Mans Best Friend

Some of you may know this, but for those of you who don’t – our dog, Milo, is a rescue dog. He’s been with us for almost two years now and he fits in perfectly with our family. Milo had come from a family who just didn’t have time for him, so they ended up giving him up. Their loss was our gain, especially for my husband, Christian

While my Christian and I initially adopted Milo as an early Christmas gift for our boys, Milo quickly developed a close bond with Christian – and now they are practically inseparable. Seriously, wherever Christian goes, Milo is never far behind.

I’m not kidding.

Most evenings you will find Christian on the sofa reading with his little buddy on his lap.


On the days that Christian works from home, Milo is almost always glued to his lap (although I think part of that is that Milo’s nosy and wants to look out that window you see behind Christian).


Seriously, poor Christian can’t even shave in peace.


Oh, and whenever Christian leaves his clothes out, Milo guards them with his life.


As you can probably tell, Milo may be a little pooch, but he’s a BIG part of our family’s lives now and taking good care of him is important to us. Part of taking good care of him is making sure he eats right, so when I was at Sam’s Club the other day, I picked up a 55 lb bag of PEDIGREE(R) Adult Dry Dog Food for him.


PEDIGREE(R) is a brand that I trust and Milo really likes it, which is an added bonus.

But guess what? When a PEDIGREE(R) product is purchased at Sam’s Club, the PEDIGREE(R) brand will donate a bowl of food to a dog in need through the entire month of October. Isn’t that wonderful? So by taking good care of your own dog (s), you can help out another dog in need.


And get this: you can upload a photo of the dog you love to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #LaterShelter for a chance to be featured on How cool is that? The PEDIGREE(R) brand will donate a bowl of food for every upload, so what are you waiting for? Start uploading those photos and help some needy dogs in the process!


Our lives definitely would not be the same without Milo. He’s changed our whole family dynamic for the better with his little personality. If you love your pets as much as we do, be sure to check out more heartfelt stories here. I’d love to hear about your pets if you have one.

    He is a cute dog and he must be so quiet.

  2. becca112971

    He is too cute. I like that Milo help Chris in his daily routine.

  3. Becka @ Probably Crafting

    Those pics are too cute! They look like the best of friends. My kids have been begging me for a dog lately. If I knew they would be close like that I would probably agree

  4. Lois Alter Mark

    I’m so glad my kids grew up with dogs. They were always close, and I loved seeing them cuddle up together!

  5. jmanandmillerbug

    This is too funny! When my dad was alive, my dog would only go to him when he was around. it was so crazy to see because he wasn’t really a “man” dog except for when dad was near. I’m going to have to look into Pedigree for him!

  6. Michelle Liew

    Milo is a faithful, well-behaved boy. Hi to him.

  7. Jennifer

    Dogs are man’s and woman’s best friend for sure. I have three dogs, and they’re all my four legged children.

  8. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    WE love our dog like he’s our own son. He’s our best friend, and we’re his.

  9. Pam

    We have three dogs and love them all! The small dog that was my dad’s is possibly my favorite though. He’s such a sweet little senior pup.

  10. Amanda || Growing Up Madison

    I do remember when you got him and it’s great to know that he fits right in with the family. A lot of recue’s usually have a hard time adjusting.

  11. Fashionable Librarian

    Not really a dog lover but this dog looks pretty quiet and well trained

  12. Chasing Joy

    Milo is too cute. Makes me miss my dog Hurty. I used to feed him the pedigree small bites sometime.

  13. Melissa Pezza

    I’d love for our family to experience the joy of owning a dog. My son has terrible allergies, and we’re looking for a dog that won’t trigger his allergies so badly.

  14. Alissa Apel

    I think your dog is so cute! I wish I could have one. I think my boys would love to have one. I heard they keep you active because they like to be walked, and play. Plus they are always loyal – at your side.

  15. Terri Ramsey Beavers

    Milo is just adorable and dogs truly are man’s best friend. As soon as Peanut is old enough, I’ll definitely try Pedigree and see how he does on it.

  16. Mykidsguide

    Milo is adorable. Pedigree is a good brand. I give this to my fur babies, too.

  17. Helene Cohen Bludman

    Those photos are the cutest ever! My dog does the same thing. Wherever I am in the house, he is right there with me.

  18. Ourfamilyworld

    Same thing with my fur babies. They are like real kids. They are always following me and they love to snuggle.

  19. Betsy Segars

    My dogs are my children. They are so loyal and great company to have around!

  20. littlemisscant

    Looks like Milo has adjusted well to being “man’s best friend”. Love all the memories these photos represent.

  21. Jenna Wood

    It’s wonderful that Pedigree, with Sam’s Club, is giving back again this year! Our pets are our kids and we definitely treat them like family!

