The Best Thing in the World

Today is my day to talk about my favorite thing in the world. The thing that brings a smile to my face, warms my heart, and covers me in wet sloppy kisses every day.

And I couldn’t be more thankful for him.

Today I am thankful for Man’s (or woman’s) Best Friend. Our furry, four legged, love machines, dogs.

I come to you as a convert. Once a proclaimed “cat person” I never thought I would grow to love any creature as much as I love my Gunner.

There is something about raising a dog from a puppy, learning and growing with them, that leads to a bond I cannot describe.

No matter how my day went, what’s going on in the world, or how bad I look, he’s there with an approving grin and a wagging tail.

He knows just when to snuggle up to me. He knows how to make me laugh. He knows how to push my buttons, but then be so cute I can’t be mad.

I could not live without my dog. Period. It hurts my heart to think of him growing old and departing this world long before I am ready for him to go.

So today I am thankful for him. Thankful for the time I have had with him so far in this short year and a half and thankful for the many years to come, with my best friend.

What are you most thankful for?

  1. Oh girl. YES. This.

    I tear up every time I think about how short of time they are.

    But on a positive note, a dog's love is like none other. So happy to have little pooches in my life.

  2. This is the best post ever. I too am a convert... Not from cats but I didn't want any pets period. Luckily my husband convinced me because she's my favorite. I love the color of your dog-so pretty! And that picture with the tongue out the side of his mouth- my favorite dog face in the world.

  3. I can't even stand how cute he is!! & that picture of him and your cat?! Omg, I seriously need that life. I'm showing my boyfriend immediately so he can get on board haha. Goldens are just the way to go every time. Our pets really are some of our biggest joys in life.

  4. OMG he is SOOOO cute! I can't wait to have a house with a yard so we can finally get a dog :)
