Celebrating Stevie & $25 Fandango Gift Card Giveaway

Stevie

As most of you know, we have a dog named Stevie!  He is a shepherd mix that we rescued a few years ago now.  He is so fabulous with kids.  We got him when F was only a few months old and of course we have had Baby G and Stevie is as happy as can be.  He is also a mess!  But honestly, so am I most of the time.  The reason I say he is a mess is because he loves "people food" and he is constantly finding ways to get into it.  However, he is super smart so I am optimistic that he can be trained to stay away.

When A and I finally returned to Austin after our extended time in San Antonio last year I remember Stevie was such a source of joy.  A had/still has lots of late nights with various therapies and treatments and Stevie was and is right there by her side to cheer her up when needed.  He always seems to be available in that way - a true gift. 

 Kid Train with Stevie

I remember shortly after we adopted Stevie one day the kids were making a pretend train with boxes and laundry baskets in the living room.  I looked over and there was Stevie, a part of the happy train.  I knew then that he was truly ours.


You may remember me mentioning it before but there are just a few more days until A Dog's Purpose is out nationwide - January 27th to be exact.  I saw an advanced screening of it a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed it.

Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.



And now for the giveaway!  One of you will win a $25 Fandango Gift Card.  Just enter below and good luck!

I think dog truly is "man's" best friend, and this movie is the prime example of how truly loyal a dog is to his "owner". I think it is just as important that man be loyal to his companion as well!
