Love Your Pet Day

Happy Love Your Pet Day!

Of course, we love our pets every day, but on February 20th, it’s official: Love Your Pet Day! The characters on your favorite INSP shows sure do love their pets—from tail-wagging, fluffy dogs to grunting, gritty pigs. Why, the Walton family pets alone could fill a book of the who’s who of the animal kingdom!

Let’s take a look at some of the critters that have strutted, waddled, galloped or slinked across your TV screen


Rover, not a name you’d expect for Jim-Bob Walton’s peacock.
