Why I Love My Dog
by Melony Osterhoudt
Once upon a time, I considered myself a “cat person”. That was until a sweet little miniature Shih Tzu by the name of “Rocky” came into my life. He was so small that he could fit into the palm of my hand but his personality was large as a giant. I don’t think I have ever loved a little dog so much and can’t imagine a life without him. This is my story and all of the reasons that I love my dog.
I love my dog because there is no human being, including my child that is that glad to see me. No matter how bad my day is, when I get home there he is to greet me. He is so excited, happy and with tail wagging I could swear there is a smile on his little face. I am met with that same enthusiasm whether gone for a day or just a few minutes. Not to mention, he give the sweetest kisses ever!
I love my little killer because no one is going to knock on my door, break into my house or even close a car door outside without my little dog with a big dog voice alerting me to the intrusion. No only does he protect me from strangers, he protects me from my own children. For some reason he does not want my youngest one to get anywhere near me. If my little dog and me are watching TV on the bed, my youngest will get ran off if he dares attempts to sit down. I am well guarded.
I love my little buddy because even when I don’t feel like it, he makes me exercise. We go for a walk everyday and sometimes against my will, a run. I get down in the floor practically every night and we “wrestle” and he always wins. I get my little workout with our exciting game of tug of war and sometimes hide and seek. I playfully get attacked on a daily basis by little monster.
In the dark of night, snuggling has taken on a whole new meaning with my little fur ball curled up next to me. When the day has ended, I can rely on my little dog to curl up with me and go to sleep and I must say, snores louder than a man. I also might add, that my little fellow gladly takes the place of the morning alarm, cause he wakes me like clock work at 7 a.m. even on Saturday. I need to teach him to sleep in.
I love my little dog and I am so thankful for the companionship and love. My children are getting older now and gaining in their independence. My little dog will still let me hold him, sleep with him, take care of him and doctor all of his little boo boos. I have no doubt; there is a place in heaven for these animals that bring so much to our lives.
