We got a pet.
It's a Bearded Dragon.
His name is Maui. Like the Demigod.
One of my kids is allergic to dogs and cats. So we have a lizard. And guess what the craziest thing is?! We all love him. He's the PERFECT pet for us and I've realized when we talk about our family, we also talk about this guy.
Do you have a pet you love?
Growing up, we ALWAYS had pets. We raised animals and had cats and dogs and even rabbits and goats. I actually haven't loved pets. They were never really my thing. To me, they took time away from other things I could be doing. But not this lizard!
Maybe its because our kids have always wanted a pet --- but my heart is softer towards the idea of having a pet and Maui has been a dream pet to have. The kids love to feed him and hold him and play with him.
Have you seen previews for the movie "A Dogs Purpose"?
I saw a preview a few months after we got Maui. Oh good grief, this preview made me teary eyed and reminded me of all the dogs I have had over the years. I turned to my husband and said "oh, we are TOTALLY going to see this movie! " And I want YOU to go see it too!
The folks at Grace Hill Media want you to see it too. So, they are hosting a Fandango Gift card giveaway right here on the blog. From Grace Hill:
"Based on the beloved bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A DOG’S PURPOSE, is a sweet and lovable family film that shares the soulful and surprising story of one devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love. Told from the perspective of “everybody’s best friend” the film highlights the importance of familial bonds, and the unconditional love we have for our best friends. The movie stars Dennis Quaid, Britt Robertson, K.J. Apa, and John Ortiz.
To enter, just comment with why you love your pet so much.
