How dogs helped me recover

Dogs or doggies or cute little bundles of love.

We’ll stick with dogs.

I recently had a massive accident and I fell 3.5 floors into concrete. While people treated me well, I felt like dogs became more of my calling after this episode of my life. Sure, kids were nice but had no deep love from me like dogs did. Dogs became my babies.


Answer: I have no idea.

I loved the bigger ones like Labradors or Australian Working Dogs. They were so cute and were always so happy, dogs never seemed sad, even if they felt it. I just loved patting them and their pleasure from the pats, sorry but sure ain’t a human thing. Be excited if a random pats you, do not be scared.

I have a confession to make. I do not have a dog. I know, I can hear you dog lovers: DO NOT HATE ME!

I am getting a dog in a couple of years but I don’t know which one! I love bigger dogs but I live in an inner-city apartment and I should get a small one. However, I love bigger dogs with their dirtiness, licking and excitability.

I noticed lately that I see lovely dogs in the street and I stop their owners. I ask if I can have a pat and I enjoy the moment far more than the pet itself. I always ask if they are aggressive but they are usually so nice ☺

I am thinking of colours and I think I am going for chocolate. Yes, I love the idea of the dog being so delicious that even his coat is a yummy colour. Plus, I have a unique obsession with chocolate so having my dog that colour tells a deeper story.

I love the over-excitedness of dogs. Why are they so excited? No reason, life is just great. I love the positivity that they give off that many humans just can’t because they are so worried about life. Be less human, more dog.

So eventually I will get a dog, hug them always and let them know how special they are. They will not care what I say as English is a second language. If you have a dog, love him or her lots!
