I always tell my friends that life is certainly better when you have a dog to come home to. When you are in the middle of a life-crisis with no one to lean on to, that dog will be there to listen to you. It’s true! For all my readers who share this beautiful relationship know the feeling, and for readers who don’t, you must experience this once in life. It’s unimaginable. Unconditional. The amount of attachment coupled with the love will change your life for sure. You will definitely tend to be happier than ever before. For people who feel alone or are going through troubled times, I would insist on getting home a little pup and experience the magic. I have a beautiful Labrador who is now 11 and we call her Teez.
Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend, probably never owned a dog.
- My First Ever
The fact that she is the first dog that I have ever had, she is special. I can say, with experience, that she is one of the best things which I have experienced in life. The first time when she followed me without me having called her, the first time she cuddled up, the first time I cried and talked my heart out to her, the first time I had to clean her poop (wasn’t so exciting though), all these things made it special for me. I had not experienced this feeling ever before I met my husband who introduced me to Teez.
I haven’t met a living being as calm as her in my life. Trust me when I say this! She is so calm, so patient and so content that you cannot stop yourself from falling in love with her. She’s super intelligent and rarely barks. The only things which can irritate her are kids and voice of a guitar. Now, that’s strange, isn’t it?
- Bundle of Love
Ask any dog owner and you would know that nothing can give you more love than a dog. I second that too. She is a bundle of unconditional and endless love. Even if I would want to play around with her, she will wake up in the middle of the night and be happy about it.
- Cheers me up
No matter how hard a day it was for me, as soon as I enter home, she acts like it’s the most exciting thing to happen and I feel so better. She cannot talk to me, but her gestures depict everything so loud and clear to me, so if I want to share my sadness with her, she’s always there. She would probably hang around with me, won’t leave my side, sleep on my feet, she will do everything to please me. Now, who wouldn’t cheer up after all that pampering.
- Trusts me blindly
She trusts me blindly and knows that I won’t hurt her ever. Every time she nods at anything I tell her, it makes me fall in love with her.
- Stress Buster
Even at times when I don’t want to talk to anyone or want to be left out alone, she would never leave my side and will keep wagging her tail. I don’t know how but she knows when I am upset or when I want company. Without any verbal conversation, I feel her company and her constant support. Any kind of stress or pain, she can let it vanish with her little cute gestures.
- Better than most humans
In my life experience of around 27 long years, I have met a lot of new people, got to know them, but trust me, Teez is better than most of them. She is more “humanly” than most so called “humans” around. She knows how to forgive, she knows how to let go. She is the best!
- Gets insanely happy when she meets me after a long time
When I get back home after a vacation, she gets happy to another level. It’s so delightful to look at her crazy moves. I guess in addition to being happy after seeing me, she probably feels a relief that I will play around with her and she’ll have company.
- She will be restless till she finds me
Another interesting fact which makes me love Teez so much is that if she doesn’t find me around and again I don’t know how but she knows that I am at home, she will run around restlessly to find me and even after all that trouble which I give her, she will cuddle up like a little kid with no resentments.
- I am never bored
With her around, I can never be bored. Like literally! Even during those sleepless nights, she is the one keeping up with me and we share the mid-night snacks together. We have our little parties even when no one is around.
