I didn’t think I wanted a dog.
I had all these thoughts about what it would be like to have a dog. Thoughts like – I don’t want to be in charge of a dog. I don’t want to be the only one that takes care of the dog. I don’t want to be in charge of anyone else.
For years I said no to a dog, even when my girls were begging me for one.
Then one day Clara and I were taking a walk. When we go for walks, her goal is always to meet at least one dog that she can pet. This day we met a dog and the owner asked if we wanted her.
I thought he was joking and my immediate answer was no. But we kept talking and when I heard about all this sweet little dog had been through, I changed my mind.
I WANTED this dog.
I knew we could give her a loving home and treat her the way she deserved.
My thoughts about having a dog totally changed. I started thinking about how she could be cuddled up on the couch with me. How we could take her with us when we went for walks. How happy the girls would be to have a dog.
So, we got the Daisy.
And now that we’ve had her for awhile, I can tell you that I am not the only one in charge of her AND she makes me laugh every day. The hilarious way she jumps her back legs when she goes down the stairs. Her little ears flapping when she runs.
