Realtor - Amanda S. Davidson: Thankful Thoughts – 4 Legged Fur Children

Thankful Thoughts – 4 Legged Fur Children

Thankful Thoughts – 4 Legged Fur Children

I love the Thankful Challenge Debbie Reynolds is hosting. It adds more warmth and love to the Rain than there already is. Work has been extra busy for this time of the season so I’m late to the party to write my own posts but, I really can’t say enough just how much I’ve enjoyed reading others posts.

Walter and Elvis 

It’s no secret that I absolutely adore our dogs or as we look at them, our fur children. They complete our little family and bring us so much joy. I’ve been around animals all my life and really can’t imagine not having at least one dog. Walter is the first dog that was solely mine, before him it was always family pets that I’d had in my life. It was just me and Walter for many years and in August 2014 I brought Brinks home, he was a tiny little puppy and Walt graciously accepted him. Shortly after that Paul and I started dating. Walter is the kindest dog I’ve ever known and while he was always a gentleman to Paul it took a few months for him to really warm up to him. I think he was making sure that Paul had the right intentions J

Walter and Brinks 

Last November we brought Elvis home and once again Walter was a complete gentleman and very accepting of another tiny little pup. Brinks, on the other hand, wasn’t convinced we needed to add to the family. It took him about a month to really accept that Elvis was staying. They always make us laugh because they truly act like brothers. They love each other but, at the same time regularly get on each other’s nerves. It’s very entertaining to watch them interact. There isn’t a day that I come home that I don’t look forward to seeing them all come out to greet me at the car. Pets give so much love and never expect anything in return. I’m thankful for all of our sweet pups. 

 

Walter, Brinks, Elvis

I have a "fur baby" also and he brings us great joy and laughter, except  when he's chewed a total of 16 dog beds, 2 comforters, 1 sofa, and countless sheets ripped. He finally outgrew it (I think). I doubt very few people would put up with all that, but he is loved by us.

Hi Amanda S. Davidson, I can't imagine my home without my fur babies.  I'm seriously thinking about adopting another one, your post just convinced me I must.
Your fur children are adorable!

Oh, what a wonderfully accepting fur baby that Walter is, welcoming his adopted siblings into 'his' home so graciously! I love how he and the little ones snuggle - how precious!

Like you, Amanda, I can't imagine my life without our fur babies - they bring such joy into our lives!

That pic of the BIG pup and LITTLE pup lying together is just so heartwarming, Amanda Christiansen ... I love it!  It speaks volumes.  We just gained a grand-furbaby pup. I so get why you love all your fur babies!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your furry family members,

Gene

Beth Atalay oh I hope that you do! I always want to adopt more. If I ever win the lottery I've got so many plans for fur babies. Any animal that has you for their Mommy is so blessed.

Posted by Amanda S. Davidson, Alexandria Virginia Homes For Sale (Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group) 28 days ago

Grant Schneider I decided to get a bigger turkey breast with them in mind. They will not be missing out on any of it in this household :)

Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi enjoy your grand-furbaby! Something tells me you'll spoil him/her for the holidays! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Amanda S. Davidson - You have a lovely fur-family! They are adorable! That was pretty funny to learn that Walter had to approve Paul and I'm glad he did!

Little Elvis and Brink are just perfect additions to your already growing family. I can't wait for you to get married to find out what's next? I know life is going to be good for ALL of you!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI thank you! Paul had to earn his place haha. XO

Posted by Amanda S. Davidson, Alexandria Virginia Homes For Sale (Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group) 27 days ago

Amanda S. Davidson - LOL! That's funny. You remind me of an old boyfriend my daughter had when she was away at the University. Her cat didn't like him and my daughter had a heck of time. Finally, she had to make a choice. Keep the cat or keep the boyfriend. She kept the cat - LOL! 

I'm glad to hear Paul and Walter worked things out! XO

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) 27 days ago

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI I am cracking up at my computer screen! LOL. Your daughter is one smart lady and my kind of person. I'm glad they did too because Paul would have been out if I had to choose =) 

Posted by Amanda S. Davidson, Alexandria Virginia Homes For Sale (Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group) 27 days ago

Amanda S. Davidson - Wise Women Rule!!! I'm happy to hear you had a good laugh today!  And even happier to know you didn't have to choose between Paul & Walter. LOL

Amanda, it sounds like Walter is a good judge of character.  Got to love the fur babies.

Posted by Mike Cooper, Your Winchester, VA Real Estate Sales Pro (Cornerstone Business Group Inc) 27 days ago

Such cuties, Amanda. Are they are all short haired? I love the variety and how they all get along as family.

Debbie Reynolds they are, the two little ones shed a little bit but, Walter the big one really doesn't shed much at all. Have a great Sunday!

Posted by Amanda S. Davidson, Alexandria Virginia Homes For Sale (Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group) 24 days ago

This challenge has been so fun to read. I have read a lot of the thankful posts and a great deal of them are about our pets! I love these ones (and wrote one myself). Love your photos, Amanda! -K
