in Dog of The Day

“At first we only got a dog because my husband and daughter wanted one. We picked out Sally’s sister from a local breeder. A day before the breeder was scheduled to bring us the dog we changed our minds and picked Sally. I was scared to death when the breeder called and said she’s on the way to our house with the dog. I’ve never had a dog in my life and I’ve never had anything to do with dogs. I seriously was afraid this dog was going to come to our house and bite me up and eat me alive. I was so scared and nervous that I even took medicine to calm my nerves. Then when I looked out of the window and the breeder got out of the car with Sally I fell in love and felt silly for having been so scared of such a tiny little ANGEL. So we kept her and she grew on us more every day. A few months later my husband and I seperated and I moved to a different city and fell into a deep depression. I was thinking about giving Sally away because I was so depressed that even short walks with her every day seemed impossible. My family helped me out a lot and came every day and walked her and convinced me to keep her. So here I am, feeling a lot better now (not depressed anymore) and Sally has grown on me so much. I am convinced that I was meant to have her and we were meant to change our minds last minute and pick her. I love her so much and wouldn’t give her up for anything. I loved and cuddled on her on the darkest days of my life. A friend of mine who had also been through an ugly divorce said to me ”Love on your dog. Animals have a way of healing, too.” I know now that she was right.”
