I am thankful for the pets in our life! Our little Maltese, Sofie, came into our family about 5 years ago. About 4 years after our beloved Golden Retriever, Jenni, had died. This was a big family decision- I had endured years of 4 kids begging for a puppy - so I agreed to get a small version of a dog! Her cuteness is undeniable!! The boys love her, though Emma is the main care-giver. So when Emma called from friends house about the stray cat that desperately needed a home - I reluctantly agreed to adopt Lucky - AKA Armando, the lucky cat! We had been in negotiants regarding replacing our outside cat, Riley, who has been missing for many months.
The unconditional love and non-judgmental attitude from our pets is an instant heart-warming experience that brings comfort and joy to each one of us. Pets are an opportunity to teach kids the responsibility of caring for another life - feeding, health, its bed, exercise, attention, and so much more. We've had fish, hermit crabs, frogs (have said no the frequent request of snakes & lizards) hamsters and even a bunny. I'm most thankful for all the love being shared!
