First of all, I want you to know you are a good girl. It’s true that all dogs are essentially good. But you are my dog and I want you to know that I think you in particular are very, very good.
Other words I would use to describe you: sweet, loving, zany, intense, excitable, sincere, kind, full of life, imaginative and stinky.
I do really love you, Willow.
I love how excited you are to wake up every morning and see us, your family. You never take a single day for granted which is a beautiful thing.
I admit, sometimes I get frustrated with you. But ultimately I know that you mean no harm. You love attention (good or bad) and your not ashamed of it. I kind of admire how you are always un-apologetically yourself. Not many people can say the same.
I felt like you didn’t trust us during our early days together. We had to earn your affection the hard way. But I can’t doubt your love now, especially when I hear your paws scratching at my door like Anna in Frozen asking Elsa “Do you want build a snowman?”
You are my sister and I wouldn’t be without you.
So, carry on being yourself. From barking at animals on the TV to getting attacked by cats in the dark, you are the most unique dog I have ever met. Never change, Willow. You are perfect exactly as you are.
