I love my dog, he is up there with one of the best things to ever happen to me. Sometimes he is annoying and a giant pain, but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. Almost two years ago now we adopted Yogi from a shelter, I don’t know the level of mistreatment he endured but I hope it is now a distant memory for him. This is dedicated to you, Yogi!

Unconditional Love

Yes, this is so corny but my dog loves me without limits and without exceptions. As soon as he wakes up in the morning, the first thing he wants to do is lay in my arms and give me kisses. At night he lays between me and my boyfriend until he falls asleep, he is constantly within arms reach. If he wants a nap in the middle of the day but can’t fall asleep, he will lay in my lap and lick my hand until he drifts to sleep.

He Knows

When I am upset, he can sense it. I can’t tell you how many times this dog has licked my tears away. If I start to feel down he sits on my lap, it doesn’t matter if he’s in another room. He can also sense when I’m happy, if I’m in a good mood he’s ready to play. If he does something bad, like an accident or tries to tear up something, I just have to look at him and he knows he is wrong.

Where I Go, He Follows

Since we got him he has had separation anxiety which honestly breaks my heart, whenever we leave we can hear him claw at the door and bark. Not only is it an issue when we leave the house, but if I go to another room. If I go upstairs I’d be willing to bet he will follow me. I feel so bad that he’s constantly worried about if we are going to abandon him, but I also think he believes that we are his pack.

Random Kiss Attacks

Normally these “attacks” happen after he wakes up, which leads me to believe that he has bad dreams. He either dreams that something bad happens to me or something bad happens to him. Yes I mentioned our morning cuddle sessions, but this happens in the middle of the night, after naps, and other random times.
