Having a dog is a lot of work and something I'm not always great at, especially with 3 kids. Finding the time for it all is completely overwhelming. So when I came home with my dog Sir unexpectedly, let's just say he wasn't exactly welcome. I didn't discuss this with my husband, I just made an impulsive decision and brought him home.
I know, I know, not discussing it with my husband was not the greatest decision on my part. When I saw this little face, I immediately felt a connection. Something about him filled my heart. It's hard to explain but he somehow filled a void I was feeling. I had been feeling a sense of loss that I couldn't explain to anyone. Some of the recent events in my life had come and gone and yet I had kept most of my feelings to myself. When I saw him, my heart smiled. He was somehow exactly what I needed to feel whole again.
I have never felt this way before. I understand now when people say that their pet is like family. Getting to know this little guy and finding out he has his own personality and acts so much like one of kids is hilarious. He is a great dog, he is playful, he is wild, he loves my kids and he protects us like no other. He's my buddy, my daughters best friend, my son's pup, my daughters fox and my husbands running mate. He is part of our family and he definitely completes us!!! We love him!!!
