I love dogs. I have always had one in my life and I am glad that we were able to get a dog so that my kids can grow up with the same experiences. We were blessed to find two beautiful yellow labs. They were only 8 weeks old when we got them, and when we picked them up we thought we had a boy and a girl. I love the Twilight series and so we were joking about naming them Bella and Edward or Bella and Jacob. Jake ended up sticking to my dog – I loved it. My husband thought we were getting a girl and ended up with another boy – so we decided to go with something different all together for him and named him Luke. Luke and Jake – we loved it. Although half the time we called them Juke and Lake – lol.
They were cute, fun and very playful. We loved having them. As time went on, I realized that maybe two dogs was to much for me, especially when my sister (who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer) came to live with us, so we had to part with Luke. It was a little heartbreaking but a good decision for our family. Jake is mellow and patient with our kids. We couldn’t have asked for a better dog as a pet for our family. Him and our cat Mr. Fuzz are cute together and I love that we have them as part of our family. Since we have 4 girls and 2 boys – my kids often joke that Jake and Fuzz make up the numbers so there are 4 boys and 4 girls.
I love this video that IAMS™ did about a Boy and his dog Duck. It is so perfect and totally explains how sweet and affectionate and part of the family our dog is in ours as well. It is a beautiful story about how the dog got its unusual name of Duck, and I love how the parents let it roll. It’s perfect. Another important factor is what you feed your dog good quality food that will keep them healthy and active throughout their lives. IAMS™ dog food has noticeably better nutrition that will provide your pets with that. We all want our dogs to be youthful and vibrant throughout their lives. This movie provides an opportunity to celebrate the meaningful connections and stories that come from the long-term relationships people have with their pets.
