As people who care for animals, you never want to make posts like these. But as every pet owner knows, this comes with the territory. Pets bring such amazing companionship, comfort, and fulfillment to peoples lives and they require so little in return for those amazing blessings; they are truly gifts to the world. I think one of the forgotten aspects of pet ownership is how your animal companion measures time passing in your life. Because they’re on a shorter schedule then we are, they serve as time capsules that visibly mark the days and years going by. Hutson was one of the first dogs I walked with Home Treat Home, and he’s always been a delight. He lived a long happy life full of belly rubs, long walks, fine food and drink (he loved semi frozen vegetable medleys), and a wonderful owner. Here’s to you buddy. Rest easy.