  22. Catherine S

    Milo is so cute. My sister and mom have 2 dogs and one follows my sister around and the other follows our mom around.

  23. tamaralikecamera

    Aw! I love having those cute “shadows.” My dog doesn’t really follow me around, but my cat does. And my dog’s unconditional love is truly amazing.

  24. Ana De Jesus

    Milo is adorable and I love the bond between him and Christian. I love animals x

  25. kristimaloney

    Awe, Milo is a cutie. I love the first pic with his Dad on the couch. Adorable!

  26. Mid-Atlantic Foodie

    We have a dalmatian and she’s my Milo. I’m without her for the next 3 weeks while we transition to Europe and it’s safe to say that I’m a mess… However… How cool is Pedigree for donating a bag of food for a bag purchased? I love it when brands do good and that is doing some serious good.

  27. tara pittman

    He is so much like a child. I have kids and I could not handle dogs.

  28. Jody @ Mommy Moment

    We do not have a pet, but my hubby and I were discussing the other day how animals can be such a great companion, especially for kids. Looks like a strong bond your hubby has with the dog.

  29. Debra Fazio-Rutt

    Dogs are man’s best friend! Our dog is the same way with my husband. She truly is HIS dog! He looks like a fun dog to have!

  30. sicorra

    Love that you guys rescued Milo. It is easy to see that he is very happy in his home with people that love him. Pets typically do stick to one person in the house, even though they do love the whole family. We have a male and a female cat, and they both spend more time with my husband, even though they are comfortable with all of us.

  31. aimee (@HouseofFaucis)

    Pedigree is such a trusted brand. We used it when I was growing up on our dogs.

  32. Liz Mays

    Aww they’re best buddies! It’s so cool that Pedigree is donating to dogs in need.

  33. Jeanine

    Milo is oh so cute! I just love his little face. My dogs growing up were all on pedigree and they were the healthiest and happiest dogs! I’m so glad to see Pedigree donating! There are SO many innocent little dogs who are in need so this makes me so happy (and teary!)

  34. Pam

    Milo is so cute! He looks a lot like our dog, Rio. I like that Pedigree is donating to dogs in need.

  35. lisa

    Dogs are truly man’s best friend. We have 4 best friends in our house and they are really part of the family. I couldn’t imagine life without them.

  36. Terri's Thoughts

    We really want a dog, but because of allergies, we need to find one that is hypo allergenic

  37. jenniferjuro

    Milo is adorable!! The kids want a dog but I keep putting off getting one. Pedigree sounds like an amazing dog for.

  38. Aimee

    We have a siberian husky name nova. She is red and white and in heaven now that we live in Alaska!

  39. Heather

    Milo looks so tiny next to that bag. He’s a cutie!

  40. patricemfoster

    Cute dog we use pedigree dog products…My dog is my BFF.

  41. Valerie

    Your photos are adorable. It seems Milo really does love your husband. So sweet.

  42. Donna

    Awwww. I have to say that I think that dogs are really great and this post is so sweet!

  43. Stephen Parry

    Milo is such a gorgeous dog! You are lucky to have a dog so loving and loyal.

  44. Julie (xfallenmoon)

    Ahah, that’s so cute. He’s always following him around. My cat was like that, I miss him a lot. Animals are so smart and kind, we have to take good care of them!

  45. dawn

    how cute is he. i love how he helps and that he looks so content and happy.

  46. Cindy (Prime Beauty)

    My little cutie is a huge part of my life too, don’t know what I would do without her!

  47. shaunatorres

    Ha, ha, ha… I love Milo… he is so cute. And I love how he sits on your husband’s lap when he works from home. Very cute. We have big dogs, who thing they are lap dogs

  48. Brett Martin

    We just got a dog and he is glued to me! That picture of your husband and the dog in the bathroom cracked me up.

  49. Liz Mays

    Wasn’t that something? Clearly Milo is very attached to Chris!

  50. Lois Alter Mark

    Dogs are the best – and deserve the best care! Love the photos!

  51. pamatiw

    What an adorable little guy. And I love his name. You sure can tell the bond between your husband and Milo. Nutrition is so important for our dogs and I love that Pedigree is donating a bowl of food to a dog in need when a bag is purchased. Great cause for sure.

  52. Mom Does It All (@misteedawnw)

    Awww, such a cute puppy! We have two kitties, but my sister has a dog and it truly is my niece’s best friend!

  53. Ricci

    Your dog is soooo cute!! I love shopping at Sam’s for my dog’s food too! I am always down for getting more for my money and helping out another dog in need.

  54. Kristin

    You gotta give your little buddies the very best right? Such a cutie you have!

  55. Trisha

    My mom feeds her dog PEDIGREE. It’s the only brand he likes!

