The furry members of our family #PetHappy

I’ve known my whole life that I wanted to be a mom, so when I finally married my husband we spent some time moving into our new house and travelling and then I couldn’t wait to start our family. Unfortunately, I was having some trouble with my thyroid and my specialist told me with the medication I needed to be on, I wasn’t going to be able to start our family for possibly a year. I was devastated! We started our family anyway, by adopting our furbaby, a gorgeous chocolate lab named Riley!

Riley filled our house and home with love and she instantly became part of our small little family! As it turned out, it did take years of waiting, along with a miscarriage and finally, finally we were pregnant with our first son. Riley was there with me through it all, with more cuddles than I could handle. She really was a best friend! When our son was born, she was lucky recipient of two walks a day, and loved the new member of our family too. She was always patient and sweet with the boys, no matter how crazy life became when we not one, not two but three little boys in our mix!

Last fall, our old girl was having trouble with her health and she passed away. She was 10 years old and brought joy and love to our life, heart and family every day. Saying good-bye to our girl was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, but on her last day we took her for a short walk in one of her favourite places and I knew we were sending her off happy. She was our Smiley Riley, a funny, sweet, loving and kind fur baby to the end, and I miss her every day.

It’s amazing how pets quickly fill our hearts and become truly part of our families, they are silly and funny and make us smile. They are always good for cuddles and hugs when we need them, in fact 98% of Canadians feel pets improve their general well-being and we are definitely part of that percentage!

    We have two cats. They are awesome. Gizmo, our orange tabby, insists on sitting on the nursing pillow while I nurse my son in the morning. This happens every, single, morning! As my son nurses, Gizmo rubs his head beside my son’s head and licks his hands. It’s the most adorable thing I’ve every seen. 🙂

  81. Deanna Barkley says:

    We have 3 cats with 3 very distinct personalities. Each in their own way makes me happy. Our old, grouchy cat has suddenly become more friendly. She even meows for me to pet her. This is a very distinct change for her. Our other two cats are siblings that I rescued from the ditch. The female is very shy and afraid of her own shadow. She is definitely my daughter’s cat. She loves to be petted, but not picked up. The male cat is everybody’s friend. He constantly needs and wants attention. He head butts and has all sorts of antics to get you to pet him. If I am washing the dishes, he will come up and stand on the very edge of the sink and demand that he be petted. I love dogs. Our last dog lived to be 18 after surviving a stroke like episode when she was about 3. She was definitely my dog and followed me everywhere. I have had several types of pets. I could be the humane society I am told.

  82. Cathy Oppedisano says:

    My pet makes me happy by wanting to be by my side, being respectful towards me and showing me how I share a lot in common with my pet even though we are different species.

  84. Wendy hutton says:

    my dogs like to curl up on the couch with me, great companions

  85. Lauraleigh says:

    My spaniel makes me happy because she’s hilarious! She likes to sit on the couch upright like a person and watch tv with us. She won’t come right up and lick you but she might put her paw around you for a hug. And for the first few blocks of every walk, she walks on her hind legs or jumps in circles and makes joyful noises because she’s just that excited to be going for her walk. lol.

  86. Margaret H says:

  90. Everytime I walk thru the front door and that happy lil face is sooo excited to see me, really calms me down after a bad day!

  91. I have 2 kitties that make my life so much better… I could write a book about their idiosyncrasies! Suffice to say that, from my 6a.m. wakeup call (grumble grumble!) to squeeze-in-between-them lights out, they are a continuing source of amusement and affection.

  92. It makes me happy when my cats cuddle with me.

  93. Lee-Ann says:

    We have 8 pets. The 2 dogs (Bramble and Thornly) make me happy just by being dogs and always being happy to see me. The 3 cats (Bacon, Mushroom, and Waffle)make me happy by watching them and seeing how goofy they can be and just how distinct their personalities are. The 2 chinchillas (Apollo and Hermes) are just so cuddly and they make me happy when they give me kisses. The fish – Aqua – well, he’s just a beautiful fish. I thank the Edmonton Humane Society for all of our pets (except the fish, he’s from PetSmart).

  94. Sheryl F says:

    My dog Starskee and my cat Hutch are the joys of my life. Starskee was a 10 week old rescue when we adopted him in August of 2003. Hutch was a 6 month old rescue when my husband allowed me to have my fondest wish for my 50th birthday in 2010.
    I am always watching that little cat trying to entice his older ‘brother’ into playing with him I have been blessed to have these animal companions to share my life with.
    They are the family we chose!

  95. Erika E says:

  104. Terri Baker says:

    My cat Lily is an amazing therapy cat. She seems to sense when I am not feeling well or am stressed. She will jump beside me; something she does not do often, and snuggle and purr loudly. She is an amazing and important member of our family.

  105. I just love the noises he makes when we are loving him up.

  106. my cats make me happy by always being around and great company

  107. Harmony A. says:

    It doesn’t take much. All three of our dogs love a good belly rub!

