My closest friends still can’t believe I got a dog three months ago. In fact, I can’t believe I got a dog. And I’d love to say “it was for the kids,” but it’s soooo not true! I absolutely needed my side by side buddy, who loves to nap at my feet while I work and who greets me like no body’s business when I get home. It’s so special to also see the bond my kids and husband have with our li’l love bug, too.
What started out as an innocent trip to see an influx of Beagles at our local animal shelter, ended up with me filling out an application and meeting with a dog counselor just so we could pet the dogs! After we were told we weren’t a fit for the puppies we were hoping to just give some love to that day, the counselor told us that she had just the dog for us.
After meeting Hani, who was flown in from a shelter in Kauai (our family’s favorite vacation spot), we were instantly licked and loved. There was no doubt Hani would be coming home with us.
Naturally, this heartfelt video below by IAMS really struck a chord with me [READ: made me cry!]. I’m so grateful for that fateful day at the dog shelter and look forward to many special memories ahead with Hani, who is officially a member of our family.
Bringing attention to the need for healthy nutrition for Mama’s best friend, IAMS says about the video: “Some bonds are truly unbreakable. Like the one between a boy and his dog Duck. To keep him healthy and active at every stage of life, there’s IAMS. Ideal nutrition so you can always look forward to what’s next.”
