Today is my day to talk about my favorite thing in the world. The thing that brings a smile to my face, warms my heart, and covers me in wet sloppy kisses every day.
And I couldn’t be more thankful for him.
Today I am thankful for Man’s (or woman’s) Best Friend. Our furry, four legged, love machines, dogs.
I come to you as a convert. Once a proclaimed “cat person” I never thought I would grow to love any creature as much as I love my Gunner.
There is something about raising a dog from a puppy, learning and growing with them, that leads to a bond I cannot describe.
No matter how my day went, what’s going on in the world, or how bad I look, he’s there with an approving grin and a wagging tail.
He knows just when to snuggle up to me. He knows how to make me laugh. He knows how to push my buttons, but then be so cute I can’t be mad.
I could not live without my dog. Period. It hurts my heart to think of him growing old and departing this world long before I am ready for him to go.
So today I am thankful for him. Thankful for the time I have had with him so far in this short year and a half and thankful for the many years to come, with my best friend.
