After years of believing we could never own a dog (due to allergy issues), I started really getting puppy fever.
It began with a little twinge, and after a few months of that, I could barely scroll down my Instagram feed without feeling intense feelings of longing for a furry canine friend. It made me sad, because we had owned a dog in the past, had pet-sat a dog for our friend when he went on deployment, and whenever we would interact with the dogs, we would break out in itchy hives and sneezes. No fun!
The puppy fever got so intense, I started looking up information on hypoallergenic breeds of dogs. Still, this was risky. I didn’t know if I really believed in the whole hypoallergenic dog concept. (Sometimes I’m just naturally skeptical like that I guess.) We finally found a miniature schnauzer (a breed known for being great for those with pet allergies) available in our area and I fell in love with him! My husband was wanting a dog, too, so we prayed about it, and quickly received our answer. We were getting a puppy!
Meet Gunther, named after my dear Grandma Honey who recently passed away – Gunther was her maiden name. He’s a miniature schnauzer, full of life and love, and we are so in love with him! And incredibly, we are not allergic to him at all! It feels like a miracle.
Of course, we want to give him the best opportunity for health and happiness, and that involves healthy dog habits. So inspired the Ultimate Natural Dog Care Directory! If you or someone you know has a dog and loves natural health, I hope this collection of natural dog care resources can help you in some way.
