This little dude is the love of my life…feisty and full of energy when we’re playing, but always there to make me feel better when I’m down.
Technically, I saved his life. But in reality, he is saving mine, every…single…day.
Never underestimate the power of loving something, or someone so much, it aches.
I met him at the Manhattan branch of New York Animal Care and Control. The place is sad and depressing, and I broke down several times in anguish at the nonchalance of some of the employees and in sadness for the many animals that weren’t going to make it, but if you’re patient and determined, you just might find yourself a best friend, a confidante, a family member.
“What if I hadn’t met you.”
