My mom has been beyond herself with worry since I got hurt on Wednesday, good grief! I know she loves me, but my oh my, I am really feeling the love the past couple of days. Right now she is getting on my nerves, so I am going to allow her to say a few things on my blog!!
Thank you Higgins. I was asked by PAL to talk about being a pet parent and who knew almost four years ago when Higgins made his appearance in our home, he would forever hold a piece of my heart. Certainly not me!
I remember the day our middle son brought Higgins home. He went to volunteer at a animal shelter but did way more than just volunteer. At first, I was not a happy camper that he showed up back home with a little white fur ball in hand. I remember telling him volunteering and bringing home animals are two different things! HA!
It didn’t take long for Higgins to claim me as his favorite and his first night in our home, he snored very happily and very peacefully right between me and my hubby in bed. At that point I knew, I was an official dog mom!!
The next four years that have followed, Higgins has brought so much joy and laughter into our home, I can say, he is more like a son than a pet!
When he got hurt on Wednesday I turned into a crazy parent trying my hardest to hold back the tears at the vet office, yep, again a crazy pet mom! Higgins has added so much to our life, it was so hard to see him in pain and worry about what would happen next. Of course, the news was not the greatest, but it could have been so much worse. The good news, he is healing greatly, so two weeks of crate rest is very doable (shhhh, don’t tell Higgins I said that)!
I know that many that read Higgins blog are already pet parents but if you would like more information on the joys pets can add to your life, please visit the PAL Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/PetsAddLife.
I have the awesome opportunity to join with Pets Add Life campaign and this post is sponsored by the Pets Add Life campaign and the American Pet Products Association. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the benefits and joys of pet ownership.
Higgins here again! Who knew my mom was so smitten with me! Thanks mom for saying all those sweet things, I think you are pretty awesome too!
