Waking up to this little guy begging to be swaddled in my arms makes every day heaps better. You wouldn’t think that getting a dog could make your life transcend, but it really, really does. Im sure there are a lot of people who need Emotional Support Dogs for more substantial reasons than I do, but having this not-so-little guy has picked up my spirits more than I could ever imagined. It’s only been two months since we’ve adopted him from our local shelter and I can’t express how much better I feel emotionally, even physically, now that he’s around.
I could go on forever, but i just wanted to do a little psa… If you have any emotional issues, big or small, rescue a dog. I say rescue because 1) they (more than likely) need to heal emotionally too, and 2) if you are dedicated to making them better, they’ll undoubtedly swear their lives to make you better. Every bad day is not that bad when you have something, that genuinely/innocently loves you, to come home to. And the best part is, they only expects to be loved too.
At my office, we charge $50 for a late cancellation fee or failed appointment. Always. Anyway, heres the fun part. One of my Russian patients calls today saying he couldn’t make his 2 hour appointment today because there was a death in a prison. My first thought was, why does it matter if someone died in a prison? So, I told him that there’d be a $50 late cancellation fee and (i thought) he said “it’s not my fault there was a death in a prison and I have to deal with it. I didn’t know someone would die today!” We argued for a bit and i finally gave up and told him to wait on the line to talk to my office manager. Turns out his name is Father Tadeuz. He is a Catholic PARISHIONER and he consoles families and blesses the body when someone dies… and he actually said “it’s not my fault there was a death and I am a parishioner and have to deal with it!”
One way ticket to hell please!
