Do you have animals in your life? If yes, what do they mean to you? If no, why have you opted not to?
I don’t usually blog about my personal life, but today’s Daily Prompt gave me a chance to brag about my adorable boys. 🙂 I am blessed to be owned by two miniature Dachshunds, Lincoln and Teddy (Roosevelt). We adopted Lincoln as a puppy (see my post “Ten Things I Learned From My Puppy“) and quickly realized that he needed a playmate. Like, pronto. Lacking the energy to train another puppy, I found Teddy at a Dachshund rescue through Petfinder.com and it was love at first sight. Teddy was about 5 years old (we think?) when we adopted him, and he has not only been the perfect playmate for Lincoln, but has also been a loving, loyal, wonderful addition to our family. I love both of them equally, but there is something in Teddy’s eyes that tells me that he knows he was rescued and given another chance. I’m sure that if you have a rescued pet, you know what I’m talking about. It absolutely amazes me how love comes full circle when you give it to a dog. They have snuggled with me while I slept, made me laugh with their antics, and licked away my sad tears. They are what love is supposed to look like!
