For this week’s post, I would like to share the importance of showing our pets gratitude and love each day. My significant other and I are proud fur parents of three beautiful dogs. We absolutely adore our dogs, and in all honesty, our dogs are like family members. Personally, my fur babies are like my children. I would do anything to make sure that they feel loved and safe; I would protect them to the best of my ability. I’m sure fellow fur parents feel the same way.
“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
Recently, one of our dogs needed to have an emergency surgery. When I heard the news, I felt like the entire world stood still. I became overwhelmed with emotions and tears because I was so afraid of the possible complications due to surgery and I felt somber for my dog. At that moment, I didn’t realize how much I absolutely adore all of my dogs. The thought of losing my dog really made me sad. However, my significant other and family members were confident and believed our dog could make it through.
With great happiness, I am happy to share that she indeed made it through her surgery, and she is beautifully recovering right now. My heart feels so overjoyed to have her here with us, and overall, this experience has made me think about how we tend to take our fur babies for granted. Sometimes, we become so busy and fail to take an extra few minutes to spend time with our pets. Whether it is a fur baby or a human, it is so important to show our gratitude and love; it is a beautiful way to show appreciation.
All of my dogs have shown me great loyalty, love, and support. Through challenging times and happy times, my dogs have always resembled the real meaning of unconditional love. Regardless of the energy in any situation, my dogs never wavered, and they are true beacons of love, wisdom, and light. In all honesty, our pets are here to teach us something, and one of the teachings is the importance of living in the present moment with unconditional love. My dogs are true inspirations and definite heroes. After my dog’s experience with surgery, she has shared the definition of strength and resilience. I am so grateful to witness such glorious characteristics.
So as we go into this new week, let us show appreciation, gratitude, and love to everyone, including our pets because we can truly learn from others. I know I learned from my dog (and all my dogs) this weekend.
In Euphoric Gratitude and Love,
