I would not expect everyone to enjoy the lottery-type success I have had in finding the perfect match in a dog. If your experience is even close to what mine has been, then yes, your life will definitely change for the better. And that means that the dog’s life you are rescuing will also change for the better. For every bit of love you give them, they will return it 100-fold, at least.
In closing, I would ask that you go back to the top of this story and read the quote there again. Additionally, as you consider adopting a dog, or need to be reminded about the one that you’ve already got, remember this: we all have busy lives; family, friends, jobs, hobbies, etc. – so many things to keep us busy and occupied as the hours and days and weeks fly by. Your dog has you – maybe only you — so you are mostly his whole world.
Why do our dogs get so excited when we come home? Because whether it has been all day long or just a couple hours, it is an eternity to them; they have been patiently, (forever), waiting to be played with, to be touched, to be talked to, to be loved. You are their world. Be sure they are a big part of yours.
