National Let’s Laugh Day

March 19th is National Let’s Laugh Day!

Let’s be honest, laughter should be a part of EVERYDAY, not just something we celebrate once a year.  Laughing has been proven to decrease stress and release endorphins- the body’s natural feel-good chemicals.  Who doesn’t want to laugh and be happy all the time?  Research has shown that we typically laugh more when we are with our friends and family, rather than by ourselves.  Because we treat animals like companions or friends, it only makes sense that we laugh with them too!  Take today as a special opportunity to laugh and spend some quality time with your furry best friend.

3 Ways To Celebrate

1. Watch funny animal videos

Whether it’s a cat playing in a cardboard box, a dog missing a ball, or a parrot copying something funny her owner said, animal videos are a hilarious way to get your giggle on.  You can find hundreds of goofy animal videos on Youtube.

2. Create an opportunity to laugh

Play with your cat or dog and see what funny things they do.  Animals are unpredictable and playful by nature, so you never know what silly thing they might do next.  If you don’t have a furry friend of your own, visit your local animal shelter.  You’ll get a good laugh playing with the animals, and the animals will LOVE that you came by to see them!

3. Look at funny pictures of animals on google

We suggest photos of animals dressed up in costumes or making funny faces.  Here are a couple of our favorites:
