How a Dog has Changed my Life!
I grew up on a farm with tons of animals, so I always had the responsibility of taking the dogs out and feeding the kitties. As I grew older and moved out I couldn’t find any apartments that allowed pets, so I never thought about getting a pet in my adult life. Until I moved into a house and wanted to add a member to my family, that is when I found Lilly.
Lilly has changed my life for the better, my anxiety seemed worse than ever until Lilly showed me that my anxiety was holding me back from so many opportunities and making me worry and stress about things that shouldn’t be stressed about. She helped me to learn to live in the moment and to just enjoy life. Lilly has also helped me become more aware of my anxiety. I have started doing an exercise routine and it’s helping me become a more healthy person by taking walks and hikes, which Lilly enjoys and benefits from also. She’s also one of the best listeners I’ve ever met, I love just hanging out with her on the couch watching ‘Nurse Jackie’ and ‘The Golden Girls’ or just taking her for a walk in the park, she pulls all the way there because she’s so excited.
Dogs are great companions, she is not only my companion but she is part of my family and I owe her a lot for helping me overcome my battles with myself. She has helped me find happiness and has helped me figure out where I want my life to go. I’ve always loved animals but I wanted to take the steps in saving the lives of animals and never have had a chance, she has taught me everybody deserves a second chance no matter what.
Showing love to an animal will open up your heart and soul which Lily has done with me. I love her and she’s my baby because basically she’s like my child and I would do anything to protect her, Lilly is a great dog and has made me become a better person.
