I brought this small and perfect animal into my life 3 weeks ago tomorrow. She’s crazy, a ridiculous amount of work, wakes me up at 6AM every day, and eats anything she can get her paws on. But she’s also smart, adorable, the perfect amount of cuddly, insanely photogenic, and my new best friend. We’ve already created a bond that makes me smile. We already get each other and it’s only been 3 weeks.
When my relationship ended, so did my relationship with our dog. It ripped me apart. I spent every day taking care of that dog. Two years we spent together in a tiny little camper. We grew up together. Hiking mountains, swimming in lakes, riding shotgun, playing in the sand, exploring new towns, cuddling during the sunrises, and sharing snacks around bonfires. She was the first dog that really felt like my own dog and then just like that..she wasn’t mine anymore.
I don’t know how to live without a dog so I adopted Honey. She needed a home and I needed her. I never expected to fall in love with her so quickly. She’s not quite trained yet and she bites my toes, but she’s mine. All mine.
