This girl. My daily joy.
Sometimes I look at her pretty little face, which is becoming more gray by the day, and feel overcome with emotion. To many, it probably sounds silly to hear that I owe so much to this dog, but it’s true.
I adopted her at a point in my life where I was lonely and confused. I was a full-time student, working full-time as a server, and living with my ex-boyfriend. The relationship was mentally abusive in every single way and adopting Zoey was the catalyst in ending it. Had I not seen how cruel he was to her, a kind and loving animal, as well as me or had her company when I needed to leave after a heated argument I don’t know that I would have seen the hope or found the courage to leave as soon as I did.
She is my loving and resilient little love and has been the best confidant I could have at my side these past six years. I’m so proud of our journey and all that we’ve accomplished, and have yet to accomplish, together.
