Dogs fill a void in our personalities that we didn’t know existed. Once you’ve lived with a pet, its hard to live without one around. Thats what led me to my gorgeous Diva.
I brought her home when she was 40 days old. She’s a pup from my cousin/friend’s dog. One from a litter of 10 absolutely heart-melting lab pups. I fell in love the moment I saw her. Diva was just too much cuteness packed into one little body.
Zappy is cool, calm and collected. She is extremely affectionate but very choosy about who she shares her fondness with. She loves to be left alone.
If Zappy was in high school, she’d be one of the cool kids.
Diva is one big fur ball of affection and excitement. One handful of food and she’d fall in love with anyone. She begs for attention and petting. She’s unaware of how big she’s gotten and still tries to crawl up onto my lap.
Diva taught me to love unconditionally, enjoy every meal like its your last, and display childlike innocence even when you are a mother of 7!
Leaving Diva and moving to Muscat was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. I wept for longer with her than I did at my actual Bidaai (post marriage farewell).
I’m sure she knew I was leaving…nothing else would justify all that overfeeding.
When I got back home that evening, she had made herself a seat in the hole she had dug up and had already delivered her 1st pup!
First time mom and first time mid-wife . We looked at each other cluelessly and led each other through the process. This is a special bond I share with Diva and her pups. One that cant be compared with any other relationship.
The pups grew well over the next few days. I had aspiring pet parents come in everyday.
We decided to keep one and give away the other pups to friends and family that we could visit and see the dogs grow up.
Love, kindness, compassion and empathy are not emotions that can be taught. Experience the unconditional love your pets have to offer and you will slowly realize that they’ve changed you forever.
I’ve fallen hard in Puppy Love and I know this affairs going to be one to remember.
