Shay Shay was the first dog I ever owned as an adult. When she passed it was devastating and I didn’t think I could ever have another dog. How could I possibly go through that pain again? But one of my friends, a fellow dog owner, insisted that we should get another dog right away. I couldn’t do it. My husband, on the other hand, couldn’t do without another dog. Within a couple of months we welcomed Princess into our family.
Fast forward nine years. If you’ve read past posts you might already know that Princess passed away in November of last year. Again, I didn’t want to get another dog right away. And again, my husband did. We had plans to travel during the summer so I convinced him it wasn’t good idea to find another dog until we returned. But in the meantime, I could see how much he really missed having a dog.
Summer travels completed, I agreed to make a visit to the pound this last weekend. It wasn’t long before we found Ginger. And now our family is complete again.
