Love Your Pet Day

Love Your Pet Day

Today is “Love Your Pet Day”! In celebration of the day, I am sharing just a little bit about my furry love, Cody. Here’s one of my favorite recent pictures of him – riding shotgun with Richard. Taking a ride in our SUV is his favorite thing to do – other than playing in the snow. You would never know it by his spry and friendly personality, like most goldens, but next month he will be 15 years old! In a lot of ways, he’s the center of our family and I am so very thankful for him and the lessons he’s taught us; said better by an unknown author…

If A Dog Were Your Teacher

You would learn stuff like…

* When loved ones come home, always run to greet them

* Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride

* Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy

* When it’s in your best interest – practice obedience

* Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory

* Take naps and stretch before rising

* Run, romp and play daily

* Thrive on attention and let people touch you

* Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do

* On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass

* On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree

* When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body

* Delight in the simple joy of a long walk

* Eat with gusto and enthusiasm; stop when you have had enough

* Be loyal and loving

* If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it

* When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently

My furbaby, Cody, has taught us all of this and much more. We are so blessed to have him part of our family. I’m going to celebrate Cody today by making him one of his favorite homemade doggie treats, (Here’s his cheesey favorite – we use cheddar:

Also going to get him a goodie from:

Do you have any pets? If so, share them with us! If not, share what kind of pet you would have if you could have one and why.
