As I sit here eating a banana my best buddy is drooling right alongside me. Dito, is my lovable pup, my protector, my comforter.
I was scrolling through facebook one afternoon and Dito's face made me stop. He was for adoption, and he'd been there for a while. I stared at the picture for a bit before tagging my boyfriend and hoping he would get that same gut feeling. He responded, "stop tagging me in stuff woman." Then the next day as we were eating breakfast he said, "You better hurry up and get ready." Confused I responded, "uhm no I told you I close tonight. I have plenty of time." "Oh I guess you don't want to go see the dogs." My face changed, I kind of teared up a bit, "Really" I start eating faster. "Yeah, we're just going to see them though. Not promising we will adopt one." I knew he was just saying that. The look in his eyes told me he wanted to be a fur parent too.
We don't have children. We both just have so many things we are trying to accomplish before bringing a child into this world. This pup is our baby now. Once we met him in person we knew he was the pup for us. Not to be mean all the other dogs seemed cool, but Dito instantly seemed like family. I knew he was the pup for us. Once they said he'd been there the longest of all the other dogs, just waiting to be adopted, I knew he would be. :)
Having this guy around has helped my depression so much. He is always so excited to see me. Greeting me with a shaky butt as I walk in the front door and loving on me with sloppy cheek kisses. I love my Dito! Today is Love Your Pet Day, but I love mine everyday! Tell me about the pet you love!
Until next time!
