Powered by Mom and family are thankful for their Dogs!
We are a family of animal lovers so much so I don’t think we would feel complete if we didn’t have our dogs as part of our family. In fact I know we wouldn’t as when my husband and I first moved in together we didn’t have any canine family with us and we couldn’t in the apartment we lived in so we got a cat, the only pet we were allowed to have. We love our cats too but not having a dog was well weird for us.
The first house we moved into we finally got at dog, our German Shepherd Zeus who grew into a big 120lb teddy bear and was loved by all. He and our second dog Juno a Boxer/Ridgeback were both a part of our family before our daughter was born. They were there the day we brought her home from the hospital and until this day I still remember how both of them would go in and check in on her as she slept in her crib.
While our beloved Juno and Zeus are no longer with us we think of them often and feel lucky to have have two current canine family members our Blue Heeler Luna a spunky and protective girl who goes to work with my husband every day and Little Zeus (yes named after big Zeus) our 6lb Chihuahua who is the loudest of the bunch. They keep us all company and just bring joy into our lives every day we just can’t imagine life without them.
This is why I’m thankful that companies like Iams do such wonderful thngs as their #ShakeItForward program where they donate 1 bowl of food to pets in select animal shelters across the US up to 250,000 bowls! In fact they exceeded that goal and with Thanksgiving around the corner, in the continued spirit of giving they are now going to double that donation to 500,000 bowls! WOW now that truly is a giving spirit!
Before I go on check out this fun Punk’d Puppy Video HERE it was part of the inspiration for the #ShakeItForward campaign.
Don’t forget about your favorite canine family this Thanksgiving you can give them a little turkey treat too and as it so happens Iams has some yummy, soft and chewy treats for our dogs that they will love I’m sure and of course they have turkey flavor you can see them HERE
