Celebrate Your Favorite Furry Friend! #StreamTeam @Netflix #Ad



    I’d been trying to convince my husband to get a pet for our family for years.  Three years ago, he finally gave in and we all went to adopt a dog from our local rescue shelter.  We wanted to save the life of a pet that might otherwise be euthanized due to the limited space that there is at shelters.

    Also, we knew that we were guaranteed to get a healthy pet from a shelter because most shelters examine and give vaccinations to animals when they arrive, and many spay or neuter them before being adopted.  As soon as we arrived, we knew that we had made the right decision.

    As we were walking around all the dog cages, a cute black puppy caught our eye.  I guess we made an impression on him too because he started biting the newspaper that was lining the bottom of his cage and spitting it at us to get our attention.  After playing with him for a little while, we immediately fell in love and promptly adopted “Onyx” and, as you can see from the photo above, the kids and I weren’t the only ones who fell in love with him!

    This month, Netflix is celebrating every single pet because they know that, aside from being really cute, these loyal pet companions can deliver important lessons to kids and adults about courage, protection and love.  This includes the world’s greatest feline fighter, whose swashbuckling adventure-comedy series, The Adventures of Puss in Boots, has come to Netflix this month.

  1. We just got a puppy, a big puppy and she is so awesome. WE really got lucky with her. I can’t wait to let my girls celebrate her birthdays and holidays with her.

  2. I’m going to try to make those cat marshmallows – they’re super cute. We have a senior kitty now but my son is eager for a dog…maybe one day!

  3. Susan Woods says

    We have 13 cats and a dog who thinks she’s a cat. Each and everyone of them are spoiled rotten. I don’t think I could ever live without a fur baby – they do bring so much life into one’s world.

  4. We have a dog, Milo. He’s so cute that I can’t help sneaking him some of my dinner under the table sometimes.

  5. Mary Madalene says

    We have a dog as well. Love the very first picture , it is too cute. She usually has some thanksgiving and christmas dinner when those holidays roll around. Plus she gets something a little bit something extra under the tree on christmas day too. She’s so spoiled lol

  6. We used to have dogs also. Now we’re down to just one parakeet. She’s a little easier to clean up after!

  7. Your pooch is adorable! Your hot cocoa is adorable! Puss in Boots is adorable! Good grief, I’m on cuteness overload!

  8. Nicole Ramage says

    Those cat marshmallows are cute. My kiddo just recently discovered Littlest Pet Shop and loves it.

  9. Your Onyx is so sweet! We have a black cat named CoCo and a white dog named Taffy – both are rescues, as well.

  10. Oh wow how cute! Those cat marshmallows are adorable my kids would get a huge kick out of them! They love puss and boots!

  11. Caroline Barnes says

    We have Netflix and love it! My husband could not live without it. We have a cat and a dog that we also rescued from a shelter.

  12. mena & taty says

  13. A Debt Free Stress Free Life says

    I have three cats – Louie, Sweetie Pie and Mickey. I celebrate them by feeding them everyday and giving them lots of love. Other than that I’m too busy for much else. They know they are loved.

  14. I have 3 dogs. 1 rescue pug and 2 boxers we’ve had since puppyhood. We celebrate them every day with lots of snuggles!

  15. Currently we have two cats. They are spoiled via food 🙂

  16. Cat shaped marshmallows? Cute! I don’t have pets but your dog is adorable!

  17. We have five cats. They get stockings for Christmas!

  18. I have a cat-her name is Baby and that was her name when I adopted her cause she is certainly not a Baby–she is a tyrant!! She rules me with an iron paw–but I still pick her up and cuddle and kiss and she lets me! She has her moments when I am being good!

  19. We have a cat named Onyx and a dog named Dash! Gotta love our furry friends.

  20. Chrystal M. says

    I have a boxer named Casey. She’s 9. I have Chug (part pug part chihuahua) named Tink (tinkerbell) and she’s 2. Then we have Ziggy the cat who is 4. One big happy family. My favorite kid friendly pet movie is Milo and Otis. For a teen or adult I like Turner and Hooch.

  21. Veronica Solomon says

    Puss in boots looks like fun! My little doggie loves to be snuggled up like that

    That picture is adorable! Nothing sweeter and more comforting than falling asleep with your dog!
