So I haven’t always loved dogs. When I was a little girl, I was almost bitten by two big German Shepards who got out of the fence diving my and my neighbour’s house. I vied for a cat when I was little; my cat was an orange Tabby named Peaches, who was so cuddly- considering he was a cat. (Not to be a hater!!)
But as the years have gone by I have realized I am more of a dog girl. I recently adopted a chihuahua pug who is the sweetest little dog you will ever meet. While we go out walking I often get stopped because- like myself, I would like to be friends with everyone, and b unlike myself she is a tiny 11 pound dog. My beautiful dog JoJo is the most loyal dog you would probably ever meet. I have been sick the past week, and she has stayed close to me, lying in my bed all day because I couldn’t get out of bed. When I would get up she would follow me, just to be sure that everything was okay. Somehow she knows that something is up.
Besides being protective, JoJo loves to cuddle, play around, and go to Starbucks with me. Oh yeah, and she likes to go for walks- although I have to encourage her a bit because she is a little bit lazy. 😛
Living with a debilitating chronic illness is sometimes unbearable, but JoJo brings happiness to my life. I can just scoop her up and cuddle her like a little baby. I do believe that it has been proven that contact with an animal improves mental health symptoms. I am just so glad to have JoJo, because I can tell her anything, and she seems to understand what I am going through.
In short, thanks JoJo. You’re amazing.
Love you all! xox
