Aloha Friday - Love Your Pet Day!

Today is "Love Your Pet Day" - a day for all pet-lovers to celebrate and share some love with their little furry friends (or fur less, if they happen to have one of those weird hairless animals). Anyway, in honor of this day, make sure and pamper your pet with a special treat or just spend some extra time together. And, if you are not a pet owner, but, thinking of becoming one, check out This is a wonderful site that lets you search your area for adoptable pets that would love to find new homes.

If you are a dog-lover, like me, check out this site for the most adorable puppy pics ever! They are so sweet, you will surely have a big smile on your face after browsing through these pictures.

Our dog is a 4-yr. old airedale terrier, named Emma. She is such a wonderful pet. She lives inside with us and is quite spoiled. While she loves to play and is great with our kids, she can also be a big lazy-bones. When she needs to go out to potty, she rings a little bell that we have hanging on our back door. And, for goodness sakes, if it is cold or rainy outside, she may just refuse to even go, she really can't stand to get her feet wet, you know. She gives me a huge sense of security because she will alert us anytime someone pulls in the driveway or comes to the door - I think she would surely scare off anyone who was here for no good. She loves to go with me in the morning to wake up my kids for school and she gets very excited when she hears the school bus in the afternoon. We are so lucky to have her!

For my Aloha Friday question:

Are you a pet-owner?

If so, what kind of animal do you have? What is his/her name?

OK, first...your dog is way too cute. Like, stuffed animal cute.
Second, I wish I had a pet. My hubs promised as soon as we're able to move into a house and out of a condo, he'll buy me a chocolate lab. YAY! I will get a girl and name her bella godiva. ;)

Our house is on the small side and my kids really young, so no pets here. The boys see the cockatoo at my parent's house all the time. I grew up with bird since allergies were a major factor.

Emma looks adorable. She must be a very affectionate dog.
