Happiness is a warm puppy.
Happiness is also an old friend.
Tequila my old friend is having a difficult time.
She can't see, can't hear and seems to be losing her direction. She is often sick and her legs tremble some times. For the most part she does as always, and is a faithful companion everywhere I go, we just came home from a walk and she never left my side, I look back only to see she is practically underfoot.
All three of us realize is won't be long before Tequila leaves us.
I know the excitement a new pup adds!
We have done it many times before. I only hope Tequila is here to teach this new dog some old tricks. It won't be long now! We will have a new family member. We get puppies because it is easier to introduce a baby into an existing family - be it a puppy or kitten, animals know it is a baby and respect that and are gentle.
Old or young a dog can be a friend for life, they love us conditionally and never leave us, which is more than I an can say for people I know.
We love our dogs, we can not wait to add another little bundle to our home and if we are lucky Tequila will still also be with us for a bit longer. xox <><
