Over two years ago a nutty rescue dog entered my life. From the moment I met Shiva, I didn’t think I was ready for the changes she would bring. Naturally, I let my husband convince me to adopt her anyway.
Unsurprisingly, my first thoughts had been correct. Despite all the books I read before we brought her home from the shelter, we were not preapred in the least. Luckily for all of us, it turned out this crazy mutt was exactly what we needed. With the help of a wonderful trainer, multiple books, and very understanding neighbours, my dog Shiva has blossomed into one of the most special dogs I have ever known.
Why another dog blog?
I decided to start blogging about my dog for many reasons. These reasons revolve primarily around two things:
1. If I have a place to write about my dog’s antics, I won’t have to bore all of my friends, co-workers, and mail carriers any more
2. Eventually Shiva may mellow and I’m going to want to look back at the exciting days of her youth
Of course, I’m probably not capable of shutting up and I don’t think my dog will ever understand the meaning of mellow. So I guess there’s really no point to this blog other than the adorable photos.
Is that not reason enough?
