I think these two have destroyed three couches? At least 8 rugs. Gnawed on walls.Legs of tables.
They’ve hidden shoes. Swallowed socks.
They’ve barked when I’ve needed quiet.
Jumped up when I’ve needed gentle.
Dragged mud onto white bedding. White rugs. White sweaters.
they brought happiness to my dad in his final days. Comfort to me and my daughters when our hearts were breaking.
They’ve protected. Cuddled. Loved. And are-with complete and dedicated commitment-loyal to who we each are. No questions asked.
“Should I get a puppy?” I’ve been asked.
my answer, when I think about couches and messes and sleepless nights…
“If you want to understand what true connection is. What love is. What pricelessness is. Then-yes. Adopt a puppy.”
