Their Big Hearts
Holly – As a veteran dog owner, I can attest to the fact that owning dogs changes your life. Not just the added daily chores of caring for a dog, though that is true as well. It’s a much deeper feeling of love and responsibility. Responsibility of living up to your dogs idea of you. It makes you a better person, a more compassionate person.
Rae – They are filled with love that they want to share with us. Sadie leaves bones in our sneakers to remind us that she is thinking of us.
They Help All of us to Stay Calm and Bark On
They reduce stress, make us laugh and keep us moving. Long walks are good for all of us.
Our Hounds Love the Holidays
They love celebrating the holidays and participating in family traditions!
Their Exceptional Sense of Emotion
They love to see you laugh, snuggle with you when you are crying, sit at the bar with you after a long day and they always protect you from the the “buggy” man when you are home alone
The Important Life Lessons they Share
Holly – They teach you responsibility, love, compassion, friendship and a million other things. They teach you to be young again. And they unfortunately teach you about loss, as well.
Rae – They teach us to breath and enjoy the simple and beautiful parts of life.
Their Unwavering Spirit for Adventure
They can turn any trip into an exciting, memorable and photo worthy adventure
Napping is one of their favorite past times.
They are always up for a midday nap or to stay in bed when you are sick
And Bonus – Turns out they love going to the cabin as much as we do!
A Final Note from Holly –
I read a quote somewhere once, and it again changed my perspective on owning a dog. I don’t remember the exact quote word for word but it was something to the affect that dogs may be just a part of our lives, but we are their entire lives. We get up in the morning and pat their heads and go off to work. Then we have all of these experiences throughout the day and possibly sometimes don’t think of them or what they might be doing or thinking for a little bit. When we come home we rub their bellies and give them treats.
What they do between that time is anyone’s guess but I doubt they go off to a corner and completely forget about us. They spend their entire days waiting for us. Excited every time they hear a neighbors car thinking it’s us. Waiting for us to feed them or let them out.
We are everything for them. We are a scratch, a treat, an open door, a walk, a friend, a kiss and a hug. We are their survival. We are their family. And the more time I spend around my 3- the more I’m certain they are mine as well. Be the best dog owner you can be! They are only ours for a short while!
With Celebration and Dog Love,
Holly and Rae
