Iams Home 4 The Holidays Blog Hop!

As part of our participation in the Iams Home 4 The Holidays Pet Adoption Campaign that runs from October 1 2010 through January 4, 2011, we're writing this post to add to the Iams Home 4 The Holidays blog hop. Unfortunately Parental Unit and I are a bit tardy-the blog hop started last Sunday and ends tomorrow! But at least we'll get in the swing of things today. (Really, it was all Parental Unit's fault!)

Here's the deal: For every adoption-oriented blog post entered into this blog hop, Iams will contribute 100 bowls of food to an Iams Home 4 the Holidays shelter in need-so write your post now!

Anyway, we were all asked to write a short post about how pet adoption has affected our lives.
Well, I can tell you how it's affected mine-I have a fabulous forever home!

But I'm generous enough to let Parental Unit take a turn:

"I'd always gone to a breeder (reputable for sure) to get my other dogs-I was like most people, I wanted a puppy! But this time, I'd been reading more about adoption and had become friends with a woman who does Airedale and Wire Fox Terrier rescue in my state, so by the time my little Wire Fox boy Carson, left for the rainbow bridge, I knew that adoption was in my future.

Bocci, don't get a big head, but I can't imagine a better dog! And he was a puppy when I adopted him-just 8-10 months-so I got the best of both worlds. And after many purebreds, I was ready for a "blend", and somehow, Bocci, you're blended just right!
I couldn't be happier that I've chosen to adopt a loving dog from our local shelter. And I certainly never thought I'd get a dog who could write his own blog! See what you an find at the shelter!"
