What do you do when you find yourself living alone – for the first time ever at 32? What do you when your father, your best friend, your hero passes away leaving you to fend for yourself in the big world that’s not always pleasant?
You buy a dog? Well, okay technically I was given a dog. A three-year old Golden Cocker Retriever who is the sweetest boy in the world. I am in love already and while I tried hard to ignore his big brown eyes and floppy cocker spaniel ears, I soon felt a calling to take him in. He needed love, affection, care. I need love, affection and well – not care, but compassion; getting an animal is an ideal win-win. His name is Simba and he is my friend.