  108. Julie Bolduc says:

    When I come in the house my cats great me at the door

  109. I had been dogless and heartbroken for quite a while. My previous dog had heart failure and I was very lost without him. My mom told me there was a westie at the humane society so I drove over to meet her. She was perfect and I took her home that same day. And that same happy dog I got from the pound greets me everyday with the same enthusiasm. No matter how bad my day has been. Getting home and being greeted by a dog who loves you unconditionally and that thinks you’re her whole world, is amazing.

  117. Jeannie says:

    Our Ozzie makes us so happy with his slobbering kisses.

  118. Having to put our black lab Jake down I didn’t want to go through that heartache ever again. We have two boys and felt after 3yrs it was time again to welcome another dog. We have a schnauzer named Arizona that fills our home with laughter and love. She waits for the bus and runs out to greet them as they head up the driveway. Seeing how happy my boys are and how much she loves them makes me wish we hadn’t waited so long to adopt another dog.

  119. my guy makes me happy by just looking at him. he knows wyhen Im in need of his cuddles

  120. Juliee Fitze says:

    They make me happy when they are playing and acting crazy.

  121. My sweet Milo passed away a few weeks after I began fostering Eugene. Milo had a congestive heart failure and I knew it was time to let him have some peace. He was the most mellow of cats; he willingly ame for his twice daily medicine, he let you trim his claws with no fuss, he cuddled and was always happy to see you. After he passed away, Eugene adopted me. It was like he was trying to fill the Milo shaped hole in my heart. He didn’t replace Milo though, he just created his own Eugene shape in my heart. Eugene is a quiet boy, always following me from room to room. He just needs to be near me. When I took in Darwin (a 4 day old orphan kitten), I thought that he might hurt the wee one. But no, he just let that wee gingersnap climb all over him. Now the two of them tussle, cuddle and sleep together. How lucky am I that they are mine!?! 🙂

  122. My pet makes me happy by allowing me to tummy rub him.

  123. Amanda Neilson says:

  135. Travelbuds says:

  136. Lynne M says:

    My dog definitely protected me after major surgery years ago. He knew I was fragile, and was my body guard.

  138. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    My daughter has a dog and obviously Sascha knows that I’m a softy – she always comes to me for a cuddle and a tickle. A cute little thing she is too, makes you feel good that she loves you 🙂

  139. Harvinderks says:

    I love that my dog mirrors my moods. When I want to lounge around, he’s happy to and when I want to be active, he’s ready. He is the one who meets me at the door and is happy to see me. I find petting him very therapeutic for me and he seems to like it!

  140. cheryl hodgkins says:

    My dog Teak makes me happy whether it is when he is standing staring at me to wake me up or bringing me his toys to play with him. He is just so cute and is always making me smile.

    I love that ever since we got Lil Man 6 years ago everyday he takes 1 piece of kibble to play with it first before he then continues to eat 1 piece at a time. How he will ride in my kids battery operated Jeep and has a great heart

  176. Jennifer Boehme says:

    My biggest listener and best friend, Sophia is the best thing to help my stress and make me smile daily. She is a puppymill survivor and I spoil her daily, but she deserves it after what her first 6 years of life being forced to have puppies in a cage nonstop has done to her. She is still adjusting to a good life. She is helping me, and I am helping her.

  177. My feral cats purr alot which keeps me rekaxed after a tough day at work. 🙂

  181. My dog, Eko, is so good with my three year old and will be laid on and hugged super tight and just accepts the sometimes too rough preschool love.

  182. Aimee Robison says:

    My two fur boys are always with me, and they can make my depression disappear when they snuggle with me.

  183. Rachael Bhardwaj says:

    i have 2 cats and recently a 3-legged rescue dog! They make me happy because they always seem to know when i need cheering up, and always come and snuggle with me. Leia (rescue dog) makes me happy because she lost a leg because someone shot her, and still she is the most happiest dog you will ever meet that it makes you happy just being with her.

    Unconditional love and jolly everyday when I wake up

  188. Its nice to come home to a dog that’s so excited to see you

  189. I have 3 cats. All make me happy in different ways. Shamrock knows when I’m going to sleep and cuddles right up with me every night. Bailey greets me at the door whenever I come home, and Lucky is just so crazy, you can’t help but smile. They’re a huge part of our family!

    My kitty makes me happy with her purrs and snuggles first thing in the morning. Best alarm clock ever!

  191. My pet makes me happy because she is a good and friendly cat that seems to love and get along with everyone.She is funny too and is always doing a combat roll at my feet ending belly up with four paws in the air,like she is inviting me to pet her belly.It’s really funny to see the drop & roll in action and never fails to make whoever sees it burst out laughing.
    I love my little friend “in a fur coat”.

  192. Wanda Muise says:

    I have 2 cats , I got them shortly before I got sick, they are both half Siamese and both have very different personalities. . I became disabled and was bed ridden for a while, well one of the cats (Jade) stuck beside me and picked up my spirits. She makes me so happy. I don’t know what I would do without her. Oh yes the second one sticks to my husband…

  193. Colleen K says:

    She wags her tail so hard when we come home and her cute little bark to welcome us home and to let us know she missed us.

  194. Lindsay Ball says:

    When he just knows how I feel. When I’m not feeling well and he’ll cuddle with me for hours

  195. Lots of TLC!
