The Dog


My husband chose this dog at the local animal shelter. On our visit I fell in love with a sweet, brown lab mix who was slobbering all over me. But my husband was on the floor, trying to coax this dog from the corner of her cage. She was shaking and terrified. It is not often my husband insists on having his way, but this time he did. So we took this puppy home. She is the first dog I have ever had. The beginning of the journey was very hard. She was terrified of traffic, swings at the playground and plastic bags. With a little time and a little love, she’s come out of her shell. Boy I sure do love this dog. Somedays my husband says I love the dog more than him. To this I can only reply “you chose her!”
