B is for Blue…

B is for Blue…

Blue is a nine-month-old puppy that we adopted in December.  I chose him for letter B because he has changed my life tremendously. We went to the shelter a few weeks before we adopted him to look at the dogs but the shelter was closed. We didn’t really talk about getting a dog for weeks after that day. We went looking for an older small dog since I had never had any type of relationship with one. I was a little hesitant about getting the dog but wanted to make the sacrifice for my partner.

We showed up at the shelter and looked at numerous dogs. They barked and did everything to get noticed. Blue stood quietly and even turned away from us. Before we left we took him for a walk. We left that day without a dog. The next afternoon, I missed Blue. They told us he was still there and that if someone else showed up before us it would be their dog. I drove 65 mph in a 35 mph zone to get there. We showed up and took him to the store for toys, a crate, a bed, etc.

I need to reiterate that I had no relationship with a dog EVER. I never held a dog leash before Blue. I never touched a dog before Blue. I was always uncomfortable around dogs before we brought him home. Blue was rescued and was not euthanized because we saved him that day. However, he rescued us as well. He brought something to our home that was missing. The two of us were very happy but he has catapulted our happiness to another level.

According to the shelter he was in four homes in the first six months of his life. We are baffled and wonder at times why he was not wanted. Aside from his separation anxiety he is the perfect dog. Then we are reminded that if he hadn’t had those experiences we wouldn’t have him in our lives. His journey occurred so he could change my life too.

Do I like all dogs now? No but I feel more comfortable around them. And yes, that’s because of Blue. He has touched my heart in a way that I never knew an animal could. Thanks Blue!!!!

    Hey, I didn’t know you were doing A to Z. I’m doing it too. I love dogs, grew up with them. Sounds like you and Blue were meant for each other.
