i saw something on facebook yesterday that reminded me that there will come a day when you open your door after a long day and aren't greeted by the wagging tails, the jumping dogs and the wet kisses. there will come a day where your stuff won't be destroyed anymore, your floor won't be perpetually covered in dog hair and you'll have your personal space back, but you'll be missing an integral part of your being: your best friend. so embrace the “annoying parts” of owning a dog. embrace the rough patches and the stressful days because at the end of them, you can cuddle up on the couch or in bed with the one creature who knows you better than any other human, and these days are fleeting. so hang on to them.
it’s funny becuase i wrote this up this morning as i was randomly just thinking, and then i came home to find my new fuzzy sweater with a giant hole in it 🙈 oh, how timely. thank you, zuko.
