On April 14th my Oakland Athletics are hosting the Detroit Tigers and having their yearly Pet Calendar and Pet Adoption Day. Sure, it SOUNDS harmless enough, but I have mixed feelings.
I often used to participate in this day, but it always led to heartbreak.
I LOVED my last pet calendar, but sadly it expired just one year after I adopted it.
Every day after I took it for a walk, it looked a little more tired and ragged. As each month passed, my pet calendar got thinner and thinner.
Finally I could see the writing on the wall.
...But I suppose I should have known: every pet calendar's days are numbered.
