Full circle

When I was a child I got my first puppy and promptly named her tickles! Years that followed were filled with other cats and dogs. Animals brought a certain comfort and unconditional love.  It was the norm to have pets in our loving and warm household.

Then I married, had children and moved to the middle east, where we lived for 16 years. Pets were frowned upon and even forbidden in our household. When we moved back to the United States the same rule applied and it was a scary concept to even imagine having a pet.

Finally after ten years of living back home my kids helped me and supported me in fulfilling this dream. Last March I adopted my Sophie. In  many ways my life has come full circle and I am getting back to the real me! These photos are of my constant companion and sweet baby! She is beautiful, smart and feisty!

    • Yes it feels great! Osama and Jacki have a dog named Kenny and whenever they visited I felt so nervous that a dog was in the house. I lived in fear of even that! He was so mad when he found out that they had a dog.

        • Well he also would have gone crazy if he thought it was in our home. I was so scared and now seems ridiculous!

          • It is such a big step to eliminate such thoughts. It is shocking when looking back at how they can still be holding in their grip.

  11. Sophie is a cutie. Pets, especially dogs, have curative powers. No wonder there are service animals.

  15. Aww, I am happy for you, Lynn. Pet’s are awesome companions. Since our sweet 19-year-old kitty crossed The Rainbow Bridge, we will be adopting a new kitty once we get back from our trip. We miss her so.
