Well....this may be long, so.....be prepared xD
Anyway, almost three months ago we had to put down my dog Sunflower whom I'd had since I was seven. She'd been diagnosed with cancer January and there wasn't mush we could do save for take care of her as best we could and wait until the time came for her to go. It was very difficult and a very emotional time for me, only the second dog I'd ever had in my life and she'd been with me for over ten years. So I'm sure you can imagine how devastated I was. Immersing myself in my tanks, I decided that I didn't want another dog for some time....
Well about a month-a month and a half ago, we found that our neighbors dog had had puppies(no way to tell when she'd had them exactly)....however we had no clue where the neighbors were, they'd seemed to have disappeared. It was extremely hot, up in the 90s and 100s, and fearing the life of both mother dog and her puppies we began giving her water, then food when the people didn't come back and it looked like she had gone out hunting. As much as I hate to admit it, I became attached to the little things.
However the people soon came back and we ceased caring for mother dog. We had kind of hoped to maybe take a puppy if they were going to give them away(there were around 7 and definitely no way to tell what breeds), but a while passed without a word from the neighbors. I returned to my fish and got over the hope of possibly getting a puppy, reminding myself that i wasn't quite ready for one.
However, I'm called downstairs today and what do I see sitting on the floor in front of me?
Her name is Aurora
My dad said that while he was out working on the fence, they called him over and offered him any puppy he wanted as a thanks for taking care of mother dog while they were going through some tough times
I was so surprised and shocked that I cried
I still can't believe that we have another dog.
Just thought I'd share
Thanks for putting up with my rambling xD
