Dogs are just the cutest things. They are also “man’s best friend.”
I have had a dog almost my whole entire life, ever since I was six months, I believe. Some were puppies, others grown dogs. My favorite dog of all…our dog, Shadow!
He is such a great dog. Shadow is great with kids, hasn’t been destructive, and doesn’t wander to far from our house.
I remember when Shadow was just a wee little pup. He was part of a litter of pups from across the street at our old house. Oh…they were just the sweetest things. My brother and I loved them. They were so tiny. So fluffy. So playful. Eventually my brother and I were able to sneak all the pups over to our house and we would play with them for a long time. Our hideout was usually under our deck.
On occasions, my mom would call to us, while we were underneath playing with all those puppies, and let us know that she was letting out our big down, Simon. He was a brute of a dog. So as soon as we heard that we would get the puppies to leave so our dog wouldn’t hurt them.
Then one day, we found out that our neighbors were giving away the pups for free. We just had to have one.
My mom and dad had a yard sale one Saturday and they couldn’t figure out why all the puppies kept coming over to our house and wanting to play with Micah and I. (She was still clueless…) It was that day that we got another dog…a puppy. Our Shadow.
He has been with us for thirteen years now, and is one of the best dogs we know.
