#Sponsored A Dog’s 17 Wishes for a Happy New Year 2017 #NutrishPets

Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own.

Well my furiends,  it’s Dakota and I am here hoping that you had a wonderful holiday! My Menorah still has a few more nights to go, but since I am a sensitive sort of Sheltie, I am already thinking about the New Year which is right around the corner. I decided to put my Sheltie brain to good use and share with you SEVENTEEN things that I am wishing for in the year 2017!

  • I wish I could finally chase the mail carrier away!
  • I wish I could also make the vacuum go away. I don’t appreciate how it taunts me!
  • I wish that Mom and Dad would play with me more. I know they are busy, but I am getting older now and they need to play with me much more than they do!
  • I wish I could have Nutrish more than just twice a day
  • I wish that all pet parents would take their animals to the Vet regularly, don’t wait til they get sick! 
  • I wish that Mom would brush my teeth more often. I do get a cleaning once a year, but I don’t mind having my teeth brushed one bit and I think that Mom should appreciate that and brush my teeth!
  • I wish my Sheltie girlfriend, Eva, would start blogging again. I miss her.
  • I wish that all animals would find a furever home.
  • I wish that Mom wouldn’t take blogging trips. I know she has two that she is going to be taking, I hope that there aren’t too many more!
  • I wish for Peace in the World
  • I wish that people would stop making me and my parents feel bad because I am not a rescue dog.
  • I wish that no more of my friends would go to the Rainbow Bridge.
  • I wish that I could do more to help the animals.
  • I wish that I could have more adventures in 2017. Many blogging dogs do exciting things! I guess maybe I should start to let Mom and Dad take me for more walks (I don’t love taking walks)
  • I wish that I stay healthy
  • I wish Mom and Dad would stay healthy
  • I wish that all of you would make the switch to Nutrish!!! By making the switch:

A portion of Nutrish proceeds go to Rachael’s Rescue®, which was created to help animals in need. To date, over $14MM has been donated. This money has gone toward food, medical supplies and treatments for these unfortunate animals.

    Those are some wonderful wishes, Dakota, and our crew joins you in many of them!
    The Momz here wishes that our crew would let me brush their teeth (but even if they did I also probably wouldn’t do it as often as I should), and I also hope that your Momz is going to BlogPaws as one of her trips (sorry) so I can get to meet her!

  15. Awww Dakota! I LOVE all your wishes, you’ve a heart of gold and we wish all (at least most 🙂 )your wishes come true!
    Mom has been hopeless on blogging in 2016 and the only excuse is she’s being LAZY! I’ll try my best to remind her about that again, I’ll try……. 🙂 Oh, she travels a lot too and she’s tired and she has lots of work to do when she’s back are some of the lame excuses too.
    Shhhh….She’s going to spend her New Year in Harbin, China. See, she’s leaving me and Dad home tonight. 🙁
    Have a great year of 2017! We wish all of you be blessed with good blessings, good health, wealth, happiness and joy!!!
    Happy New Year!!!

    Eva, Mika and Priscilla

    • Dakota says:

      Oh Eva I didn’t mean to make you feel bad!! I understand, I truly do!! Your Mom isn’t lazy like my Mom! Your Mom is BUSY!! I just mostly want you all to know that you are always in our hearts and always in our thoughts and we love you furever!! Love from all of us and Happy New Year! Hoping your Mom has a wonderful time in China! Love, Dakota and family! xoxo

  16. That is a sweet list of good wishes, Dakota. You truly have in in your heart for others.

    I don’t mind my teeth being brushed, but petcretary doesn’t do it each day either…though she does manage several times a week…
    I kind of enjoy the vacuum…BOL! I even like it when petcretary brushes me with it, Go figure! My kitty brofurs hate it though…but there were other kitties here that liked being brushed with it, and one of them taught me to like it too:)

    I think I would wish for most of the same things as you have…
    Happy almost New Year to you and yours!

    Dakota, don’t worry about not being a rescue. Our favorite brother (who now is waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge) was a German Shepherd. We wish you stay health too. Roscoe and Monty.

    • Dakota says:

      Thank you!! I wish I knew more people like you!!!! I bet that German Shepherd was one great dog too! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  20. I like those wishes Dakota! Vacuum hating must be a thing with both us kitties and you woofies.
