Whoever created ‘National Love Your Pet Day’ is a genius! I don’t know about you, but the pets in my life have made a huge difference in my happiness level.
Emma hugging Maggie.. so sweet. Of course we are working hard in or ‘office’ ;)
Never far from Jeff…
Last year, we were so fortunate to be able to adopt Maggie from The Cavalier Rescue USA Organization. She has been the light in our lives that we never realized we were missing. After our previous cavalier, Cal, passed away two years ago – we always knew we would adopt again but we didn’t have a set date in mind. Things work out the way they should as they say… Meeting Maggie changed our lives forever. Click here to read more about Maggie’s adoption story.
Maggie’s personality is just the sweetest – she’s a little nervous when meeting someone new, but after a few minutes of interacting she always becomes your biggest fan. She loves a warm lap, cuddling against Jeff and Emma, and going for long walks on the beach. ;) (Lol.. But seriously, she appreciates every little moment because now she gets to live life to the fullest!)
We spoil Maggie as often as we can in a multitude of ways. She pre-packaged fresh food that is cooked and delivered every two weeks, monthly grooming appt’s with the sweetest portable groomer who comes to our home, and she sleeps right next to us every night.. unless of course Emma is visiting. I know who comes first in Maggie’s eyes. ;)
We began using The Farmer’s Dog recently after they reached out to me. I was thrilled because I wasn’t aware that there are specialty pet food companies who sell pre-packed fresh food made with vitamins, etc. specifically for dogs. Maggie is obsessed with it and if you have ever watched any of my stories, then you already know how she “dances” and howls for her food. (She does this all on her own.. so cute!)

MacKenzie-Childs is so sweet. I collaborate with them often because I love their beautiful hand-painted products. The other day, I received a huge package in the mail that I wasn’t expecting – and it was full goodies just for Maggie! Included were two gorgeous enamel dog bowls, a leash (which is on sale for 50% off!), dog collar, placemat, and travel dog bed. They included a note that wished Maggie a Happy National “Love Your Pet” Day.. it was so thoughtful of them! (This isn’t sponsored, just wanted to celebrate the kindness of others). I may be hosting a little giveaway with a couple of these items – so make sure to look for that in my stories soon.
How do you celebrate your pet? Tell me a quick sweet story about why you love your pet so much in the comments below! I honestly don’t know where we would be without Maggie’s love.
