There is no bond quite as unique as one between pet and pet owner. Whether you are a cat lover or a dog lover or a lover of all things furry, they are more than just animals. They become part of our families and part of our lives. Our pets contribute to our lives in so many ways beyond just scaring the mailman. They go through things along side us, the ups and the downs. They feel when we are happy and they know when we are sad, always willing to give that loving cuddle when you need it the most. That is a bond you can't break and a bond you won't ever want to live without.

Did you know that 98% of Canadians feel their pets improve their general well-being? Many studies show that owning and interacting with pets can improve physical and mental health, increase self-esteem and reduce stress. 

Hubby and I have had dogs as long as we've been together. Currently we have three chihuahuahs and a doberman. They are more than just pets to us, they are our family and we worry about them like we would one of our kids. 

One of the chihuahuas in particular you may know, named Mr. Ruffy, is always around me compared to the girls. He follows me around the kitchen, tugs on my pant legs when he wants to play. He even sleeps at the foot of the bed at night, he knows his place in our family. He even has his very own Facebook page! He is a small dog with a big heart and I honestly can't see our lives without him. 

This week (May 3-9th) is National Pet Week, a week dedicated to all things fur-baby. To show love for our pets, PetSafe is inviting pet owners across Canada to share their favourite, heart-warming fur-baby stories using hashtag #PetHappy for a chance to win a prize for their pooch!
