Do you ever want to stop time, right here and right now? I feel that especially acutely when I've formed a strong bond with a dog. I've learned from past experience that their time on this earth is fleeting, as many of you have learned too.
Although she's not the dog who I expected to arrive in my life back in 2012, she has been a dog who has forced me to grow in unexpected ways. I've learned empathy for those with deep-seated anxiety and fear, for that is what hinders Shyla. I've also learned to play like a child with her because that is one thing that brings out the joy deep within her.
