I don’t need National Pet Week to appreciate the joy that Tiger Lilly brings to my life.
According to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (which runs the shelter where we found our baby girl), the goals of National Pet Week are to promote responsible pet ownership, celebrate the human-animal bond, and promote public awareness of veterinary medicine. You can learn more at the National Pet Week website.
Tiger Lilly makes me smile every day. If I have to pick one thing to tell you about her, it is her insatiable appetite for walks.
Her tail starts wagging in anticipation of her morning walk as soon as my alarm goes off.
Are you ready to go yet?
She tries to help by bringing me my shoes.
(She hasn’t quite learned the difference between dress shoes and dog walking shoes.)
When I work at home, she gets excited every time I get up from my computer,
refill my water bottle, or take a step towards the front door.
She waits patiently, but her pitiful face tells me it’s time for a walk break!
Do you have a pet?
