Aladdin wants to take you on a magic carpet ride to a whole new world of belly rubs and kisses! He is far more than a street rat and will win the heart of the princess (and everyone else in the house) if he's only given the chance! He and his four sisters (all appropriately named after Disney princesses) are available for adoption through BBAR and are all wonderful with children, other dogs, and cats. They are approx 18 weeks old and are fully vetted and ready to move into the palace! For more info you can pm us here or email us at email@example.com. Aladdin will be on the local west TN news as the adoptable pet of the week on Wednesday February 26th so check him out at 12:00pm on ABC and 12:30pm on CBS!!!
A PET IS A FAMILY MEMBER TOO
A pet is often a member of the family. In fact, surveys show some interesting facts about pet owners: 84 percent consider their animals family members; 99 percent talk to their pets and 54 % celebrate their pets birthday.
The term “man’s best friend” brings to mind unconditional love, constant companionship and acceptance.
With your capacity to love your pet comes the necessity to grieve when that “best friend” dies. The death of a pet is a traumatic experience. There is a need to grieve at this time and to do so in a healthy way.
A PET’S DEATH IS SIGNIFICANT
No, it’s not “just a dog”. It is a family member, and the death is a significant loss. Unfortunately, society often denies you the need to grieve, and, as a result, your grief may be hidden, buried, or ignored. Your family needs to grieve the death of your pet by expressing your feelings, no matter how painful, outside of yourselves.
MEMORIES ARE THE BEST LEGACIES
Yeah, right. That's how it always starts, right? And before you know it, your house is filled to the rafters with pups of all shapes and sizes.
And we want to hear all about how it happened! We love pictures! And we all like a good tear-jerker especially when it's good news. If you would like to share your story and/ or pictures with us, please use the form on the right side -------> over there. You can upload up to two (2) files.
We can't wait to see what you have for us and the rest of the bbar nation!
Have you heard about the Question of the Day contest?!
Here's the deal; we are already running out of ideas for questions to ask everyday on our Facebook page, so we are coming to you for help. Throughout the week we will post the questions that you send us to ask, giving citing you as the originator of the question. On Friday each week, we will select a winner for the best question; the winner qualifies to be in the drawing for an amazing prize!
We will have more details for you in January. For now, please help us spread the word about this contest. It could be the easiest - oops, I almost gave it away. But seriously, we would love to hear what kinds of questions you would like for us to ask on the page. We look forward to hearing from your soon. -- Sincerely, bbar nation
