My Labrador Retriever is my first dog and she’s been a part of my life for four years now. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while it probably isn’t hard to tell that my dog and pets in general are important to me.
Since I’m stuck at home quite a bit with my illness (Crohn’s disease) my dog has become quite an important companion. I know she’s a pet, but she’s also part of my family, so it makes sense for us to keep her as healthy and happy as possible so we’ll have many years together – right?
Midnight was a sickly puppy when we got her so her care began with a lot of veterinarian visits and only the best pet foods. She also got a lot of love and tender care. Once she started to become healthy we started to train her and we quickly found out how smart our Lab was and how much she loves to learn. Our dog can be shown something only once or twice and she knows it. It’s almost scary how quick she learns things.
Is your dog a happy healthy part of your family? Do you devote some time caring for your pet in order to keep him or her healthy and happy?
This is our dog Midnight on a recent hiking trip in a local off leash park. As you can see she looks pretty healthy and happy.
