Destiny plays a role in life and everything does “happen for a reason”. As a kid my family gave away my first Chihuahua,Yoshi, to another family because of lack of time for taking care. In my early teens, we got a Doberman, Leo, but was born with parasites so had to be put down. We then got a second Doberman, Tyson, which had to be put down due to a severe infection from a dog bite. My latest dog was wonderful but I was irresponsible and didn’t dedicate enough time. Ten years later, experiences and obstacles happened. Things weren’t going “according to plan” in life and I was getting anxious and stressful when I RARELY do. I always had this feeling of emptiness no matter how many people were around me. The first day I went to “choose” my dog there were plenty more puppies. Shiva was the remaining female. She was the quietest and had the calmest temperament and followed me around when I wasn’t paying attention because I was focused on getting a male like all my past dogs were. The following day, all puppies were asleep except for one, Shiva was seated and stared at me. “She knows you chose her. Dogs have senses that humans don’t have” said the breeder as we were talking. I promised myself that I wouldn’t make the same mistake as Tyson. Every day I look forward to go back home and be greeted by my dog full of joy. I’m on a stage of my life where I prefer being around my dog rather than people. We can learn so much from an animal. As cheesy as it may sound, Shiva plays a big role in my life and I cannot imagine how my life would be without her in the future. Dog owners can relate to everything I say. Sadly, the lifetime of a dog is not long like humans but those short years are there to fill us with happiness, life lessons and memories. Showing a lot of pictures and videos of my dog can be seen as obsessive because people only see a dog o but for me SHE’s my “my child, my babe, my confidant”. Shiva chose me.
