Meet Luna and Sylvie
If you follow my Instagram stories, you know that the stars are really my dogs, Luna and Sylvie. I get SO many messages about them so I want to cover some of those questions here. In partnership with Castor and Pollux Pet Food, I wanted to give you a true introduction to them, including their adoption stories, their personalities and how I relay my message of wellness into their lives.
In October 2014, I went in to the Pasadena Humane Society and found Luna secluded in a kennel, looking frazzled and messy with an ear infection. She was past her adoption date and nobody tried adopting her, but I was eager to get her out of there. They said she was found on the street and was about 6-years-old and a Miniature Poodle and Bichon mix. I was so happy to bring her home a week later and she was immediately attached to me. Over the past few years, I’ve concluded that Luna is such a sweet, gentle and loving soul with a little bit of sass if she spots a squirrel or a cat.
In December 2016, I attended an adoption event with Lhasa Happy Homes rescue. They showed me Sylvie and at the time she was possibly 5-years-old. The rescue shared that she was a really sweet dog and that her owners gave her up to the shelter because she had a tumor on her chest they did not want to take care of. Luckily, the rescue found her and got rid of the tumor and she was ready for adoption. Luna and her got along really well so we decided it was a great fit for our family. If I could describe Sylvie, I would say she loves attention and cuddling and feels very strongly about her sleeping and eating (haha).
I am so grateful for the amount of happiness these two have brought into my life and the least I can do is maintain their health and wellness as strongly as I maintain my own. They love their walks around the neighborhood, hikes along the city and runs along the ocean, but what really matters most is what they’re putting into their bodies. I want them to live as long as possible, so I want to ensure that what I’m feeding them is parallel to how I feed my self. Luna and Sylvie recently started a 90-day pet food switch to Castor and Pollux’s new ORGANIX and PRISTINE choices. Luna eats the Grain-Free PRISTINE Salmon and Sweet Potato with Raw Bites and Sylvie eats the Grain-Free ORGANIX Small Breed Recipe. They are seriously loving it so far and I am already noticing the difference in their energy levels and overall health. I truly believe it’s important to know where your pet’s food is coming from. Luckily, ORGANIX is made with certified organic ingredients, without the use of any chemicals or preservatives that are commonly used in pet foods. PRISTINE uses ingredients that are responsibly raised, caught and grown. Since starting this switch, I’ve felt much more conscious of how I’m caring for them. After all, they are family. Stay tuned for updates on this food switch!
