As we enter the holiday season, it seems we always take extra time to reflect the things we're most thankful for in life and compile our memories of the past year. This month, Chewy.com sent out treats to show our pets that we're "Thankful for You."
As I reflect on my past year, I'm thankful for the love of my life, and father of my son to have recovered so quickly from his stroke and be able to return to his passion of driving truck and be able to continue his long and active life with his family. I'm thankful for the son we were able to have together - after accepting we would be unable to have children, Gabe nears his 4th birthday (in January 2015). I'm thankful for Venus, our first baby who brightens up every day and is a constant reminder of unconditional love. As I experienced my first loss of a pet, I am also thankful for Ocean. Our sweet baby girl only spent just over a year with us, but the love we shared with her was unlike any other. She was never too tired to cuddle with Jer or I, and even spent a lot of time with Gabe (something Venus will rarely do). Ocean was the family pet we had always dreamed of who never barked, always wanted to cuddle, and always showed her love for those around her. I am so grateful for the short time she was able to spend with us, and our hearts will always be filled with the conflicting pain from her passing and joy from her companionship.
This Thanksgiving, show you're pets you're thankful for them.
Chewy.com sent us new Soft Savories from Science Diet to share with Venus this Thanksgiving, and boy do we know what she's thankful for right now...
The founder of Hill's Pet Nutrition, Dr. Mark Morris Sr., was one of the first veterinarians to understand the connection between food and companion animal health. In 1939, he developed breakthrough pet nutrition to improve the health of a Seeing Eye dog named Buddy. Seventy years later, they continue to follow the example. Hill’s pet foods are made in their own U.S. facilities with ingredients from North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, which exceed industry standards for purity and nutrient content. Now with this new line of treats you have 3 great options for your fur babies such as, Beef and Cheddar, Chicken and Yogurt and the yummiest sounding one, Peanut Butter and Banana, YUM!Venus received Science Diet Soft Savories in the flavor Beef and Cheddar. Despite the name, these treats are actually pretty hard. They smell like real beef and cheddar, which beckons Venus every time I open the bag.
Made without corn, artificial colors, artificial flavors, or preservatives - Hill's Science Diet Soft Savories are the perfect treat for any poochy pal during Thanksgiving, or any time of year!
