We recently held a “Thankful for Pets” contest on social media asking pet parents to submit a photo along with a caption telling why they’re thanking for their pet(s), and we just couldn’t get enough! We looked at the entries numerous times – all of the entries were extremely heartfelt and filled our hearts. Here are the winning entries:
”I am thankful for Gillian because she brings joy to our family every day. She is full of energy and holds so much love in her heart for everyone she meets. She is truly a gift” –Aaron R.
“Our granddaughter taking her puppy Belle for a car ride!”
“My two girls are the light of my life. I’m grateful for them because they are always there when I need a friend.” –Cassondra G.
All 153 of the contest entries made us a little emotional and prompted us all to ponder the reasons why we are thankful for our pets. Since many of your shared with us on social media, we thought we’d share some of our thoughts with you!
“I am thankful for my two dogs, Emmitt and Lilly, because of the abundance of joy and happiness they bless me with every day. I just can’t imagine my life without them. Every day when I leave the office, my first thought goes to them because I cannot wait to get home and see their wiggle butts and tap dancing feet.” –Jessica Medlin, Consumer Insights Marketing Specialist
“I am thankful for Moose and Trigger because they always brighten my day and give me unconditional love…and snuggles.” –Jessie McDowell, Content Marketing Specialist
“I have two cats Atticus and Edgar. I’m thankful for them because they are always happy to see me. The moment I open the door they are both waiting for me and singing away to welcome me home. No matter how long my day is, that makes me feel instantly better.” –Susan Trent, Customer Care Assistant Manager
“I’m thankful for my pets because they give me free entertainment. They all have their own unique personalities, and yet they all love exactly the same. I’m thankful for them, because no matter what kind of day we have, or they have, they’re always willing to let by-gones be by-gones.” –Andrick Buggs, Videographer/Editor
“I am thankful for my three precious dogs. They complete me and nothing compares to the love I share with them. I am thankful for their unconditional love, comfort, security, and company. My boys have changed my life and I am forever grateful.” –Jennifer Thompson, Water and Feed Solutions Marketing Specialist
We like to say “the happiest years of our lives are measured in dog years”, and we of course love cats too but just haven’t thought of a clever feline saying yet. Everything we do within these walls is done with our pets and your pets in our minds and hearts, and we are so thankful for you and your pets being part of our PetSafe family. We love hearing stories about you and your pets, so we hope you’ll tell us in the comments section below why YOU are thankful for your pet(s)!
