Be Inspired By The Love Of Your Dog

Today we are thankful and inspired by the human-animal bond and celebrating the love of your dog.

We have seen so many recent examples of dogs doing extraordinary things for their people and people doing extraordinary things inspired by the love of their dogs.

  • Awww, sweet post! Dog love is unconditional and unmatched!

  • Those cards are so cute, and what a great idea! My pets inspire me every day!

  • Love the cards!

  • I especially like that photo of Kilo holding a rose in his mouth. I wonder if I could get Mr. N to hold a flower in his mouth.

    • Profile photo of Talent Hounds

      LOL no need with our new app-Kilo will now hold things but he was not too keen on holding the rose. Added in the card LOL

  • Oh how cute!! I love this! My pets have, and do, inspire me to be a better person. Watching, and feeling, their true unconditional love and devotion is truly inspirational!

  • I celebrate the love of my dogs by continuing to serve on the board of the rescue where I got Piper (my newest dog and my first foster failure) and by trying to raise awareness around ending BSL and encouraging people to foster and adopt whenever possible.

  • There is nothing like the love of a dog which I so appreciate and make sure she knows too

  • The cards are so cute! I hope you’ll share tons of photos from Woofstock, it sound like it will be a lot of fun!

  • I really like the cards and am always searching for good “software” packages to make special cards.

  • My love for Wynston is the reason I started blogging. And my dog’s never ending, unconditional love is the reason I’m a full time blogger! It keeps me going 🙂 I’m glad you had a good time at the Purina Hall of Fame Awards!

  • Love the cards!! Look at all the happy!

  • These events sound like a lot of fun. I will have to enter the photo contest if they allow cats (or honorary dogs that happen to look a lot like cats LOL). I love that people are taking so much time to honor the relationship they have with their pets these days. 🙂

  • I celebrate their love every day. How can you not? Great post- the cards are really cute!

  • How cute!! Great post! I love the cards 🙂

  • Those cards are so precious. I am excited to see you soon at BlogPaws, too!

  • These are great cards, Kilo looks adorable! Wonderful contest! I’m a huge believer in the Human Animal Bond, I see it clearly in the therapy dog visits with my Husky, Icy. We show our love for our dogs by doing nearly everything with them from hiking to cafe-ing to vacationing with them. They are our family!
