If Pets Had Thumbs… (And a Chance to Win!)

March 3rd is If Pets Had Thumbs Day! (It’s also Rooney’s Grandma’s Birthday!)

I was just made aware of this day and I think it provides an excellent opportunity to think about what our pets would do if they had thumbs.

Here is my list of things Rooney would absolutely do if he had thumbs:

  1. Open doors so that he could run around the neighborhood and visit his friends
  2. Send love letters to his girlfriend Shasta
  3. Get treats out of the treat jar regularly
  4. Open the fridge at snack time

For a chance to win two 25lb bags of Petcureanย dog food (our favorite), leave a comment below and tell me what you think your dog would do if they had thumbs!

I can’t wait to read the entries!


 

Also, yesterday marked the end of our 20 Day Dental Health Challenge. How did it go for you?

Here are my results.

I definitely brushed Rooney’s teeth more often throughout the month. However, it was really important for me to leave the toothbrush in a location where I was easily reminded.

How did the challenge help you?

    If my dogs had thumbs, they’d open the back door and go outside whenever they want (we have gates across our driveway, so I have to be sure they are secure before letting my dogs out so having them be able to let themselves out would NOT be a good thing). As it is, they already

      I agree! Rooney having ultimate freedom would be dangerous. I am very glad that I can keep him safe.

    If my dog(s) had thumbs I would be in big trouble. I have an 8 yr old border collie/black lab and a 5 month old Pekapoo. They are the best of friends even with their difference in size. If they had thumbs, my husband I would have to move into the barn because they would be into everything!!!! We wouldn’t have a chance.

    If my dogs had thumbs they would be able to hold and eat an ice cream cone, peeling a banana. Hold the phone and text me.

    If Bentley and Pierre had thumbs they would constantly be declaring “Thumb War” on each other. “One, two, three, four, I declare a thumb war!”

    If Bella had thumbs, she would let herself out for a walk anytime she wanted to go on an outdoor adventure. If Terra had thumbs, she would get into the snack jar and fridge to eat all day! If Kronos had thumbs, he would get his toys out of the closets to play with.

    The thought of Jax with thumbs is flat out frightening. There is no limit to the things he would be into.
