April is a big month for events and holidays. Whether you celebrate Easter, or not, it’s a nice time to be able to reconnect with friends and family over a long weekend. It’s also the month we celebrate World Pet Day, Lost Dog Awareness Day, International Guide Dog Day and World Vet Day.

There’s also some fun, weird and wacky days to celebrate too! Let’s play…

April 2017 #DDUpawtographaday


Daily Themes and Creativity Prompts

01 ::  FOOL The day when pranks, hoaxes and lies are pawfectly acceptable. Don’t be caught out on April Fools Day!

02 :: GRASSY as the long, warm days slip away, be sure to soak up plenty of play time outside on the grass. Maybe find something extra-stinky to roll in and enjoy.

03 :: PAWTY who doesn’t love a pawty? On World Party Day, go hard and enjoy!

04:: HOME on World Stray Animal Day take time to be thankful for your home and family. And, to spare a thought to the millions of animals that don’t have a home to call their own.

05 :: TREKKIE  boldly go where no-one else has gone before on Star Trek Day.

06 :: TARTAN we don’t mind a bit ‘o tartan. Wear your tartan with pride on Tartan Day.

07 ::  HEALTHY it’s World Health Day. Consider making a batch of our healthy treats for dogs. You’ll love how quick, easy and health these treats are!

08 ::  SATUR-DAZE chill out and enjoy the Saturday. You’ve earned it.

09 :: LAZY  hey, why not make the most of relax mode and have a lazy Sunday, too?!

10 :: SIBLING do you have a sibling at home? Brother from another mother? Shout out to your siblings today for making life just that whole lot better.

11 :: ME it’s Pet Day. A day for all pets to be pampered. Then pampered a little bit more. Today is all about you.

12 :: WILD who knew there was a Walk On Your Wild Side Day? We’re up for being a little wild today, how about you?

13 :: THROW BACK it would be remiss not to have at least one throw back each month. Show us a little something something from way back.

14 ::  BLESSINGS today is a good day to spend time with loved ones and count your blessings. How will you spend the day?

15 ::  BUNNY we just know you have a bunny costume somewhere! Show us your best-bunny look. No costume?

16:: PJs if you have to work today, it’s a good day. It’s Wear Your PJs to Work Day. Working or not, give us a peek at your pjs.

17 :: EASTER what does Easter mean to you? Show us Easter in your home.

20 :: HAPPY MEMORY we’ve snuck another TBT into the month. Share a happy memory from your past.
