My unforgettable experience living with an intelligent dog was a rewarding one and I wanted to share my experience with others who might enjoy living with a canine.
When I was a child we lived on a farm. There was a puppy we called Ruby that we used to play with on a regular basis. She was so smart, fun and obedient, she would wait until we were done with our homework for the day and then sneak up behind us when we were at our room in the house, give us a good lick and scurry off.
Later on in life, we moved to town. A local family adopted Ruby and named their beagle puppy Riley. Ruby was shocked to see Riley as she had no idea she was his mother. Ruby and I still stayed in touch and she would bring us treats when she could hear us. One night we were watching the news and saw a lady holding her dog. We were in awe. Ruby said, look mommy is holding her dog like a puppy. It made us laugh because we know dogs can hold their puppy status, but we had never seen a pup held.
We were so moved and the lady responded, “Oh yes, I know what you mean. My puppy is like that, but I am still growing. But don’t worry, you can tell Riley about her puppy.” We were moved and were taken aback by the kindness of the puppy and mom were showing us. We are grateful to the breeders, owners and people who give a dog a second chance, even if it is a puppy and the people who adopt and give a dog a home to live with us. We are indebted to all.
If you take the time to learn about your breed, you will come to appreciate your pet more and gain a deeper appreciation for them. You will be thankful for their kindness and have the hope to provide a better life for them.
