I have tons of amazing clients that I really need to blog about, but I felt like I needed to take a small moment to acknowledge the new magic in my life – Tara*.
I have had a rough couple of weeks and one night, on my drive home from yoga, I realized that what I needed was a puppy. Maybe I didn’t really need a puppy, but no one seemed to differ in opinion with me. I took the next week or so to browse the world wide web for a small furry thing I could love and take home. I spent hours looking for the right one. The internet had a lot of offer, but I realized that I could only decide once I spent some time the puppy. I had some criteria; I did not want a Chihuahua and I did not want a dog bigger than 15lbs.
My boyfriend and I decided that on Saturday, we would go look and meet some puppies. We told ourselves we wouldn’t decide that day. I had a list of places to go based off of what I found online. Our first stop was to pick up Tara from our friend who had rescued her and was looking for a good home for her. We took Tara around with us as we visited other puppies, and out of all the ones we saw that day, Tara was the one. We decided as soon as we dropped her off with me friend.
She is cute and playful, but she loves to take naps. This was important. If I was going to be working on photos, and calling clients she would have to enjoy just sitting with me. She is a good eater, she can play fetch and she likes most dogs and people (except for my dad unfortunately). She is good for me too. I have to wake up on time, be responsible with my time and care about something else than just myself. Tara is really just what I was looking for in my life right now.
Funny thing – she is probably part Chihuahua and we aren’t entirely sure on her breed, but she could quit possible be over 15lbs. Her paws are pretty big.
Looking forward to the next 10-15 years with this pup. <3
*Tara is the name of the plantation in Gone with the Wind. My favorite movie as a child (strange I know) and favorite book as an adult.
