Anytime someone asks what the family dog is named, they have a little chuckle when they hear “Bob”. It’s such a funny and human-sounding name for a dog! I’ll never forget how Bob got his moniker. It all started when our aunt Kim’s dog, Ruthie, had a batch of adorable Labrador puppies. Jai, Grandma and I went to her house to see the new pups and find out which one Grandma was going to adopt.
Grandma picked up a tiny little black puppy, held him up to me and said, “This is going to be MY dog, and I’m going to name him BOB!” And the rest was history!
That was almost 7 years ago, and Bob has gotten a lot bigger since that photo was taken! For both humans and canines, new challenges can arise as you get older. As I mentioned briefly last month, Bob has been having leg pain that we have gone to multiple vets for some time trying to diagnose. Finally, we found out that the cause was a torn ACL. Considering that I had two dislocated kneecaps that took a solid year to diagnose, I can really sympathize with poor Bob! Fortunately, he’s had a successful surgery and is recovering well, so he can go back to being the spunky Bob he’s always been!
I don’t know about you, but when I’m recovering from something, I find it comforting to enjoy my favorite foods. So after Bob came home from the vet, we made sure to fill his bowl high with Just Right by Purina, Bob’s favorite delicious food that has been tailored specifically for his nutritional needs and preferences, with nutrient-dense ingredients to support him as he recovers. Not to mention, “Bob’s Blend” has a great ring to it!
No two dogs are alike – even if they happen to share the same name. Fido, anyone?
