He doesn’t know it’s his gotcha day. He doesn’t know the way he changed my world, or the purpose he brings me. He doesn’t know his cancer had a choke hold on my lungs. He doesn’t know I'm on a mission because of him. To him, every moment is our first. Every moment, when he looks into my eyes and our souls touch, it's as special as the first. So he may not know it’s the anniversary of the day he came around the corner, wilted and beaten or the day where he sat precariously close to the car window on his freedom ride home. But I do, and I'm going to celebrate it. I will always have a deep, unwavering appreciation for his will to live and my will to search.
Did you know it took 9 months for me to find Laker? Yes, the time of a typical human gestation, it took me to find my dog. I felt the call and searched high and low, day in and out. I visited shelters and rescues of all kinds, went to adoption days all over the county, I even took dogs out for walks and over night sleepovers. All for some Universe interference of "Yes, but not right now”. I believe the nights I spent looking for dogs online, the weekends I spent searching and the work breaks I spent dreaming, all propelled Laker’s spirit toward mine, like a beacon to a blind ship in the black velvet night.
We both took part in our meeting of each other. Both parties responsible to a magnetic interchange between souls. I will always have ambition, and I will always answer the calls, because you never just know what other gift that is magnetized by your soul that is out there waiting for you to just look.
I didn’t know the fulfillment he would bring, or the authenticity I had to give, or the truth I had yet to live. But he did. Our souls did.
