Mutt's Day

When : July 31st

It's Mutt's Day.  Mutts deserve their day in the spotlight, as much as a pure breed. If you own a mutt, then you know this day is for you.

By definition a mutt, sometimes called a "Halfbreed", 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. Sure, a mutt doesn't carry the expensive price tag that a purebred with papers has on its head. To the 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.

To all mutts and and mutt owners, we hope you thoroughly enjoy 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!

Do you or have you owned a mutt or do you prefer pure bred dogs?

I prefer cats; they're less work.

We have owned a dog in the past, and it was a mutt.

We always get our pets from a shelter or rescue, whether they're one breed or a mix isn't that important. Our first dog, Molly, was a mutt, Boxer/Retriever mix.

Me too. I've always been more of a cat person. I like other people's dogs :)

I've had both pure bred and mutt's in the past.
