Making a Move and Adapting with Pets

This post is sponsored by Lunchbox about Purina One available at Sams Club. All opinions are my own.

I knew when we moved that so much would be changing. My children knew that there would be adjustments. My husband, he and I have moved so many times in our lives, we knew what to expect but to be honest, I didn’t give much thought to our pets! We were leaving the quite and seclusion of the country to move into a small rural town, but in a town none-the-less.

Once we were starting to settle and ready to bring the animals over, we started thinking about the difference it would be for them. They were use to the bugs singing all night, not the occasional car passing or horn honking or so many other animals. The lights are a big adjustment. We are not in a major city, and our neighborhood of town is quite, but it is nothing like being the only light on around.

We have been pleasantly surprised that Sammie has handled it like a trooper. He is no longer a young pup, but going on 9+ years strong. He still acts like a puppy most days.

To make the transition a little easier, we have tried to keep as many things the same or familiar as possible. We brought his huge dog house over from our country house. The kids still go out to play with our ever so full of energy golden, and we still feed him the same food he loves, Purina One.

Since we made the switch he seems to have even more energy than ever before. He obviously loves the taste, because he is always happy at dinner time and even though he isn’t brushed as regularly anymore, his coat is just as full and shinny as ever.
