BoBo nestles beside me wrapped in his pink blanket,
Australian Shepard/Beagle/ Dachshund, my little rescuer,
having rescued me from the sadness, from the darkness,
he my shadow, my faithful little friend.
Cold black nose, his lips turning upward as if smiling in his sleep.
His chin resting on his big paws,
my perfect friend,
in his silent sleep, his presence comforts me,
nestled next to me.

It has been three years since I adopted BoBo from a pet rescue in my community. He was one of a litter; his mother had been rescued as had his father. Dogs (and cats) can bring such joy to someone’s life. Consider adopting from an animal shelter or a reputable animal rescue if you are considering getting a pet. Pets take a lot of care and attention, but they are such a blessing, as well. BoBo has been a blessing to me.
Merry Christmas and Happy 2020!

I don’t personally have a pet but my parents and brother both have dogs from the shelter. They lead happy little lives now and are as precious as the day is long.
Thank you for reading my post. I have always had a dog. There is a certain comfort to their presence-they love so unconditionally. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.
