Dierendag (World Animal Day)

Today it is 'Dierendag'. Teddy is getting even more attention then he would on a normal day.

World Animal Day is celebrated each year on the 4th of October. It started in Florence, Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists. The 4th of October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment.
