My first dog, a cocker spaniel named Alex taught me compassion and serenity. He came into my life at 8 years old with multiple health problems, many vet visits and chronic ear infections which caused pain and he never complained. He never once even curled his lip at any humans or other animals. He simply lived his life to the fullest while with me. His last moments he snuggled his head into the crook of my arms and breathed his last, never even whimpering once
Jasmine has taught me patience and forgiveness, going from a dog with a rock steady temperament to one with fear issues was a ice bath. The bond I've forged with her is based in love and respect, we both make mistakes but we forgive each other. She needs me 24/7 to feel comfortable and even when asserting her independence looks back at me which melts my heart. I'n truly her "mommy"
Delgado has taught me joy and laughter, he brings so much light to my life. He's my constant shadow, contently watching whatever I do (especially when it comes to preparing food lol). Training him is so easy, he lives to learn and please me at all times. He takes joy in something as simple as a glance in his direction and rewards attention with a doggie grin or big kiss along my cheek. I can't wait to see him in one year, five years, and ten years. While I love my other two with a huge portion of my heart Delgado is my heart dog in the truest sense, I've never regretted adding him to my family. Well there was that first night where he was throwing up, whining, wanting to go out all night, and waking up before dawn ready to play ... Nah not even then
