Dogs are never just a dog to the ones they love. They always do more. They never just sit next to us, lick our faces – they remind us that we’re never alone.

This is Bella. She’s our 2-year-old Mini Goldendoodle that joined our family when she was just 3 months old. We LOVE her so much. It may be a little silly to some, but Bella is a huge part of our family in a big way.

Bella loves all of us. She isn’t just partial to one person – she seems to like each of us in different ways but loves us all unconditionally and fully every day.

For our oldest, Ella, Bella seems to like to lay around and snuggle with her whenever possible.

With our middle, Andrew, Bella likes to be a little rougher and play harder with balls and a little wrestling. She isn’t a rough dog by ANY means at all, she’s just a little more playful.

With our youngest, Sydney, Bella seems to be a mix of playful and snuggler. She does a little of both with our spunky girl.

With my husband, Bella likes to get affection from him and snuggles a lot.

And, with me, Bella is my companion. She follows me around, sits at my feet and just likes to BE with me. Maybe it’s because she senses I’m the mama in the family. Maybe it’s because we’re home all day together while everyone is at school and work. I’m not sure, but she’s my buddy.

Dogs Are More Than Just A Dog

I’ve always had dogs – and most of them for many, many years but Bella is different. She seems to really be in tune with our family. We joke that at any moment she is just going to start talking to us – she looks like she always has something to say.

If you’ve had a dog, you probably know what I’m talking about. And if you’ve never had a dog, you’re missing out. They’re just THE BEST!

Dogs Are Never Just A Dog

Dogs are never just a dog to the ones they love. They always do more. They never just sit next to us, lick our faces – they remind us that we’re never alone and also calm us and heal us when needed. Our dogs never just take us for a walk, they take us on a journey.

Milk-Bone, is taking a cue from their dogs by making treats that always do more. Taking what was once a treating occasion and turning it into an opportunity to care and inspire to do more.

This year, Milk-Bone is celebrating its 20th Anniversary with Canine Assistants, a non-profit organization that trains and provides service dogs to children and adults with physical disabilities and special needs.

To celebrate this milestone anniversary, Milk-Bone has created a heartwarming video to showcase some of the dogs and pet parents we’ve helped over the years to show viewers just how dogs are more.

I love how dogs can change the lives of so many! The video above was just an example of a few, while dogs are there for millions! I don’t know about you, but I teared up a lot watching those touching stories.
