I admit. I am excited. Squirrel Awareness Week kicks off today and runs until Sunday, October 13th. I have always loved squirrels - as long back as I can remember. I spent summers as a kid at Longbow Lake, Ontario and it was Squirrel Central there, with what seemed liked dozens and dozens living on our property. They'd spend their days jumping tree to tree, gathering their forest nuts and hiding them in secret places, chasing each other and of course, "chattering" at us and our various family dogs.
So all this week, I will be including interesting squirrel facts, photos and videos. I know there are a lot of squirrel fans out there. Don't be shy. Be proud.
Now HOW do I know that it's Squirrel Awareness Week, you might ask. Well...... Thankfully I was informed of this important annual event through a cool new book, Pet Fashion Almanac 2014, written by Lauren L. Darr and Ellen Zucker. I had been given a sneak peek of the book prior to it's release and was even invited to send in a comment. Seeing my words in the book was pretty darn special, I must say.
The book is perfect for my work as a professional pet blogger. I can keep informed of upcoming events and drool over the various expos and conference listings. (Someday, when I have the Pet Blog Lady RV up and going, I'll be able to do a cross Canada and USA road trip to all of these incredible gatherings) The book also has:
- Pet Holidays- by week, month, and date!
- Pet Media / Publications
- Pet Trade Shows & Conferences
- Pet Organizations
- Fashion Weeks
- Astrology 2014 - Overview & By Month
So please stay tuned this week for all things Squirrel! And be sure to enter my Giveaway for your own set of Squirrel Earbuds.... All the fashion rage in Milan. Okay - maybe not. But still, pretty darn cool.
