Dear Opal and Mindy,

A Lesson to Live in the Moment…

As I sit here writing this note to you, I can’t help but notice how calm and peaceful you both look snuggled up next to me on the couch. I can’t imagine the conditions you both experienced in those awful puppy mills just a few years ago. I won’t dwell on this in my message to you because I am certain you both have forgotten those awful memories. You both give new definition to the quote ‘live in the moment’ and it has been a lesson to me ever since Dad and I adopted you.

Opal: You are the kindest, sweetest and most loving creature I have ever met. A squirrel could cross your path and you would do nothing but sniff and lick it because you could never harm another animal or human. You warm my heart when you wait at the front door for me and I love it when you follow my every move when I’m at home. Your company means more to me than you know. Thank you for being such a loyal and loving companion.

Mindy: Thank you for trusting me and Dad. I know it hasn’t been an easy road for you, but you improve everyday and for that we are so proud of you. We love your ‘hard knocks’ persona, but have learned that underneath that bundle of fur is a dog that just wants to be loved. You have trusted us enough to cuddle on the couch and in bed at night and have quickly learned the joys of going for a walk and being curious with your surroundings. With time, you will rehabilitate to be just like ‘sissy’ and we know you will be at your happiest. Until then, continue snuggling and being the loving companion you already are.

In closing, I’d like to thank you for the love you have given me over the years. Words can’t begin to express my gratitude. Here are my promises to you: A home that is safe and comfortable, bowls filled with food, treats for good behavior, a warm place for you on the couch and bed, and absolute unconditional love. Thank you for bringing such joy to our lives.

Mommy (and Daddy)
