So many different people tried to convince me not to get you. They tried to warn me of the finances involved and the huge responsibility and time that you would take up. I mean they definitely were right about the finances – it cost me around 6 months of work to afford you, your food, all your toys, etc. But I still don’t regret it for one second, because to me – you were worth all that money and more.
Usually I would be bothered by everyone doubting that I was capable, and I would feel as if I was making the wrong decision. But this time, for the first time, I ignored everyone and went with my gut feeling. I knew that I have always been an animal lover, I have always been comforted by the presence of dogs and I just really enjoy the daily responsibilities that come with owning a dog, such as dog walking, going to puppy playtimes, meeting other dog owners, etc. There is a whole community of people who definitely feel the same way, and it’s great.
It has honestly been even better than I ever imagined it would be. The minute I saw your puppy photo on the breeders website, I just knew that you were meant to be mine. As soon as I saw your ruby colored coat, the name Cooper instantly came to me and it stuck. It took me 6 months of savings and research to find and finally get you. I spoke to millions of different breeders from tons of different states, not just Massachusetts. But as soon as I saw you, I immediately fell in love. I still remember the day I made the official deposit to reserve you… I felt so good and confident in my decision; I was basically on an all-day high. You are an incredible puppy; so loving and so sweet. Also very smart, which is a plus! I enjoy bringing you with me everywhere and showing you off to all my friends and family. Thank you for being the most perfect little pup and companion I could of ever asked for. xo Alivia
Everyone has their thing in life. Things that make them either different, or similar to other people. Things that act as a foundation for bonding and relationship growth. Owning a dog happens to be one of my things. To me, it’s something I enjoy, something that makes me very happy and something that is important to me (also if you haven’t already guessed, this is why I will never date someone who doesn’t like dogs haha). Anyway, my point is that we should never be embarrassed to admit that we are passionate about something, or feel the need to explain to others the reasons why we are passionate about them. Because in the end, all that matters is that they makes us happy.
I know some of you who have read this may think it’s inspiring and sweet, whereas others may think it is corny and kind of silly to write an entire post dedicated to my puppy. By posting this, however, I am trying to make the point that while I am so happy with my decision, some people may not necessarily understand as they don’t really relate. And that is completely okay. Imagine you are a person who is passionate about cars.. I’m sure you would feel extremely happy after you make the decision to purchase your dream car. I can’t drive and I couldn’t name more than three different types of cars, yet I still am able to understand how cars make some people happier than others; and in their opinion, cars are worth the money. Keeping an open mind and appreciate that everyone has things that make them unique, and make them who they are.. and that is what is so great about the world.
