When it comes to pets the most important thing is ADOPT DON’T SHOP! Christmas is a time where families are often given puppies or kittens as gifts. This is all fine and dandy until they grow up, most families don’t prepare for the responsibility and unfortunately they end up at the local shelter. That is where you come in, adopt don’t shop!
I have so many fur babies and I love them all so much. Most of them have been adopted from the Miami Dade Animal Shelter or Out Reach centers. At my home I have 2 dogs and a cat. At my boyfriends home he has 2 dogs. Like I said lot’s of fur babies! They are so happy to be adopted and feel right at home !
Let me introduce you to my crew ! Starting with the newest additon Sherrwood.
Meet Sherwood. He is a Goldendoodle, currently staying with my boyfriends family. He is a beautiful puppy, who loves to play. As seen above he loves tenis balls. He is so smart and cuddly. Just look at those curls! You can say it was love at first tail wag.
Next up is my forever puppy.
Meet Nana. This beautiful cockerspaniel keeps boyfriends abuela(grandmother) company at home. We call her a forever puppy because she stayed the same size she never grew up! We named her after the dog in Peter Pan, Nana. I know dogs are not supposed to eat popsicles but who could say no to this cutie?
Next up is Reeses, a true rescue story.
Reeses was rescues from Miamia Dade Animal Services right before Christmas in 2010 by myself as a Christmas gift for my brother as he always wanted a German Sheppard. As I brought her home we noticed she was sick we took her to 3 different vets that told us she was terminal and we had to put her down. I refused to listen and put down a dog on Christmas so I went back to the Shelter and there they were able to help bring her back to health. Here we are years later and she’s happy healthy and riding in the back of my brothers truck. She sleeps in my brothers room and will not leave his side
Then we got the oldest of the bunch, Coco.
Yeah that’s the only picture I can get of her. She’s old but still fiesty. A jack russell that we have had for about 14 years now. She has been the most fun and the most unpredictable dog. She can surf in our pool. She can also tear apart lizzard in half a minute if you let her. In her prime age she would swim and chase you down the pool. Even in her old age she chills out with my cat Bruce and Reeses.
Last but not least Master Bruce Wayne.
The Lion in my bedroom. Master Bruce Wayne, named after of course Batman. He lives with me in my bedroom. He is my first cat, it’s a learning experience, and I love him. He has helped me so much with my anxiety I cannot beging to explain it. He is weird like me I guess. Always remember cats do not abide by the laws of nature( if you catch that reference you are totally awesome).
All my animals are amazing. I have been lucky to be able to adopt these wonderful animals. I encourage you to do the same. It will not only save the life of an animalin need it will give so much more to your life. I can’t imagine my life with out these guys in it. They make day to day life happier one tail wag or purrrr at a time.
