Show Notes

Hi Everyone!. Rob Cairns Here. I am the CEO/Chief Creator of Amazing Ideas at .

Today I want to talk about something really important. Why as a business owner you need animals in your life. This special episode is dedicated to Ms. Millie Cat. For those who have followed Jill and I on social media you know we took in Jill’s mom’s cat Millie. Millie was sweet and we really enjoyed having her. Unfortunately in the last couple of weeks we lost Millie . Millie has now gone to be with Jill’s Mom. Millie RIP we miss you.

I love animals and so does my wife Jill. We have three chiwawas named Copper, Percy and Ruby. We also have a cat Dexter. 3 of the 4 are rescue’s. When you come to our house you come to the zoo.

The puppies really do not like anyone they do not know or who does not live here. The front yard on the building is their yard, the street theirs and so on. They are not possessive are they!

But affectionate is not the word. Ever since Jill and I started dating again a number of years ago Percy has kind of become my puppy. He follows me around, naps with me and even sleeps with me. He has even made sound appearances on many of my podcasts and shown up in many video chats with clients and friends. His guest appearances are legendary,

One of the hardest things about working from home is taking a break. Puppies force you to take those breaks.Our puppies generally go outside every 2 to 3 hours. If I forget or get caught up in something, they will remind me by winning at me. This is good because it forces me to get up out of my chair, stretch and get fresh air.

Today for example it was a good day outside. They were outside 6 times. They love it outside and can never get enough of it.

Pets give you unconditional love. I can not tell you the number of times I have had bad mornings or nights and just cuddle up with one of my puppies or our cat. They love to snuggle and more importantly they love to cuddle. It makes those bad days better and the good days even better.

Go out for the day and imagine being greeted by Dexter, Copper, Percy and Ruby. It is a nice way to come home!

Dinner time can be challenging. What is even more challenging is getting cheese out. The 4 of them smell it a mile away. Not to mention meat, popcorn and many other things they are not supposed to have.

If you find you are down a lot or finding yourself lonely, get a pet! They are the best company going.

We are lucky and I would not give up Jill’s and my zoo for the world.

Have a great night and if you do not have a pet get one.

This show was dedicated to Ms. Mille Cat. Rest in peace little one.
