I’m sure if you’ve been on All Things Mamma much at all, you’ve seen a few of our pets highlighted from time to time. I think a house without pets isn’t complete. My husband and I both grew up with pets in our home – he had dogs and I had everything from cats to dogs to rabbits to pot belly pigs! haha! Hey, I am from West Virginia originally! We love our animals there!
So, with our own family, we’ve always had pets, too. I think that they just make a home happier. And they’re great for teaching the kids responsibility when it comes to caring for them. Our kids help out with all of the tasks of taking care of our pets – feeding, grooming, walking and even playing with them. It’s all about learning to care for someone other than yourself, how to show love and more.
Our two dogs, Daisy and Bella, and our cat, Lilly sure get their own “star” time here on the blog. We sure love them and treat them like our kids. When it comes to caring for them, it’s only the very best! We also like to celebrate them in our home. Birthdays aren’t just for people, you know?! We celebrate birthdays here, too! 🙂
Just last year, Bella celebrated her 1st Birthday! She sure is a big ol’ baby still and full of energy. We have a lot of fun with her!
Daisy is a little older now and not quite as active. She’s closer to 9 years old now and does a lot of laying around and sleeping. But, truth be told, she’s always been a little lazy. That’s ok. It’s nice to have a lap dog to hang out with on lazy days. She sure fits the bill there!
So, when it’s their birthdays each year, we like to give them a special little treat. One of their favorites is Milk-Bone Farmer’s Medley dog treats from Walmart! They love them and there are a lot of flavors to love!

Grain Free with Turkey & Pumpkin Biscuits
I’m not sure which dog treat flavor is their favorite since they seem to love them all!
Made with high-quality ingredients, no fillers, corn, artificial flavors or preservatives, and sourced in the USA, Milk-Bone Farmer’s Medley dog treats are perfect for our pups!
Daisy especially loves getting treats from Ella, my oldest. She really thinks Daisy is ‘her’ dog – and we all tend to agree.
They’ve been best buddies since we brought Daisy home. Ella was only 3 but they instantly bonded.
Daisy started out in a crate at night until she was a couple of years old but has slept at the foot of Ella’s bed ever since. I don’t mind since she’s such a good girl.
Most days you can find them sitting together on the couch. Where one is – the other is close by.
Ella was trying to give Daisy another treat above, but she wanted a cuddle first! haha! She’s such a sucker for belly rubs! 🙂
If you’re looking for a yummy, and good for your doggy treat, try the NEW Milk-Bone Farmer’s Medley dog treats! You can even earn a $2 with Ibotta at Walmart right now! That’s worth trying out!
Do you have a special furry friend in your life? I’d love to hear how you show them lots of love in the comments below!
