Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Hello. If you’ve made it here then I can only assume you have a soft spot in your heart for dogs. And if you’re anything like me, then your spot is more the size of a gaping hole and for all animals, both small and large.
I suppose I should start with a few details that involve myself…
I’m currently twenty-three, living at home, working but still searching for my dream job, and most importantly enjoying adventures and cuddles with Koda.
And now for the more important part…
Koda is a mix between a Pomeranian and a Shihtzu, also known as a Pom-Tzu or a Shiranian, whichever you think is cooler. He turned three in November and has only just grown out of his puppy-like ways. Well, most of them anyway. He still enjoys chasing motorbikes and hasn’t yet grasped onto the concept of rabbits not being dogs.
For the past three years, many of my family who have never been ‘animal people’, have loved and cared for Koda in a way I never thought imaginable. And in return, Koda has become an irreplaceable part of all of our lives. He has helped us to grow as not only a family, but individually.
There have been moments where life has been fragile for many of us and each time it seems Koda is the glue that keeps us from breaking.
Whoever said dogs may not be there for our whole lives but they make our lives whole, could not have been more accurate.