  56. sign4baby

    I love that Milo is a rescue dog! He is the cutest thing. My kids have been itching for a dog and I think if we had one that wasn’t so big and overwhelming that it would fit well in our family.

  57. Khrista (ezeBreezy - Life Simplified)

    We rescued a dog too and my heart just goes out to all. I have a picky eater so I’;; definitely give this a try!

  58. Maryann Peik

    aw such a cutie! Pedigree is such a trusted great brand.

  59. thecrunchymommy

    What a cute pup Milo is!!! Glad you gave him a good home.

  60. Carol Bryant

    YAY for a blog post about dogs and yours is gorgeous. YAY for all Pedigree does to help dogs!

  61. Laura Gregory

    That is so cute how the dog keeps following him around the house.

  62. lisa @bitesforbabies

    What a sweetie! I love how your dog is just always around you guys…just like mine! The minute I move he is behind me, lol!

  63. Danielle

    It’s great that the Pedigree brand is donating bowls of dog food. We often forget how many dogs there are that need our help. And it just so happens that I just got a Sam’s Club membership so it looks like I need to head that way.

  64. Ann Bacciaglia

    My Sisters dogs follow her everywhere. They even go into the bathroom with her and if she shuts the door with out them they cry. The little one is only four pounds and likes to lay on her arm while she works on the computer. They are her fur babies.

  65. Tammi Roy

    We like to donate to our local food bank once a month. I always include a bag of dog food and a bag of cat food. Pedigree is a fantastic company.

  66. Theresa

    Milo is so adorable! It’s the opposite here. All the dogs cling to me and want nothing to do with anyone else.

  67. Chanelle

    What a cutie Milo is. With seven kiddos, we don’t have room for a pet, so I love reading these posts

  68. Teresa

    I like that Pedigree is donating to shelters. We have a rescue dog we got after our previous rescue dog passed away. They have both been amazing pets–so loving and a great part of our family. I can’t imagine not having a pet. They really teach kids empathy and a whole new level of caring.

  69. censie

    Aww ! Milo is such a cute puppy. Great post!

  70. crystal

    Okay, that’s just adorable. I love how sweet Milo is with his best friend.

  71. [email protected]

    So cute to see your husband and dog together. They are best friends for sure.

  72. Penelope

    Oh, that warms my heart! With a dog that special you’ve got to feed him the best.

  73. Sabrina @ Dinner, then Dessert

    Our little doggie was a little bit clingy too! You can’t help but love them for it!

  74. Simply Stacie

    It looks like Milo is very attached to Christian. What a lovable dog. Pets are always a part of the family.

  75. mythirtyspot

    I love this, and I love your pup! I don’t have a dog yet, but I am loving this food and what it stands for!

  76. victoria

    Milo is a cute and adorable dog and it looks like the sweet dog. Love the photos of your husband and milo together they look sweet.

  77. livingoffloveandcoffee

    Well someone really does love their BFF! That is so adorable how Milo is always there for him.

  78. Courtney

    Milo truly is man’s best friend. So sweet. He really loves his “pack”.

  79. miss (@thedealmatch)

    Agree.. my dog is very loyal and very sensitive! Love my dog so much

  80. Nicole Haas Etolen

    I agree with this, dogs are really amazing, I remember my dog before but he died two years ago.

  81. Rosey

    I like the name of the movement, #latershelter. I think it’s awesome that you got a rescue dog.

  82. Elizabeth O.

    It’s so nice of you to adopt a pup that’s been in a bad place. I can see how fond Milo is of your hubs, that’s such a nice bond between them.

  83. Erin (@SugarCrumbs)

    Aw, thats such a wonderful thing! I love the bond between a dog and their person <3

  84. Uplifting Families

    Milo sounds like an awesome dog. I am blessed that my dogs are a part of my family. My chi and yorkie love to follow me wherever I go. Yesterday, my Yorkie didn’t want me to leave. He was begging to go with me to the dentist. He loves his car rides. I usually take him and my chi if I’m running an errand.

  85. Urvi

    Very nice pics. And your dog is so cute..

  86. Krystal

    He looks like a really sweet dog! He’s very cute.

  87. thewomentalk

    Very well said. Dogs truly are man’s best friend. Milo is such a cutie and so fortunate to become a part of your family.

  88. Tami

    We have a snobbish cat, a kid hater chihuahua and a kid loving boxer.

  89. Chubskulit Rose

    Milo is so adorable, what a good little walking buddy. I’d love to have a small dog.

  90. Jenni E. {Sweet Pennies from Heaven}

    Aww, that’s so sweet! You can sure tell they have a close bond! We have two dogs, Izzy – the boxer and Pepper, our Rat Terrier. They’re both spoiled rotten.

