Pet Calendar

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.
