Rin Tin Tin. Corporal Lee Duncan, rescuer and owner of Rin Tin Tin, taught his dog perform tricks for fun. Realizing he had a talented pooch, he thought “Rinty” would do well performing in agility and dog shows. While he showed great agility, Rin Tin Tin displayed poor sportsmanship at his first dog show, growling, barking and snapping.Though his first show was not a success, Rinty landed a movie role when he won Los Angeles dog competition with an impressive jump of 11 feet, 9 inches. Rin Tin Tin was an immediate box-office success and went on to appear in 27 Hollywood films, gaining worldwide fame.
- Chris a.ka. Beethoven. The role of Beethoven in the 1992 film was played by a St. Bernard named Chris. For the role, he was trained by famous animal trainer Karl Lewis Miller, who also trained the animals for movies including Babe and Cujo.He’s arguably one of the most famous movie dogs of all time, this mixed-breed pup (played by several similarly scruffy mutts over the years) was the star of dozens of movies from his first feature film in 1974 through his most recent in 2004.
- Buddy. Buddy the Golden Retriever was found by Kevin di Cicco as a stray dog in the Sierra Nevada mountains in the summer of 1989. Kevin brought the dog home to San Diego where he trained him to play a whole slew of sports including basketball, baseball, football, soccer, and hockey.His first appearance was on America’s Funniest Home Videos. He gained further fame dunking baskets on David Letterman’s Stupid Pet Tricks segment of the Late Show with David Letterman.
