When you’re a dog, you wait for your parent to return, the moment they leave the house. Even if it’s just to run a quick errand, for our pups, it feels like fur-ever. And of course, some days are even longer than others. What can we do to thank them for all their patience?
Give them a yard full of their favorite things, of course!
Any ball-lovin’ pooch would go puppy crazy for a fantasy moment like this, am I right? Being this “into” something has to be a good thing!
JUST LOOK AT HOW HAPPY HE IS?!
How about a yard full of “squirrels” (not live ones, no worries!). Do you think your dog would dig that?
Realistically, this isn’t something we could do for them on such a large scale and on a daily basis, but we can show them we’ve missed them too. Some hugs and kisses go a long way. And most importantly, exercise that focuses on them. A walk to the dog park where they can interact with other pups is a great way to make their day complete. A game of fetch in the yard is a great way to tire them out and show them that you care.
The hours they spend alone can be long so we have to do our best to cherish the time we are together! Because our goal is for them to be as happy as possible!
This happy! #LifeGoals
