I've always wondered where the phrase - For the Love of Pete - comes from. Today is Pete's day. Who is he? And why should we do something simply for his sake?
Spay Day might not be so much a holiday as a day of awareness promoted by The Humane Society. Thousands of kittens and puppies are born each year and many don't have loving homes. Instead of letting the animal population boom, why not spay your pet. I like the Humane Society's motto for the day: It's not just rabbits who multiply like rabbits.
