This year especially I have a lot to be thankful for. I have an amazing new veterinary clinic and an incredible staff of dedicated, hard working people. I am endlessly thankful for the support of my family who sometimes get the short end of my time. And of course I am humbled and grateful for the constant support of my friends and clients.
Sometimes being thankful is more than words, sometimes it is taking the time to appreciate the soft purr of the kitty on your lap, or the gentle nuzzle of the pooch by your side. If you look into their eyes you can see that they want nothing more than to be with you and make you happy (that is of course after they have been fed, walked and played with - lol). Pets bring more than responsibility to our lives, they bring a sense of belonging, a sense of calmness and ultimately unconditional love. I am THANKFUL for the blessings pets bring to my life.
So this season take a few minutes out of your crazy schedule to sit down and spend a few minutes with your 4 legged friend. You will be glad you did.
