Today is National Pet Day! In honor of this informal holiday, we’re sharing the above photo of Winston and Churchill, two dogs that frequently visit the Edhat Headquarters. While they weren’t born in the UK, these brothers have adopted some British sensibilities. They greatly enjoy biscuits of the canine variety, afternoon tea is a must, and don’t you dare disparage the Queen in their company.
It’s not all about cats and dogs, today honors any kind of household pet. Guinea pigs, birds, bunnies, and even rats are all examples of a pets people keep in their home and they should be honored today too! Send in photos of your pets with a personality description in honor of today to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ringo Starr is quite the problem solver, tenacious, lively, and inquisitive. Always excited to attend the latest social event, whether that’s going to the office with mom or dad, meeting friends for walkies, or dinner at The Brewhouse. Lap-warming is also at the top of his to-do list, which he is most excellent at.

Errol, a lionhead, prefers his mate most of the time but loves his morning petting.
Charlie, a Holland lop, as an Ewok on May the 4th. Charlie is the house alarm clock, 5:30 every morning he is in the bedroom making sure we know it is breakfast time. Most afternoons around 4:30, we find him staring at the fridge waiting for his afternoon veggies.
Cashew, aka the squeaky dictator, having an evening snuggle under a towel. Around feeding time, he starts squealing until we feed him. Also, any time he hears the vegetable bins being removed from the fridge, he ‘requests’ a snack

This is Sunny, he is 1 year old today April 11. Sunny has been with me since his birth. At 8 weeks old he got sick and went to a medical foster. At 11 weeks old the shelters Vet said he had neurological damage and should be put to sleep. I asked for him back and over 2 days nursed him back to health. Sadly the shelter still wanted to put him to sleep because of the Vets diagnosis. I adopted him and found out he was hypoglycemic and all he needed was some sugar to get his levels back up. Today he is 1 year old and a healthy 12 pounds. Sunny is the calmest kitty ever, he just loves to hang out with his humans. I am so happy I saved this beautiful kitty.

Here’s our baby Daisy she’s a rescue that was found in the streets abandoned, scared, matted fur and needing love. She is so sweet and so special I can’t imagine anyone leaving her. And with her is our princess kitty Lucy.
My two 14 year old sweet senior souls Rocky and Bry!

This is Emma, our 18 month old Aussiedoodle. Yes, a COVID puppy. She is named Emma because our last name begins with “M”!
She is obsessed with a ball, or actually any round object that could maybe pass as a ball, and will bring it to you to be thrown at any time of the day or night.
She also loves the beach and goes into the water, sometimes getting her whole head wet, usually chasing the above-mentioned round object, but sometimes just for fun.
She has not met a dog or a person that she doesn’t like. She’s lots of fun.
Our very first fur babies who we had for about 15 13 years and 10 years. May they RIP from bottom left to right. Chiquita (mom), Tatiana (daughter) and Coffee (dad). Our newest fur baby Rio.
