I turned to pull the covers back over my head and give up for the day. What I always did. That’s when I came face to face with Buddy.
Buddy started jumping all over me, kissing my face, letting me know that it was time to go outside. It was as if he was saying, “It’s no time to be sad, the world is awesome!”
Dogs are amazing creatures! This is what it was like for me with Mosley.
Difference being, I hadn’t been diagnosed yet when I got Mosley. I also didn’t get to my lowest point until a couple years later.
When I was in my deepest, darkest depression, Mosley was the reason I got up every morning when I had no motivation to, he was the reason why I smiled when I didn’t want to, laughed when I didn’t think I could. Most importantly, he kept me alive when I wanted to die.
The day I got Mosley
On a walk during our first week together
Baby Mosley hanging out at my parents’ old house
Back when his head still fit through railings.
This is where he used to hang out while I showered
After running around in the wet grass
There was a baby robin trapped in the window well.
I am forever finding this dog asleep in weird positions.
Mosley and Sadie really like Apples!
