Tomorrow Dan and I will be celebrating exactly one year since we adopted Jenny, our maltipoo. To think she was found roaming the NY streets, abandoned by her previous owners is beyond me. It makes me extremely happy to know she is safe and loved and now has the chance at a wonderful life.
When I first laid eyes on her, I knew she had to be mine. Of course there were other cute dogs in the bunch but something told me Jenny was the one. And to this day I know in my heart I made the best decision to take her home. She has been such a positive addition to our family, bringing joy and happiness to all of us everyday. She is like my little baby and I love her to death.
On another celebratory note, our other dog Olive is turning 6 years old on Sunday. I have had her since she was 4 months old and must say she has grown into such an interesting and unique individual. Her personality is explosive, to say the least, and she has aged very slowly. She’s still as spunky as she always was.
I had the same experience with Olive that I had with Jenny. All it took was one look and I knew she was the puppy for me. Out of all the dogs in the pet shop, she stood out. I just can’t imagine life without her.
The fact that both girls get along and have built their own relationship with each other, put the biggest smile on my face. People told me not to get another girl because there are always problems but I didn’t listen. I knew it would all work out and it did. Our home is full of life because of these two and I couldn’t ask for anything more. This weekend is full of celebrations and thanks to Olive and Jenny, I can be the happiest mom to the two best dogs in the world.
