Do You Have Pets? 

Need Room for Them to Roam?



Our son, John, and his family recently added a new member to our family ... Lily.  A sweet playful beautiful black puppy.


Lily is now Marilyn's and my "furry grandchild" and is quickly establishing her place in our lives.   

As with all our grandchildren, we can't wait to see her ... and it's an absolute "must" that we have a pup treat of some kind for her each and every time we do.  I often find pup treat crumbs in my coat pockets these days.


In the pic here, Lily is sleeping on her favorite blanket with her paw firmly on her favorite toy.  This toy and other puppy paraphernalia can now be found scattered throughout my son's home.  Truth told, there's a bit of it at our house once again too.


After we visited our son's home this last weekend, the reality of what it means to have a puppy in the house came rushing back to me.  And it got me thinking. 


While our family's dog, Maggie has been gone for a while now, Lily's toys and blankets, etc. all reminded me that, like other kids, puppies have needs.  Toys ... love and care ... food ... immunizations ... and room to grow and play are a must for a healthy pup or any pet.


Our pets play a huge part in our lives.  They love us, play with us, support us emotionally ... all unconditionally.   If you have a pup (or other pet), you certainly know what I mean.  Wanting the best for them is only natural and right. 


So if your family has a pet and it has you thinking you'd like a yard for them to roam and play ... or of finding a new home that fits your and their needs better ... the video I created and offer here will be timely and supply some food for thought.  As you certainly planned and prepared before adding your furry friend to your life then, the video can help you plan and prepare to seek and find the best financing option to buy the home you want now.   






I hope you feel free to reach out to me, should you have any questions after viewing this video.  Lily and I will be happy to hear from you ... and assist you moving forward!

Gene just like kids our pets also need room to run around, and nothing better than owning your own home to provide them with that space.

A while back there was an article on CNBC entitled  Millenials put pets first when buying a home.  Times have truly changed for our four legged family members.  They are no longer regulated to the back yard some actually have their own rooms -, special diets , dropped off at doggy day care etc..

Hi Gene and welcome to Lily!!! Pets are such a huge part of our family that we always do what we can for them...even if it means finding them just the right fenced in yard for them.

A great call to action, Patricia. It's been years since we had a puppy or kitten... we've gotten into the habit of adopting grown pets mostly because they are harder to adopt out. And I've never been sorry to do so.

Hi Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi  what a cute little puppy! I had to smile when I saw her on her favorite blankie with a paw on her favorite toy. That is so our little guy Barnie!

Well, my grand-daughter thinks I'm the best whistler in the world ... (I'm terrible) ... but to be honest, this was a music clip I chose to go with the show.  Unfortunately, my talents remain undiscovered by those beyond my family ...

Glad you liked the video!
