~ Stacey and Groot ~

Three years ago, Stacey adopted Groot, the Saint Bernard. Since then, they have formed a beautiful bond and have had a huge impact on one another. 

In 2019, Stacey had heard about a litter of Saint Bernard puppies. She jumped at the chance to meet them and went on a 45-minute car ride to do so. Once she got there, Stacey was excited to meet a Saint Bernard puppy as she had only ever seen them fully grown. One puppy in particular stood out to her. She picked him up and it was love at first sight. Within an hour, Stacey and her new pup, Groot, were on their way home.

During the 2020 and 2021 Covid-19 lockdowns in New Zealand, Groot helped Stacey hugely. At a time of uncertainty, Groot made everything better and provided everyone with a distraction. Things were stressful, but he reminded Stacey that not everything was lost and he filled each day with endless joy and unconditional love. 

Since adopting Groot, Stacey’s life has changed immensely. No matter what may be happening in her life, she knows she always has her furry friend. Stacey has learnt to appreciate the small things in life and to enjoy every moment. He has enriched her life as much as she has his. 

Both Stacey and Groot love playing together, from playing fetch to playing with one of Groot’s many toys. Seeing him happy and enjoying himself never fails to brighten Stacey’s day – it’s like watching pure joy! Simply being able to spend time with one another always brightens their days. 

Having Groot has had a huge impact on Stacey’s life. He has brought her endless joy and unconditional love. Stacey always ensures she is making his life as rich and full as it can be. They truly share such a special bond.
