Get ready to celebrate the best friend that anyone could have on National Pedro Day on January 23! This day is all about honoring and appreciating our furry companions – dogs! It was created as a way to raise awareness for animal adoption and to encourage people to consider adopting a dog from a shelter. Whether you have a Pedro of your own or just love dogs in general, this is the perfect day to show them some extra love and spoil them with treats, walks, and belly rubs. So let's give a big shoutout to all the Pedros out there and make this day extra special for them!
