About nine and a half years ago I took a 200 mile trip to a no-kill shelter to pick up a energetic, black ball of fur and I named that little terrier mix Luna. Luna has been a puppy at heart every since and she seems to have boundless energy, and I have to say I hope it stays that way. Even now as her muzzle starts to show more and more gray she will bound after squirrels or birds in our yard. Growing up, many of our pets were shelter pets or dogs people abandoned out in the country where we lived. We had some of the smartest, loving and loyal pets anyone could ask for. I remember being a teenager and coming home and the only one in the house was our family dog Nugget. She would walk around the house with me and I always felt safe since she was a large Great Dane. Nugget was stubborn, loved to eat butter right off the table, but she was playful and fiercely protective of our family. My life has been better for having My Best Friend pets in it.Of all my pets I've owned each one is unique and special to me. I can actually smile when I think about pets from my childhood and shed a tear as I miss them. Each one of my pets holds a special place in my heart, but Wolfie was really the first pet that truly belonged to me. You can read all about him on this older post Wolfie's Story. (Fair Warning: It's a tearjerker)
On this note about how much loving a pet can impact your life. I'm delighted to share with you Hallmark's latest endeavor to help shelter animals find their forever homes!
