Today is all about how much I love raising my boys with my little dog too. I grew up with a dog – Biscuit. He was our family dog that my brother and I convinced my parents to get when we were kids. I got to name him and he was with us for 17 trips around the sun.
I knew how much fun and how amazing it was to grow up with a dog in the house. Looking back now, it was a great responsibility for my brother and I – we were older than my boys are now, but having a pet to look after, feed, walk and care for is a great thing for any kid. And the bond you get is priceless.
Having my boys grown up with Jackson is so special for me to watch each and every day. As they have gotten older, they are so much more into playing with Jackson, taking care of him, helping hold his leash when we go for walks and making sure he has fresh food and water.
It’s actually pretty helpful to have two extra sets of eyes keeping tabs on little Jackson!
Brooks and Graham love to cuddle with Jackson, hang out with him on the couch and veg out watching movies together. And Jackson enjoys the extra food nibbles the boys always sneak him too. They all have a special bond and while Jackson has always been a chill dog, he’s extra cool, calm and collected in his senior years – meaning more time for toddler cuddles, which everyone enjoys.
Jackson is MORE. He’s my third child, a part of our family and my little dog too. He definitely is responsible for bringing more love into all our hearts. I was excited to celebrate and team up with Milk-Bone® + their Gifmaker to create a customized gif that shows the world how Jackson is more. I had so much fun using the Milk-Bone® Gifmaker – it was a great way to connect everyone with Jackson and give a little look at how active and FREE he really is! Here’s a little screenshot of the Gif I created – you can see the whole mini video if you check out this tweet!
Now its your turn to share – How is your dog more?!
