The Perfect Pup
I have been thinking about getting a dog off and on for almost a year. I have been through a lot of hard times over the last two and a half years and have really struggled to be happy despite my best efforts.
None the less, one night I was so inspired to get online and look at dogs for adoption in my area. I had decided long ago that if I got a dog I wanted a Pit-bull mix. So I began my search in my state for Pitt-bull mixes up for adoption.
Several links later I found the perfect dog. She was the perfect size, and the description given about her personality and energy level were exactly what I wanted out of a dog (and she has blue eyes!) She was literally perfect, but she already had a pending adoption. I emailed the rescue she was at and expressed my interest only to find out she was getting adopted in the next few days. I told them that if the adoption didn’t work out to please let me know. After that I briefly looked for other dogs, with absolutely no comparison.
I remember walking to my kitchen saying to myself I do not even want a dog unless it is that one, she was so perfect for me, and exactly what I wanted. This was right before I went out of town for a month and I forgot about it, but not before telling myself that if I was meant to have that dog, then I would. About two weeks later, after not thinking about the dog at all and being occupied by work, I got an email saying that the adoption didn’t work out and that my dog was back and waiting for me!
Upon my return to town I adopted the dog, she apparently had a thing “against” men but she took right to me when we met, licking all over my face! We are now living happily together and she truly is an awesome dog! This gave me confidence that if something is meant to be, it will be, just believe it and then let it go for God to do the work. The worst thing you can do is sit there dwelling on it and worrying about it because that only holds YOU back in ways you can’t imagine.
