Dear Kid,

You are not going to believe what today is.

I don't need thumbs to tell you I love you. Happy If Your Pet Had Thumbs Day. DearKidLoveMom.comHappy If Your Pet Had Thumbs Day! (Seriously.)

I took a highly scientific poll to find out what people thought their pets would do if they had thumbs.

The top responses I made up were

  • Huh?
  • I don’t know, maybe suck his thumb?
  • Where would a snake put a thumb?
  • Text, no question.
  • Serve herself more food. All day long.
  • Where do you come up with these things?

I asked the Puppy what he would do if he had thumbs. He stared at me for a minute, wagged his happy tail, and licked my feet. I thought he showed great restraint in not answering the question.

Happy If Your Pet Had Thumbs Day. (Feel free to enjoy your own thumbs today too.)

Love, Mom
