Instead of hitting the mall the Friday after Thanksgiving (also known as Black Friday), why don’t you stay home or hit the park with your pet? We affectionately refer to this day as #PetFriday, which we declared back in 2015, after being inspired by REI’s #OptOutside campaign.
So what will you do with your best pal? Eat Thanksgiving leftovers? Hit the trails? Watch The Crown? Read a good book? Whatever you do, it will surely be less stressful than watching a fight break out over the last deeply discounted TV!
And if you happen to think about it, share a photo on social media with #PetFriday. (And if you happen to be too in the moment to pick up your phone, well that works too!)
The holidays can be a stressful time, so if you’re able to, unwind with your pet before chaos ensues.
