I’m fairly certain that these National ___________ Days were made up by Facebook, but I will take any excuse to post cute pictures of my pup.
In honor of National Puppy Day, I thought back to my little goofball Murphy and how I think my life would be so different were he not in it. He has been such a little love since the day we brought him home…..in a snow storm…in November.
My mom and I drove together to Kentucky to pick up this sweet little bundle of spots. It was the weekend before Thanksgiving, and as we drove through West Virginia, we got a major flat tire.
So flat was said tire that we had to call the state police and a tow truck to assist in getting us somewhere to change it- because I-78 in WV is not where you want to have a flat. It’s an incredibly busy highway.
We arrived safely, new tire and all and picked up the boy. As we drove back, again through West Virginia, there happened to be a freak snow squall. Poor Murphy had just been taken from his mom and littermates and now these cruel strangers were making him pee in the snow. He was only 8 weeks old at the time.
Harrowing journey aside, I’m eternally grateful for the joy he brings me today and every single day. Life, in my opinion, is better with a dog.
