You may ask what this picture has to do with dogs or pets. The baby in the picture is me. My parents were married for 7 years and did not end up getting pregnant, so they adopted my non biological sister first and a year and a half later me. I came home to them on Labor Day in 1967. So almost a full 54 years ago. Four years later my mother had a biological daughter, and the two years after that they had another daughter so two adopted daughters and two biological daughters. Why you may ask am I sharing this???? Well because just like any pet you have, I was adopted. Even dogs we purchase from breeders are "adopted". They are not biologically ours but we build a loving relationship with them. I want to use my blog to share the emotional connections I am making with your pets. I connect with them on a level I never dreamed of. Stay tuned as I add to this blog and share the heartfelt stories of pet sitting and how it is fixing my heart.
