I currently live without any pets.
My dog Wendy died in 2018 and my cat Princess passed away a little over a year ago.
As much as I want to share my life with animals, I recognize that now isn’t the right time on account of my blind father and mother in heart failure.
The last thing they need is a small creature underfoot.
But more than anything I really want to adopt some pets.
A dog and a cat, for starters.
There’s nothing quite like the love and loyalty of a pooch.
And the right cat can be cool and fun.
I’m here to remind you, now that so many people are working from home and have the time to invest in a 4-legged companion, that there are many pets filling the shelters in desperate need of homes.
All my animals have been rescues adopted out of the shelter.
Both my white german shepherds were rescues and they were STELLAR dogs.
Oh sure, there was some separation anxiety and a little leash aggressiveness that I had to work at to overcome but in the end, I got the most loyal and loving companion animals you could imagine.
And my cats have all been great as well, from Princess on down to Riff Raff.
In any case, it’s worth it to point out that although you can’t BUY happiness, you sure can rescue it.
Adopt, don’t shop!
