This is Jessie — my first puppy ever! I was not ready for the cute, fuzzy puppy to grow to an 80 pound puppy that wants to be a lap dog. He does love this time of year. To watch him in the morning, with cool, crisp air to sniff, is a great start to the day. Thinking that really cold weather will be even better. Maybe this year there will even be snow!
Right now, we’re waiting for more maturity. Then the rugs can go back on the floor and not be a chew toy. Maybe even holiday cooking that can actually sit on a counter and not end up on the floor. Or in the dog’s stomach. We’ll have to wait and see.
The relationship between pets and their humans is not complicated! It is an unconditional love but this love carries a responsibility. Companion animals look to their humans to provide for their basic needs, i.e., food, water, medical care and shelter. Obviously, this is non-negotiable. Humans must not neglect any of these needs if we choose to bring a pet into our home. But this does not have any guarantee. Trust and love must be earned.
Most feel this cannot be negotiated either!
And always adopt from your local animal shelter – the rewards are endless and the trust and love given by a rescue is the best of all!!
There are so many wonderful companion animals just right for your home. Why would any potential pet parent consider another option?
We have been blessed with such individual personalities and would not have missed a second of the chaos that at one time surrounded us since we had a house full of rescues. We actively support organizations that give much time and love to all animals but several are close to our hearts. Anyone looking for unconditional love, please check out both of the following organizations: http://www.fayettefcar.com/ – Fayette County Animal Rescue and http://www.houseofmews.com/ – House of Mews
Please consider being the forever home for a loving companion, whether a youngster full of energy or a senior pet wise in the ways of the world!!
