You ever meet a girl and start to feel the sparks of attraction ignite, only to realize that she is not the least bit interested in one of the most important things in your life? Sure you have, and you’ve tried to work it out and make adjustments and concessions, but you eventually realize that it was doomed from the beginning. You split up and go your separate ways….. all because she didn’t like your dog.
The problem always starts when you take a girl over to your place for the first time. You open the door and there is the love of your life, wagging her tail and brushing up against you, so happy to see you. Your furry companion is curious and begins to sniff your new friend, wagging all the time. “Oh wait, who is this? Is this your new friend mom? She smells nice. I think I will give her a kiss.” Then it happens; your date does what you have been worrying about all night long; the slow turn to the side get-away-from-me move. This move, perfected by those who have no interest in dogs, is a dead give-away that your night will probably end with you snuggling up to a cold nose instead of a warm body.
It’s not easy finding that special girl who will snug up your dog on the first date, or cuddle on the sofa with both of you while you watch a movie; nope, those women are few and far between. Well guess what ladies, I found one. I found the perfect girl. That’s right! Not only is she smart,funny, and an amazing kisser, but she also loves my dog. You heard me; she loves my dog. How perfect is that?!
My girl dotes on my dog Emma as though she had raised her from a pup herself. “Do you think Emma is ok? I don’t want her to get too hot, should I put some ice in her water? Maybe Emma would like a special breakfast this morning.” That’s right, she loves my dog. She is always aware of Emma’s needs, and does everything she can to keep her happy and safe. She loves my dog.
As fate would have it, I married that sweet girl, and now she does everything she can to keep both me and Emma happy and safe.
