I'm not sure if you can feel the love coming through the picture above. River was 10 weeks old here, only having lived with me for two weeks. My brand new, magical rainbow unicorn puppy had just arrived, and we were forming our bond. In this picture, she is reaching her little tiny snoot (nose) up towards my hand, and I am gently caressing her between the eyes. She wanted nothing more than to be near to me, all the time, and I'm happy to say that it's still the case today.
We all love our dogs. Well, if you're reading my blog, I'm pretty confident that you love your dog. We want them to be happy, to be healthy, and to love us back. Yet, with all the information out there, we can sometimes make mistakes and harm our relationship with our dog. I feel so strongly about this that I wanted to devote an entire blog post to the subject.
If there's one thing I wish the whole world knew and practiced with their dogs, it would be this: advocate for your dog.
What does that even mean?
Why is that SO important?
Why am I so impassioned about it?
