The mission of every pet owner is to make their pet feel as comfortable and loved as much as they can be.
Today’s story is proof of just that. It also proves just how much a simple act of kindness means to our little four-legged friends.
When one man decided that he wanted to expand his little family by adding a cute and furry member, he made his way down to his local rescue shelter.
At the shelter, he fell in love with the sweetest Golden Retriever ever. Knowing that he was the perfect fit, the man adopted him and brought him to his house.
The little pet, later named Oliver, settled into his new home as soon as he got there, knowing that he just started the best new chapter of his life.
One night, wanting his dog to feel even more of his love, the owner decided to make a bed and tuck the cute pup in.
Feeling the warmth not only from the blanket, but from the affection of his hooman as well, Oliver felt incredible.
His eyes widened and his tail wagged uncontrollably, as he was unable to control the emotions this little act stirred up in him.
This started the sweetest night routine ever.
Every night, the owner prepares Oliver for bed, tucking him in and giving him sweet little cuddles before his little trip to dreamland.
Importance Of Affection
This story does not only warm up our hearts, but it also reminds us of a very important thing.
As much as it is incredible when a person decides to adopt a pup and give him a warm roof over his head, it is also important to show them affection.
Showing just how much your pet means to you will not only strengthen your bond, but it will also help keep your dog happy and healthy.
Since dogs are incredibly social animals and love being in the company of others, they crave the attention and affection of their owners.
There are many ways to remind your pets just how dear they are to you. They can be unique, like it was with Oliver and his owner, or they can be other little things.
Some of them include conversing with your pup daily and using a kind and soft voice. You can also have playdates or go on walks or to the park.
Whatever it may be, reminding your dog how important he is will make both of your lives so much sweeter… take my word for it!
