‘Tis the season to give thanks for everything you’re thankful for! I’m sure you’re thankful for things every single day, but it’s nice to show your gratitude and let everyone know just what you’re thankful for. There are so many different things to be thankful for including the dogs in our lives. Simba is a part of my family so of course I’m super thankful for my dog! I can’t thank Simba enough for being a part of my life, but I sure try. Are you thankful for your dog?

Why I’m Thankful for My Dog
There are so many reasons why I’m thankful for my dog. Simba is my bestie and he takes that position quite seriously. He is there whenever I need him. When I call him he doesn’t hesitate and he comes running. He’s more loyal than anyone I know. If I’m scared (of a bug or something LOL) he will try to protect me. He makes sure I’m never lonely by following me around wherever I go. If I need someone to talk to he’s all ears. Feeling down? He knows how to cheer me up with his silly antics and lots of cuddles. The list goes on and on and on and on and on!
I’m thankful for my dog every single day. I show thanks to him in many ways. He loves belly rubs so I make sure to rub his belly several times a day. Sometimes we will spend extra time outside so he is able to explore more and enjoy the great outdoors. He loves his treats so I love to take him to the store and pick up a new extra special treat for him to enjoy. Life can get pretty hectic, but I make sure that I always make time for him and give him all the attention he needs. He would never ever forget about me so I make sure I don’t forget about him!
Simba is super thankful for the Thanksgiving gift basket from Purina to help him celebrate! As you can see he is loving all of the items in the gift basket.
