Doggy Ally Pardo won our Halloween contest back in October. Her photo earned the most votes! As a thank you, we wanted to feature her in our blog and get to know Ally and her momma! Here is their story!
Tell us the story of how you became a doggy momma! Did something in your life happen that influenced you to get your doggy? My 11yr. old Pug named Dallas, pass away April 31, 2016. The pain was unbearable. At that point my husband and I decided not to get a new pup. We didn’t want to go through that pain again. Not long after I started getting anxiety, feeling lonely and feeling empty.
In January of 2017, I told my husband I was ready to add a new member to our family. I described exactly what I wanted; a daughter for me to spoil, love and take care of. I needed a happy and complete home again. My husband agreed, and I started my search.
I posted on Facebook what I was looking for. Within a month a gentleman contacted me and said he has the pup I was looking for. He sent me a picture and immediately I fell in love with her. To top it off, she was born the same day of my marriage anniversary, January 27th. On April 6, 2017 I took a flight from NJ to OK to pick Ally up. When I arrived, Greg handed her to me and it was magical. I knew from that day forward my life was going to change for the best and it was complete.
Ally and her daddy have a special bond. Everything for my husband is Ally and everything for Ally is her daddy. My husband is a motorcycle rider and a trucker. Some of his motorcycle friends tease him because my husband is always carrying and kissing her in any event that we take her, such as a motorcycle event or BBQ. He doesn’t care that he’s getting teased because he loves his little girl too much. My husband and I use to both work during the day before our princess arrived. After, my husband ended up changing his work schedule to nights just to make sure Ally is not left home alone. Ally is the first one we greet, the first one we grab in the morning and the last one we kiss at night. Ally sleeps with us and she gets treated like royalty.
Ally is very smart, funny, spoiled and a happy girl. She loves to pose for pictures, get dressed, cuddle, play, eat and sleep. She loves the attention she gets from everybody the most. My 4 kids (adults) are jealous of Ally, but they love her very much.
What is the #1 thing you love about being a doggy momma? The love we give each other, including her dad Dinky. The joy and warm welcome we get when we get home.
Let’s talk momma/doggy health! What do you do together to stay happy and healthy? I take Ally everywhere I can. In the summer we go out to eat at restaurants with outside seating, Ally orders naked scramble eggs. We also enjoy going to festivals and street fairs. We spend the night watching TV together.
What is the biggest gift you have experienced being a doggy momma? The gift of life, happiness and joy.
What are your favorite health and/or pet products that you cannot live without? Brush, comb and hair accessories. Merrick dog food, but I want to learn how to cook for her.
Thank you to Ally’s mom and dad for being such rockstar parents!
