Tucker and I have the same sentiments about Mondays. It is not our favorite day of the week at all!
But on Mondays. we find ourselves dragging out of the bed, heading into the kitchen for some coffee and bacon, and then getting our day started.
Tucker has been my rescue baby for 8 years. He was 6 months old when we got him, and ever since that day, he has been by my side– literally — for as long as I can remember.
Where ever I am in the house, he is right there.
You see, I am a rescuer. That’s what I do when it comes to fur babies. Every single one we have ever owned have been rescues.
The funny thing is — is that I think I rescued Tucker, but in reality — he rescued me. He came to me at a time in my life when I was struggling with some things and his beautiful face and snuggles brought me out of that time in my life when I didn’t know who I was anymore.
He and I would go on walks daily to clear our heads, and just watching him walk proudly in front of me, gave me a sense of pride that my husband and I provided a forever home for our sweet fur baby.
For me, nothing says love like your furry best friend. Tucker has been my best friend forever now, and I cannot wait to take him to the beach for our family vacation in a couple of weeks. It will be his first ever trip.
Yes — I take him on family vacations because he is family. He will always be family, and my husband and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
And of course — who could not forget the amazing rescue of our cat Mittens. Her story is very unique (which I wrote about here). She has been one of the sweetest and most loveable cats I have ever seen.
These are the Fur Real Moments in my life — now I want to hear about yours!
Fur Real Moments Contest
Because Rachael Ray Nutrish knows pet parents, they created the “Fur Real Pet Moments” meme generator to celebrate those times where you just know you’re a pet parent.
Being a pet parent isn’t always easy. They chew on your good things, get into the garbage can, drink out of your glass and wake you up at some ridiculous hour just to say hi. But you love them anyway!
That’s why Nutrish wants you to share your fur real pet moments for a chance to win a great prize – a year’s supply of Rachael Ray Nutrish & $1500.
All you have to do is upload a photo of your furry friend and choose a category and caption that fits for a chance to win.
Why I Love Rachael Ray and Nutrish for Pets
For Rachael food equals love — whether she’s cooking a meal for friends or working with pet nutrition experts to create delicious recipes for your family’s furry companions.
Every Rachael Ray Nutrish food and treat recipe is made with simple ingredients like real meat and wholesome veggies, so they’re naturally delicious. You can find every Nutrish recipe — including the specialty recipes with zero grains, glutens and fillers — where you currently shop for your family’s groceries.
The main reason I love Nutrish is because a portion of Rachael’s personal proceeds go to Rachael’s Rescue to help animals in need. Rachael’s Rescue was created for all of the forgotten pets — the ones that might not have someone who loves them as much as you love your pet. Her personal proceeds from sales of Nutrish have gone toward food, medical supplies and treatments for animals in need.
I have turned many friends and family members and even strangers on to Nutrish for Pets. The difference it has made in the lives of my fur babies is amazing. I will always be an advocate for Nutrish for Pets because Rachael and her team love my babies just as much as I do.
What about you? What are some fur real moments with your pets? I would love to hear.
