Now I can sleep soundly, knowing that the presence of my puppy is with me. In the future, I will be more protective of my dog. I will take more care when I let him out, and I will be aware of the chuck click sound made when the gate is not closed. I realize now that precious things need great
In 2008, I spent the summer with my Uncle, Aunt and 2 cousins in Missouri. They picked me up at the airport, and the car ride was filled with discussion about a puppy they had just gotten 2 days prior. It was explained that my cousins wanted a dog since their friends’ family had gotten a dog recently. My Uncle, happy to oblige, stopped at a neighbor’s house one day, who was giving away puppies they could not care for, as is common in small town America. He picked out the cutest one and went on his way. The family was so happy to have “Roxy” in their home and on their farm.
It was a bright sunny day my family and I just adapted a beautiful lab mixed with a great dane. We were in my mom’s van heading to Petco. My family and I were going to Petco to get all the supplies my new puppy needs. So, we pull in to the parking lot of Petco.
At last we made it. We were at the place. I was jumping with excitement. Then we went in the place there was 5 puppies in the house. They were so fuzzy. Since we took them outside one of them followed me and my dad. That’s how we pick out our puppy. On the way home, we were passing him around so everyone would see him. When it was my turn he fell asleep on my lap. My mom said to just leave him on my lap so he wouldn’t wake up.
Dogs and humans have been best friends for about 15,000 years. We just recently lost our best friend, Charlie. Without him, days at home are long and lonely, and Annie and Gus are not exactly the best child dogs. Annie is hard to play with, because she’s violent and a spaz and Gus doesn’t play. We need a younger dog to satisfy our needs of fun and cuddling. The perfect candidate for that job is a 9 week old Border Collie puppy at the Pets R Inn pet shop. He’s mellow, cuddly, and playful once he gets used to you. He’s the perfect dog for our family.
She was a lot of fun to play with and she was very energetic. We did not get her that day, but the employees told us that the dog we were interested in was going to be at Petsmart the next day. We went to Petsmart and we were going to make the final decision if we were going to get her. My sister and I really wanted her but my dad was hesitant about the idea of getting her. He did not know if we were ready for another dog. My sister and I really wanted her so we exclaimed “ we will do everything to take care of the dog!”
When they told me about adopting a furry little creature, I was completely ecstatic; I loved dogs and had wanted one ever since I first tried to pet one on the street. This time, I was completly fine with my parents making a decision for me; now this was the best surprise. So a week later, I convinced my parents to visit the nearest dog shelter. As we entered, we saw about 20 enclosure each containing a dog. None of the dogs looked or sounded alike; some were fluffy, spotted, tiny, or even bigger than me. We walked down the hall of dogs and I spotted a furious, little puppy. I read the card on the front of the gate and found that this adorable dog was a poodle and his name was Gucci; the dog was also only a year and two months. But the most interesting part about the small puppy was not on his information card. Instead, it was on his front left leg; his leg was encased in a bright red cast, so he was healing from a broken leg. Soon after, my parents and I realized that Gucci was healing from something much worse than a broken leg.
It was an ordinary Friday afternoon, I was playing outside with Peyton Becker when a bright orange chichiwawa walked up the driveway. He cautiously came toward us and stopped. We tried to pet him, but he was too frightened, I knew because he had tucked his tail between his legs. Next we tried treats but I guess he had a treatphobia or something cause he still wouldn't budge to let us pet him. By then we gave up and Peyton went home. The next day Lauren and I sprung out of bed to see if he was still there. Once we made it to the back door he was still there infact right at the back door begging with his big brown eyes to come in. We needed a plan to keep him. We begged all afternoon, until we’d forgotten about him being outside, we rushed out the back door to find him laying in the grass, we sat down next to him and pet him until we realized we were petting him!
this little boy had just turned 6, and to was celebrating his birthday with his parents and friends, they lived in Florida and were big businessmen and woman, they were celebrating mike’s birthday in the harbor, where big ships come to deliver goods. Mike had always loved the ocean and the sea, though he also liked animals of all kinds. He personally picked this place for his party. How? Well, there were pictures of paces laid out on the floor and he was to pick which looked the best to him. Now, his parents really did not like mike and were planning to send him to an orphanage to be adopted by someone who actually wanted him. They were far too busy to give him the care he needed and mike was ruining their image because he was not a formal child, he loved to play in the mud and create things out of the trash.
Donned in pink and white a woman floated to my room the next day. She came in with anxious steps as she tightly held a small beige pup in her hands. Brown eyes searched for me and when I was found, the woman took a step back and dropped the pup. With a loud yelp the dog scurried away from his owner and hid under one of the satin sofas that decorated the area. The woman gazed at me with a fleeting look of disbelief before she flung her slender arms around me and hugged me tightly.
The barking and talking of various people, and the pet owners grooming their pet’s fur, revolted me. I started walking swiftly, trying to leave Ali’s Pet Shop behind as a poodle looked up at me with her vulnerable eyes. It was still a baby I guessed it was no older than a month. Through the glistening window upon the measly patch of sunlight, the fluffy white poodle with black patches and bright blue eyes, gently placed it’s paw of the glass of the window. My heart melted at that moment, I kissed my hand and aligned my hands to her paw. For few seconds, I stood there in the same position. Then the store keeper came and took the poodle, my eyes blinked twice as I turned and continued to saunter towards the Seven
so long. Had him since he was a pup. I herded sheep with him. He said
When we got home I heard barks coming from the yard,I thought that was the neighbor's dogs buddy, a German shepherd,and Lucy, a golden retriever. But I decided to check the barking out, I open the door to the backyard.I saw a gorgeous chocolate lab with a ocean blue eyes,running towards me.I bend down to pet her silky fur,I could feel the warm sun on my face as I played with the puppy.I saw my dad smiling at me from the big oak tree,I cradled the puppy in my arms and walked over to my dad.I asked him “Is this puppy mine?” he
My mom asked me for the first time time in a long time”Do you want your very own pet,”since i was eight years old i have wished that i wanted a dog for my first pet, and the time finally came.So i answered back to her and i of course said “YES” i want my very first pet.So i went to go put my shoes on and as i was putting them on i was thinking back when i was six years old that i begged my mom to get me a dog.I put on my shoes and waited in the car for her,I eagerly wanted someone to play with instead of playing with no one.I could imagine how much fun i would have playing fetch with him and having him running after me because i had his toy,those would have been good moments, but now i can finally experience how those moments would feel the opposite way.The day had come.
The next morning he woke up, blazed through the house and out the door like any other day, and a year and a half later, he is still the same dog that walked up to me as a stray in a gas station parking lot and when I went in, refused to come in with me, but waited patiently for me to come back out.
