Many people bring a dog into their family after having kids. Some bring a dog into the family instead of having kids. Around the age of 25 I started to go through a hard time, with work, with relationships, and life in general. I began to think that kids were not something that was going to happen for me. (Little did I know, right?)
To help fill that void in my life, I got a dog. Not just any dog, a Shih Tzu with enough personality for five children. Roxy was there to snuggle in my lap each and every night, she would curl up in a ball up by my pillow in bed, and whenever I needed a companion she was right there by my side. Many would say that Roxy was my child, before having children.
Cesar Canine Cuisine believes that a relationship with a dog can truly improve life, including people that are in need. Dogs can help lower stress levels, reduce anxiety, and even lower blood pressure. This is something that we could all use in our lives.
The unconditional love from a dog is something that is unmatched with any other. Roxy always knows how to make you smile with her wild ways of running laps around our house, laying up on the couch behind you just to rest her head on your shoulders, or even when she comes running to you after being away from home even for a short while.
Cesar created the Share a Story and Share the Love initiative, a social media campaign to help support and spotlight therapy dog organizations, to ensure people in need continue to receive the powerful benefits of a dogs unconditional love.
The Share a Story and Share the Love campaign encourages dog lovers to share the heartwarming stories of therapy dogs through their social media communities such as Facebook and Twitter. In return, Cesar will share the love with three therapy dog organizations through donations that help continue the services they provide to people in need.
Has your dog helped you in a time of need? Share your story!
I wrote this review while participating in an ambassador program by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Cesar and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
