Get ready when you get back to work Monday to be swamped by pet pictures all over the internet and social media. Monday, July 11th is All American Pet Photo Day. That's right there is a day set aside to take photos of your pets. It doesn't matter if you have a fish, a bird, a lizard, or even a snake we are all encouraged to snap a picture of our pet on Monday.

Then Monday get serious with making a photo montage that you can share not only at work but with the world on all your social media platforms.
