Soulmates Don’t Have to Be Human
If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (nataliecomstock), you know how obsessed I am with my dog Bailey. She is everything to me. Since the day we got her, she’s brought immense amount of joy into our lives. It’s hard to walk in the door and remain stressed when you have an pup greeting you with a huge smile and wagging tail.
For so many of us, our animals are more than just animals.
They’re family members. They’re our greatest teachers. They’re loyal companions and confidants. They’re protectors. They’re entertainers. They’re these little lights that come into our lives and show us what true presence, unabashed joy, and unconditional love look like. They’re gifts not to be taken for granted.
Bailey is the inspiration behind the newest Style + Spirit tee that reads “Soulmates don’t have to be human.” I wanted to design a t-shirt that honored our animals and everything they add to our lives – that recognized them as more than just animals.
There are no words that could possibly do justice to the love I have for my Bailey girl. There are times when I think of her, how much I love her, and how grateful I am for her and the tears just start flowing. It seems so ridiculous, but she’s my baby. With a husband who is gone for 48 hours at time for work, she’s my constant companion. Because of her, I feel safe and I always have someone to talk to. She’s my best friend.
I’d love to hear about your love for your pet in the comments and if you pick up a “soulmates” tee, use the hashtag #soulmatesdonthavetobehuman so I can see a photo of you and your baby!
To show support for animals everywhere and to try to make their lives a little better, 10% of the proceeds from this t-shirt will be donated to the Humane Society.
