Alright. We admit it. We’re dog lovers. And we were so happy when we saw the latest Coldwell Banker commercial during the 2015 Academy Awards. If you missed the commercial you have to see it. You will fall in love with the dog actors, but more than that you will get to see all the wonderful things Coldwell Banker is doing to help homeless dogs. For over 100 years Coldwell Banker has helped people find a home, and now their mission has been extended to man’s (and woman’s) best friend. Coldwell Banker has “teamed up with, North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website, to help adoptable dogs find a loving home.”

On the Coldwell Banker site you’ll get to see bloopers from the commercial, a dog owner’s guide to finding a home, advice on how to make a stress-free move with your pets, learn how to install a dog door, and see how adopting a dog makes your heart fuller.

My wife Kirsten and I have three adorable dogs. Bailey is the oldest at 14 and he’s a Papillon. Kirsten welcomed him into her life when he was only 12 weeks old. Tyson is our next oldest at four years old. We found him at the Humane Society and we have loved each other ever since. Lulu is our third puppy, and at only one year old she adds a lot of love and wonderful female doggie energy to the mix. Coming home to our dogs at the end of a long day is so much fun. They’re always glad to see us and greet us at the door with wagging tales and lots of smiles. We even have a sign at our back door that says, “The welcome home doggie dance done here.”
