How Did it Start?

National Pet Memorial Day was started by The International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Cremoratories as a special day to honor the lives and loss of our littlest BFFs who have passed on. It always falls on the second Sunday of September and is time where you can reflect on everything that you loved about your pets and what they have added to your life.

In another 50 or 100 years, we will probably be using the same excuse for something else.

Wait till you are 12. Seriously. I dated a guy in fifth grade for about a month, and then I found out the turd effect. Date anyone while you are  still about 11, your relationships will SUCK.
