Olivia’s road to healthy eating with Chicken Soup for the Soul® Pet Food took an unexpected turn this month. A crisis hit my family and my little Beagle had to travel to another state to help out. To my surprise, Olivia is a natural born nurse.
My father-in-law fell and broke his knee. The doctor actually used the technical term that he “smashed his kneecap”. The injury required extensive surgery and for the last 6 weeks he’s had a difficult recovery. Thankfully, my brother-in-law has been there to help my in-laws. But last week he had to be away so my family traveled to give them a hand.

Olivia’s nursing adventure
When we walked in the door, my father-in-law was sitting in a chair with large brace on his leg and a walker standing by his side. Olivia looked around, accessed the situation and then hopped into his lap to give kisses.
It brightened everyone’s mood and set the tone for the rest of our time there. Every morning Olivia would hop into “Grandpa’s” bed and greet him with a kiss. He even started to call for her wherever he went in the house.
Olivia was a gentle nurse. She seemed to sense that Grandpa was hurt and needed some love. She didn’t ask to be pet; she just simply wanted to stay by his side and keep him company.
Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food came along with us
We packed Olivia’s food for the trip. It was important to keep her on the same healthy whole ingredient food she enjoys, even though we were 300 miles from home. Olivia didn’t miss one meal of her grain free chicken, turkey, pea and sweet potato recipe.
