LOVE YOUR PET DAY is February 20th.
Seems easy enough right? Do we really need a special day on the calendar to call attention to the love we have for our pets all year long? My answer is YES.
According to Sarah Sichman, of the Yahoo! Contributor Network: "The emotional and physical health benefits of owning a pet are well-documented. A pet shows you unconditional love and affection, without the typical drama and arguing that can accompany human relationships. You can tell your pet all of your problems without worrying that they will walk away or be drained by your confessions. Pets are always appreciative for the affection their owners show them, therefore pet owners will never feel used or taken for granted by their pets. Research consistently shows that pets can reduce stress, as well as high blood pressure and high cholesterol in their owners. Sometimes just having something to care about (like a pet) can pull people out of a mild bout of situational depression."
For all that our corgis do for us, for all the joy they bring to our lives; we'll be celebrating Love Your Pet Day on February 23rd, by showing them a little extra love and attention at Rancho Bernardo Dog Park.
It's 2.66 off leash acres are carpeted with thick beautiful grass. There are also trees, benches, bag dispensers, & water fountains in each of it's 3 pens.
I'll bring an assortment of balls for general play. There will also be a few large balls for group corgi herding, the type in the bins at Toy's R Us. These large balls won't last long because they tend to pop when nipped by a herd of corgis. That's part of the fun! So come early. Join in by bringing any balls and bubbles you may have to share.
DIRECTIONS: Off Interstate 15, exit West Bernardo/Pomerado Road. Make a left off the freeway (heading west). The Rancho Bernardo Community Park is approximately 1/4 mile on your right. Continue to the southern most end of the Community Park to the dog park. SEE MAP: click here for larger map (http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/e/a/1/8/highres_12839928.jpeg)
Come indulge your corgi and play ball in the grass until he/she is simply exhausted!