  91. Mimi MimiCuteLips Green

    Milo is adorable and has certainly set the standard and drew a line in the sand. I love to see doggy dedication to their owners, even if Christina isn’t the only person in the house. hahahahaha

  92. Clarissa Esquivel

    We use pedigree with our small dogs as well. very trusting brand.

  93. socialite123l

    Milo is adorable .. wee there any issues in the initial stages when he transitioned into the Family. I use Pedigree as well and it works well with my Dog

  94. Alyssa C

    These pictures remind me of our dog. She loves my fiance and gets so excited when he comes home from work. It’s adorable.

  95. Lynndee

    I love your dog’s name. Cute! We don’t have a dog yet, but our son really wants to have one so we’re planning to get one soon.

  96. CourtneyLynne

    I don’t have a doggie, but I have heard fabulous things about pedigree food. Seems like it’s a great choice for all the dog owners out there!

  97. Kristin

    Aw! Look how cute is he. We love our boys and care about what we feed them for sure.

  98. Shanéy Maharaj

    I don’t have any pets yet but this post makes me want to get a puppy. My daughter loves animals.

  99. Kristi

    We don’t have a dog… but we have a cat that seems to think he is a dog. He follows us and howls if he cant find us. He also likes water and baths. Your dog is adorable… love the fun photos you included.

  100. Krystal's Kitsch

    We have two dogs so I can relate. Love the pics of your little furry friend.

  101. winifredjac

    That’s so cute that they have that connection. I always say that our next dog will be a rescue dog. But that’s not happening any time soon….

  102. toughcookiemommy

    Dogs really are man’s best friend. In our case, our dog is also very poorly misbehaved. I guess that is our fault since we have spoiled him so much.

  103. Stephanie Pass

    Aww, Milo is so cute! It’s so nice that he’s able to have his own person and hang out with Christian all the time.

  104. Toni | BoulderLocavore

    He is the cutest ever! I couldn’t imagine not having my furry friend with me all the time. It’s nice that you really take care of him with good food!

  105. Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey

    What adorable photos of Milo and Christian! Milo is absolutely one lucky dog to end up with your family.

  106. Ashley Gill

    I just bought the same bag from Sam’s for my 2 pups! They’re quite a bit larger than Milo, but I’m sure they’d be friends. Milo looks like a sweetie!

  107. Kelly Hutchinson

    It looks like your husband has a great friend in Milo. It seems this is the perfect dog food for Milo as well.

  108. Ms. Katrina

    I have a special place in my heart for lap dogs…even the gigantic ones! Lol. My chihuahua is sleeping beside me as I type.

  109. Astrid

    So glad Milo has been such a beautiful addition to your family and especially a great companion to Christian. I can totally iagine him working from home iwht MIlo on his lap.

  110. Onica (MommyFactor)

    I love how close they are. Pets are great friends and it’s good you found food to keep your special little friend healthy!

  111. Crystal McWhirter-Lopez

    You know what… I had no desire to get a family dog. I knew it would be work and after the new wore off the kids would not be excited to walk him, feed him, etc. Once the kids got a little older we brought home a rescue dog. Let me just say, he changed our home. This dog sleeps in my bed now. The UPS man thinks we have a 100 pound guard dog…. he just a 25 pound ball of love who protects this home with his life. Your little Milo is precious!

  112. Bonnie @wemake7

    Aww Milo is so cute. My kiddos really want a dog so we have been thinking about finding a rescue dog too.

  113. Yona Williams

    I think that is so cute that Milo guards your husband’s clothes. You got to love man’s best friend! I miss having dog.

  114. Amber NElson

    Sounds like a great dog. We have a black lab and we love her! She is so loyal.

  115. Mary Larsen

    What an amazingly sweet dog – I especially love the picture in the bathroom during shaving. Milo just wants your husband’s attention ALL OF THE TIME! so cute! #client

  116. casavilorainteriors

    I never was a dog person until 5 years ago when I got our dog. he brought so much joy to our lives. I have been thinking about switching from his current brand. pedigree seems like a great choice

  117. HilLesha

    He is such an adorable companion! He also sounds a lot like my dog. My dog is practically stuck to my husband like glue.

  118. NPC

    Awwwww, he’s his little buddy! That is so cute, he deserves the best!

  119. Lisa Rios

    Though we don’t have dogs at home, I understand they can be your best friend for sure. Milo looks cute & the bonding she has with Christian sounds amazing too. And that is a good deal from Pedigree to donate a bowl of food to a dog in need.

  120. chbernard

    I love that he follows you, mine does the same! I couldn’t imagine life without a dog!

  121. toxict15

    How adorable is your pup! Seriously super cute and I bet he loves the food
