#DrDHappyMoments contest winners unveiled
This past year was one of the best years of my life, also because Skai and I were lucky to spend more time together.
I have no idea why, but 2015 was the year of worrying less about Skai and really enjoying his sweet soul. We climbed the Rockies to celebrate his 14th birthday, travelled in the US and also ran on the endless beaches in Tofino, Canada. Somewhat, I came to accept that Skai is a little slower than he used to be and really enjoy working on keeping him happy and strong. My wish is that will have many more adventures together this year.
A few days go, I asked you to share your happiest moments with your dogs in the #DrDHappyMemories contest. The biggest challenge was to pick the winners because there were so many photos that we loved! That is why we decided to share the top 10 happiest moments with you here including the captions that we received with them.
I hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!
Happy Moment #1
These are my girls Pepper and Summer. They are shiba inus. Pepper is one and Summer is six. They are both doing excellent on all of your products. I am extremely happy to have found something pure and whole for them. They are my kids. Everything is for my girls. I am happy knowing they can get the best thanks to you making those supplements. I appreciate it. Anyways these girls made a huge trip with my dad and I across the US from Wisconsin to Oregon. They were such good trip companions and as always provided many laughs. This is us at the salt flats in Utah! Avery Goodwiler
Happy Moment #2
A year ago Kona lost her vision to glaucoma. It was a shock but we were determined and committed for her to live an active and healthy life. She is nine years old and it has been an amazing year. She still hikes and swims and loves the snow. We are blessed to have learned so much from this experience and she has taught us so much. Love this girl! Deborah Stevenson
Happy Moment #3
This is our 8-year-old (private) rescue, Oscar Peterson, out kayaking with his dad (His life jacket came off just for the picture). He was bought from a pet store for a couple of children. The family then split up a few months later & dad got "stuck" with the puppy. We got Oscar when he was nine months old. He came from a home that had NO time for him & now he is the centre of our universe. He goes most places with us. Heather Harton
Happy Moment #4
Snow shoeing yesterday with my GSP Sako. I am 26 weeks pregnant and love getting outdoors with my dog whether it's sun or snow in beautiful British Columbia!
Sako is 2.5 years old, raw fed, also using dr. Dobias products and has amazing energy. I love my dog! I just have to try and keep up with him! Jacqueline Gee
Happy Moment #5
Mya, Levi, Roxy, Jessie, Shasta & Coda
I have six dogs, Mya the 14.5 yr old Doxie doesn't stay for pics. We have done so much. All the Aussie's have done agility, we hike, I take two on the kayak each time I head out, we swim, do snow day adventures, and I bought a travel trailer, so trips are as a family. All are and have been raw fed, limited vaccinations, no chemicals, and doing great. Mya (not pictured 14.5) Levi far right 12, Roxy 3, Jessie 11 1/2 , Shasta almost 10, Coda 9. Its amazing how time flies. Everyone has a day alone with me on their birthday and each has their own favorite thing to do. Levi, Jessie and Roxy are also therapy dogs and it is awesome to see the love they share with others. Just snapped this pic of them while making their favorite cookies, they have been taking care of me while I get over the flu going around. I love reading your adventures with Skai, they are so inspiring. Diane L. Ostrem
Happy Moment #6
This is Sara on our one yr adoptaversary last April. Like Skai, she turned 14 this past fall also. I've had a lot of making up to do though to get her healthy since I've only had her 1.5 yrs now. Dr. D's trifecta has helped along with fresh food and two walks daily and lots of love! Mary Korst
Happy Moment #7
Our girl Meghan just turned 11 years this month. I feel like she caught her second breath since being on spirulina, soul food and gut sense. She even saw a massage therapist! She no longer limps and can go for long walks with us again! I love her so much and seeing her improve so much makes my heart flutter with joy:-) Livia Eldt
Happy Moment #8
Who loves the snow?!?! I am so grateful to have so many wonderful memories of our adventures, Bella. I cherish our time together! Love you Bellaroo Who and I look forward to many more wonderful memories!!! Tara
Happy Moment #9
Rusty & Daisey
14 yr old Rusty & 15 yr old Daisey taking a break from beach runs. Will head back to the trailer for treats and massages. Their joy is infectious and I always learn life lessons from watching them. Steve Harlin
Happy Moment #10
