30 Days of Thanks: Day 2
2. I am thankful for our dog, Scotty.
I didn't want to get a dog. I had a dog as a kid and I never felt like I loved her enough. I had a real connection with one of our cats and I loved her more, but I always felt bad about that. Pets are supposed to be like your kids, right? Shouldn't you love them all the same? So I was afraid if we got a dog I wouldn't love it as much as I should.
A) Must have floppy ears
B) Must be house trained
C) Must be cute
D) Can't be a chihuahua
just stands there without whining or trying to get away. We took him out to a fall festival kind of thing where there were lots of people and a few other dogs and he was just perfect. He let the little kids pet him, he didn't bark at anyone, he only tried to jump on people a few times, it was honestly surprising how good he was considering we were there most of the night. I can't believe I didn't want to get him originally. I am so thankful for him now.
