For the Love of Your Dog: K9 Advantix® II

by | Aug 1, 2014 | Animals & Pets, Sponsored

We became dog owners about 5 years ago. About 1.5 years ago we became the owners of TWO dogs.


Just like children, no two dogs are the same.

My two are especially NOT the same. With the exception that they both think they are human and they both love people.

Kevin is stoic, yet gentle. Gus is a busy-body, but snuggly.

Kevin took to potty training like a pro. Gus is all, “What?”

Despite the certain challenges that owning a dog can bring… they have dug a spot so deep in our home and hearts. And laps…

Honestly, I was set on not bonding with Gus. He came to us at a tough time for me. But dog-gone that dog and his snuggly, cute, adorable ways.

What they add to our family (besides hair on the floor) has been what amounts to a whole bunch of delight. They make us laugh. They give me lots to write about. It just cracks me up how much like my own children they are… always underfoot. Sometimes making me crazy, but most of the time making me smile and reminding me to slow down and enjoy our sweet little life.

So when stuff happens, like FLEAS… I want to make sure they get what they need. Of course, fleas in the house is not awesome, but how miserable it is for our dogs. All that horrible scratching. Makes me thankful there are remedies to help, like K9 Advantix® II. As a mom of humans, I work to care for my children’s owies… and as a mom of dogs, I do the same.

I hate it when they are miserable.

I remember when I finally got a small bed for Gus. He had been sharing Kevin’s big bed, which meant… Kevin was not sleeping in his bed because Gus is a cute little sneaker like that. Poor Kevin…

So I decided it was time Kevin got his bed back and Gus got something that would fit him with a bit more snuggle…

Silly animals. Always making me smile. We are not a family of 5… we are a family of 7. I know many dog owners feel the same.
