Every dog has its day.Originally Posted by tdol
Its day = The day belongs to the dog. (no apostrophe)
no it's every dog has its day
if the dogs do not have "its" day, but some
could we use "it's day"?
You'd say 'their' for the plural.
The word "it's" is never a possessive. "It's" is a contraction of "it is" or "it has". :wink:Originally Posted by Firelord

Thank you, my reasoning exactly.
It's (it is) its (the dog's) food . Is that correct?
