If you’re like me, you’re tired of missing the boat on special events, like National Puppy Day [March 23rd] and National Squirrel Appreciation Day [January 21st].

But never again! 

I have discovered a secret font of information that tells me all the special animal-themed days of each month, and — best of all — I’m going to share it with you!

At the beginning of each month, I will give you the run-down of the special days that a powerful shadow government, staffed entirely by animals, has voted into existence. Then, you can mark your calendar and plan accordingly.

Here, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association — also staffed by animals — is the list of Pet Health Awareness Events for April 2016 [I’m especially looking forward to April 29th!]:
