I loved sharing how we brought home our Golden in this sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Purina® ProPlan® . The opinions and text are all mine.
This is our dog Sandy just after we first brought her home. I hadn’t planned on being a dog owner at that point in my life. “I’m raising children!” I kept saying. But we were visiting my parents and my husband had gone out to feed some animals with my dad. When my husband got back he was so excited. “Your dad has this beautiful Golden Retriever and it sounds like he might want to give her to us.” He was in love with her already. You know he didn’t have to talk the kids into her!
There was one problem, however, we weren’t planning on going straight home. We had a trip to Sea World planned. Well with a little research, we found out that Sea World had a free kennel, and we found a hotel that allowed dogs. It was meant to be! The trip to San Antonio though was anything but pleasant. We had to stop every little while and Sandy wasn’t the most cooperative. Put that together with four kids and arriving at our hotel after midnight…I’ve had better days!
But most things that are worth having are a little work are they not? Sandy was about six months old when we brought her home. She has been such a joy to all of us. I can’t imagine a more perfect dog for a house full of kids. Sandy is so sweet tempered that I’ve almost forgiven her for all the things she chewed up as a puppy! 🙂
