I am so grateful my dogs chose me. Yep, you read that right. I’m convinced our dogs choose us.
Like Bella, for instance, who I was not looking for. I was looking for a border collie to rescue, and not necessarily a puppy. But then I saw her cute puppy face on a rescue site. I had to find a new house and move before we could be together – and she waited for me.
Beary I wasn’t really looking for either, but he still found me. He was meant to be Bella’s little brother and we were meant to be together.
Each and every day I am so glad they wanted me to be their 2-legged family, and love the way they care for the littlest (but most important!) member of our pack – our Bubba.
Spend some time giving them extra love and saying thank you to your 4-legged family for loving you like they do, so unconditionally, and for being truly accepting of who you are. I make sure to thank mine as often as I can. If you can give your pets half of the love and adoration they give you, they’ll be very loved-up pups.
And if you’re thinking about a new addition, please consider adoption.
I did – and look how well that turned out.
