National Pet Day: April 11

April 11th, 2024 · No Comments · Books, Main Branch

Did you know that today is National Pet Day? A recent survey conducted by PetMD (Chewy), The 8 Most Popular Pets in 2023, found that most Americans–not surprisingly–favor dogs and cats, with dogs edging out cats 65.1% to 46.5%. A distant third place goes to freshwater fish, coming in at 11.1%. What about you? Are you more of a dog person or a cat person? Or something else? Myself, I love dogs. I thought it would be fun to create a Periodic Table of Dogs and Cats, following the same idea as the Periodic Table of Elements in chemistry. Like the original table there are rows and columns, with categories like popular names, smartest breeds, fictional dogs and cats from children’s books, comics/cartoons and Disney, National Dog Show Groups and different breeds. Come check out our National Pet Day display at the library, and see if your dog or cat breed is the smartest or has a popular name. Did your favorite fictionalized furry friend make it on the table, come find out? We hope to see you soon.
