Love… in its purest form is something that is given without expecting anything in return. Love is beautiful, it gives us strength and sometimes even a purpose to live. In my case, those that I love the most give me courage everyday single day to go out, fight for my dreams, and make things happen for myself. Love is universal, we don’t need to speak the same language, or even speak at all to feel it and express it. The unconditional love we receive from our furry pets is a perfect example of this. They love us regardless of our skin color, name, flaws, or lack of.
Today I’m sharing with you the story of how I met my furry love. Her name is Maggie and she is three years old. We think she might be a mix between Husky and Belgian Shepherd. She was a cute three month old pup when we met. After my dog of fourteen years passed, Cappuccino, I decided to get another pet since I was really sad and felt the need for another companion. Purchasing a dog was never in my plans. If I purchased a dog then I would contribute to the abuse parent dogs go through. So I went to a numerous amount of shelters instead, in the hopes of adopting a new doggy. Many times I felt I had found the ideal dog, but something always happened that prevented me from getting them. Either someone was ahead of me on the waiting list or the dog I wanted was sick and I wasn’t allowed to take him home.
Finally one day I decided to go to a county shelter I found online. As I walked in I thought about leaving right away. The place looked run down and not very clean. But then I realized the shelter was overcrowded and there wasn’t enough room for all the animals. They were having to put them down relatively fast after receiving them (2 weeks) if no one adopted them. That’s when I knew I had to get my next pet from this place. As I went through the halls I noticed there were a minimum of 6 to 8 full grown dogs in one cage. All of them clumped together trying to get my attention. As I was getting ready to leave I found a significantly small cage around the corner with at least 15 Chihuahua’s in it. As I got closer to say hi, a cute little pup came out of the back, pushing the other doggies out of the way until she got to me. She put her face right on my hand and shook her head back and forth. It was love at first sight. That is how I met my dog Maggie. Luckily I was the first person to put my name down on the waiting list for her. A week later she was mine and got to come home with me.
