It’s no secret that we love animals and share our home with 3 wonderful bundles of fur — Skye, Bella, and Mookie.
I don’t think I’ve ever went without some type of pet at any point in my life. When I was growing up my mom always had a cat, a dog or both — even a bird and fish tanks at one point. And so my love of animals grew and hasn’t ever ceased.
Cats and dogs are like therapy to me. Their love is never ending. They listen when you need a shoulder to cry on, or just need someone to be there for you. They comfort you when you’re sick (they seem to sense it), and they’re happy when you’re happy. They also seem to know when you need some cheering up because they’re always doing silly things just to make me laugh.
Skye, our 6 pound “powder puff” Pomeranian girlie typically favors my hubby out of everyone in our home but when I’m stressed, she’s there, right by my side to calm me and let me know that everything’s going to be alright.

Yes, she likes to dress up.
Our pets are family members, well, to be truthful, they’re our best friends. We can always count on them just as much as they count on us for their needs. With pets it’s a win-win situation. The only bad thing about having a pet such as a kitty or doggie is…. unfortunately they don’t live forever. Parting is extremely hard but throughout their short lives, they give us much joy and SO much love. I can’t imagine life without them!

She’s SO tough and scary!
Many people rely on service dogs to help them with their daily lives. People with disabilities such as the visually impaired can get to their destinations more easily and safely thanks to a ‘working dog’ and others with physical ailments have more fulfilling lives thanks to therapy dogs. It’s amazing how intelligent, eager to please and loyal dogs are.
Cesar believes that a relationship with a dog can truly improve and enrich every life, including people in need. Dogs are capable of lowering stress, anxiety, and even blood pressure. And that’s why they created the Share a Story, Share the Love social media campaign — to encourage dog lovers to share their heartwarming stories of therapy dogs through their social media pages on Facebook and Twitter.
In return, Cesar is sharing the love with three therapy dog organizations through donations that help continue the services they provide to people in need.
Pomeranian’s always appear to be smiling — you can’t help but smile back!
