HOW DID YOUR RESCUE DOG RESCUE YOU?
Aside from all the known benefits of having a dog, Lou is so much more. I swear he’s part human and he has a way of making me laugh even at my lowest points. But his joy extends out beyond just me. My friends and family are often more excited to see Lou than me.
Adults, kids and even too-cool-for-school teenagers – everyone has the same reaction when he comes bounding in the room bouncing, white hair and pink tongue – “LLOOOUUUU!!!”
He’s a goofball who is often has a case of the zoomies! Run, run, run with his butt tucked up under him. Then he will launch himself sideways at your legs. It’s the funniest thing. He makes himself at home on any lap as long as there are endless belly rubs.
I don’t know Lou’s past, but I suspect it wasn’t easy on him. Though whatever he experienced, he was still smiling when I first saw him, and he’s always smiling now. He’s a reminder to me no matter what happened or what you’re afraid of, there’s so much to be happy about and so much fun to be had. I’m so fortunate Lou waited for me at the rescue and I listened to my heart. We were both given the gift of unrelenting love and endless smiles.
