We own a 15-year-old Cocker Spaniel. He’s the best dog in the world. Until we adopted him, I wasn’t a dog person. That’s all changed. I absolutely love dogs.
I used to be a cat person. Now I think cats are okay. I still like to play with kittens. But my concept of the ideal pet has totally shifted.
Unfortunately, our aging pup will not be around with us forever. Right now, we treasure our time with him. Every day is a gift. We do everything in our power to keep him healthy. He’s on a grain-free diet. We give him the appropriate homeopathic remedies to support his body. We use pure natural essential oils in his ears, instead of a popular pharmaceutical that contains steroids.
Flea control has always been chemical free. Last summer we applied a little geranium essential oil on his collar. I did this after I noticed two large ticks on his face. These pests didn’t bother him for the rest of the summer. Next summer we plan to use the same approach. (He’s doing very well right now. So we’re planning ahead. However, always check with a vet before using essential oils on a dog. Do not use them on cats.)
Still, despite our best efforts, I know our beloved pet won’t be with us forever. That’s why, last year, I decided to get my husband a personalized blanket, with a photo of Buddy. My husband is very attached to our dog. He’ll treasure this for many years to come.
