Why I Love My Dog, Bea
Why I Love My Dog, Bea
I’ve said it many times before: there’s no such thing as a bad dog.
There are so many reasons why I love my dog, Bea.
I love my dog because despite the stigma attached to the Rottweiler breed, Bea proves time and time again just how wonderful she is. She uses her doggy charm to wiggle her way into people’s hearts. Everything from her soft, wet nose down to her wiggling, nub of a tail, she radiates pure love and joy to anyone she meets (even the nay-sayers!).
I love my dog because she is a goofball. She will roll onto her back for belly rubs and squirm around as if she was still a puppy, excitedly grunting and snorting until she gets attention. She makes a goofy face and smiles when she looks up at me. It’s easy to see that she is a happy girl.
I love my dog because she is blissfully unaware of how big she really is. She is a cuddle-bug, through and through. If I could pet her all day I would, and it still wouldn’t be enough!
I love my dog because she only barks when she is happy to see me. Furthermore, it sounds more like a mellow “wooo, wooo, wooo!” She sounds adorable!
I love my dog because she stands nicely for her bath time, even though she doesn’t like the water at all.
I love my dog because she gets a wild look in her eye at the sight of a spoonful of peanut butter!
I love my dog because no matter how many dog breeds and temperaments I have trained and worked with in the past, I find myself frequently learning new things from her.
I love my dog because she doesn’t ask for much. We don’t have a lot of money or live in a luxurious house. We don’t have the fanciest bed for her, or a plethora of toys. Despite this, she enjoys the life that she has and she lets me know it every day.
I love my dog because she is always by my side. I don’t always spend as much time as I would like to with her. She is the most loyal companion I could ever ask for.
I love my dog because even in her old age there is hope and love in her eyes. I know that she will always love me and she knows that I will always love her.
A Final Word
I wrote this hub after hearing nasty things other people had to say about the Rottweiler breed. Whether their comments are out of pure ignorance or simply from a bad experience, all I can say is that I feel sorry for them to have not met such a wonderful dog like Bea. I had the opportunity to sit down and reflect on the many years I have had with my dog.
My animals are my best friends and they have shown me unconditional love and affection. Bea wasn't as friendly as she used to be. She was a rescue from an abusive home where she was bred for puppies and then disposed of. She had a fear of men among other things. With some time, training, and a little bit of effort, I built a strong bond with her and have never had a dog as loyal as she is.
I rescued my dog, and she rescued me. Because of Bea, I have felt love and joy. I learned to trust. I learned to understand the value of a true friendship and loyalty.
Bea's age is starting to catch up with her and I sometimes wonder how much longer she has on this earth. I know I'll be sad when that day comes, but I also know that I treasured every moment with her. She will always have a special place in my heart.
Be kind to your pets, and treasure every moment.
