Cristina for Peas and Peace

JADE, WILLOW & SKYE

Thankful

Hi everyone! My name is Willow, I am an 8 year old Boston Terrier. In my family, we share and take turns in posting on the Peas & Peace blog.

Speaking of my family, let me introduce them to you!

Firstly, there’s Jade, he’s my older brother. He’s a ten year old Maine Coon cat, and needless to say, he’s huge (weighs more than I do)! Visitors often comment on his size, but it’s just common of the breed, so usually, after a comment’s made, we clarify that he’s just big boned (not chubby), so as not to hurt his feelings.

Then, there’s Skye, my ¬†little sister, she’s a two year old Yorkshire Terrier. I love her, although at my age I realllyyy enjoy my afternoon naps, and Skye always comes to sit on me while I’m resting, then nudges me until I play with her.

Next, there’s Cristina, she’s a human… interesting species! She feeds me, takes me for walks, cuddles me and sometimes has to discipline me, like when I wander off and don’t necessarily come back as soon as I’m called. I understand where she is coming from and know that she will always protect me no matter what.

After Cristina, there’s Maurice, human as well. He’s super great, I can do what I want when he’s around!

And lastly, there is Arielle, she is my human mama. I dont live with her because she is away for her studies and I miss her very much.

On this Thanksgiving weekend, I am very thankful for my family, and all families that have opted for a plant based lifestyle.
