The First Time We Met!

Good morning beautiful humans,  happy Friday! Thank for spending part of your morning with me or evening, depending on where you live in this great big world. Welcome to Life with Lane; my life through words, pictures, and food!

Life with Lane: “First time we met!”

Well the old man is 14 now and I’ve had him since he was 3 months old. It made me think about the 1st time we met. It was a day in October; I don’t remember what day though. I was with my ex-husband.  We were actually supposed to be looking at rental houses to move into. Our lease on our apartment was expiring and we decided to take that Saturday to go look at rental properties. However when we came back to our apartment I had onyx.

After we looked at a few properties we drove by a place called Just Puppies . I looked at my ex husband and I said can we go to the puppy store? He said we can go but we’re just looking. So, we walk into the puppy store and there’s all these little play pins with puppies in them. I look around and I walk over to the little play pin and Onyx was in it. He was absolutely adorable.  I crotch down and he walks over to me and he licked my nose. I picked him up and I never put him down. He’s been my dog since that day. It was literally love at 1st sight.

I was only 24 years old

When we brought him home I couldn’t put him down. He was just so tiny and adorable; I just thought he was the best thing ever. Later that night he had to go to the bathroom and he walked over to the door and he scratched it. I thought to myself you just came from the puppy store, you’ve never been to anyone’s home, how do you know to scratch the door to let me know that you have to go outside? It was like he was heaven sent. Anytime that he was ever in his crate; he never once used the bathroom. He never used the bathroom in the apartment.

When I say he’s the best money I’ve ever spent; believe me! He’s the gift that keeps on giving. He knows all of my moods. He always makes me feel better. When life hasn’t been kind to me, when relationships have failed, jobs suck, friends left me behind, he’s always there! God knew exactly what he was doing when he created Man’s best friend!

  1. What a beautiful memory. We’ve been pet free for over 4 years now, having had cats our whole marriage – at one time we had FOUR! When our last cat Pippie died, the loss was so painful. We are talking about getting a dog at the end of the year, but lets see how reality plays out! Have a wonderful day 🙂
