21 Days...Day 3

It's day 3 today. Today's post isn't going to be a lesson rather something I've learned the last 6 years. 

Life is better with a dog. 

Let me explain. 
If you follow me on any social media sights you've probably seen this already, but six years ago today one of the best things happened. 
My mom and I were on our way to visit with our wonderful friend, or so I thought. When we got to her house she said we have to go, so we hopped in her vehicle. It didn't seem to out of the ordinary. We drove for a little while, and got to this little town, and then my mom was on the phone talking to someone. I thought it was a little weird but hey, I was having fun just being with our friend. Next we pull up to this house. I was thinking we were picking something up, but as we got out of the car we go to the front door, and a lady answers and there is this tiny little Yorkie puppy at her feet, and it was at that moment when I was told this was MY new puppy. At first I didn't know what to think, and then the puppy and I went to the living room, sat on the couch, and bonded. My mom and our friend were visiting with the lady. I was still in shock. I think that lasted for a few days. 
Once I got this puppy home I was so excited. He was mine. I had wished for one for a really long time, and finally I had him. 
To say this was a surprise of a lifetime is an understatement. It was the surprise of a lifetime...and I honestly can not imagine my life without him. 

This is Beaureguard, also known as Bo, or Little Man: 

He is literally my best friend, and here's why; 
When I got him I though I just got a dog, but he is more than that, he has turned out to be like a child, but he's also been amazing with my Cystic Fibrosis. He can sense when I'm sick, when I'm worn out and need to rest, and he can also sense when things just aren't right, and he is always by my side when I do my treatments. The impact that that's had is so wonderful. 

I don't think anyone realized what an amazing impact he'd be in my life, maybe our wonderful friend because she has a Yorkie as well, but I don't know anything better to say to them than Thank You. 

Sometimes the biggest impacts of your are the things you least expect. 

~God Bless
