Vet Toys: Vet Pet Clinic
Vet toys are the best! In my house, we doctor my dog and she doctors me. Our vet pet clinic pretend play has been so healing and educational for everyone. Plus, it’s fun!
This is going to be a short and sweet post. I’ve been sick since Christmas and my brain is feeling less than creative. In fact, it’s downright stuffy, pained, exhausted, a bit sad, stressed, and frustrated.
So I thought I’d share a fur baby and girl baby story that I think many of you will appreciate….
As I sat with a sinus infection, while experiencing side effects from new meds and my son being sick with constant meltdowns, I watched my daughter “doctor up” my dog yesterday.
Vet Pet Clinic
All she wanted from Santa was a pet vet clinic, she loves animals! I watched my dog wait in the waiting room (yes, that’s my SensaCalm weighted blanket on the couch that I have been hibernating under while I’m sick!)
Vet toys are some of my favorites! My dog is the most patient loving animal and she encourages everyone else to do the same. As she lays there patiently, my daughter practices all the ways vet toys are like real vet clinics. If you are interested in the one Santa brought, Amazon sells it too. (affiliate link)
Dogs are so Healing
That evening, I missed a big traditional family dinner. As I sat in my darkroom, my dog held my hand and kept me company for hours. The head pain of migraine is really extreme! All of the other things really suck! And there are a lot of other things (body aches, nausea, cold hands/feet/nose, etc)! One of the hardest things is being alone and missing out. It’s really hard!
My dog is more than a dog, especially during these times. She is my sanity and a soul that is literally by my side during dark times. Anyone who has cried holding their pet can understand the depths of this bond.
I’m so proud that my daughter is such an avid animal lover. She gives and receives love in the biggest way and has the biggest heart. Seeing her show love and compassion is something really special!
Anyone else spending extra time with their fur baby being sick this Winter break?
Am I the only one fighting being sick while having sick children?
