Thankful For Our Fur Babies

Thankful For Our Fur Babies

As soon as I read Debbie Reynolds 12 Days of Thanks Giving 2017 – ActiveRain Challenge I knew I wanted to participate and thought of ideas to write about. I wish I could do all 12 days but, we welcomed a new fur baby into our home a few days ago and at 8 weeks old he’s a full time job on top of real estate. I wouldn’t change it for the world though.

 

Walter is our oldest and I adopted him over 10 years ago. It was just the two of us for years. Growing up with animals I knew I wanted a dog as soon as my schedule permitted and about a month after leaving the corporate world and becoming a loan officer Walter came into my life. It took about a year to rehab him after being the bait dog in a fighting ring. He had severe separation anxiety but, is living proof that love cures all. The gentlest soul you’d ever want to meet. He’s a constant reminder to me to show kindness.

Brinks joined us in August 2014 at 8 weeks old. My parents had a friend that lost a dog in a tragic accident and was looking for a French Bulldog. I was helping look and found him, she didn’t feel comfortable having a dog she’d never met. I was already in love from seeing him online and my Mom and I flew to Iowa to get him. He’s an emotional little guy and has no problem telling you how he’s feeling. He has a sound for every mood. He and Walter are the best of friends.

And now we have Elvis, another French Bulldog. We just got him a few days ago. I wasn’t completely ready to dive into sleepless nights with a puppy again but, at somewhere around 16-17 Walter is getting very old and we feared that when we lose him Brinks will be alone. He’s been with Walt since the day we brought him home and if we can ease his grief just a little by having another friend around that’s what we wanted to do. He’s a sweet little guy and already making himself at home.

I can’t imagine not having animals, they provide so much joy and even on a bad day I’m grateful for them. If I ever win the lottery one of the first things I want to do is start a rescue. There are far too many loving animals without homes.
