Today – August 26th – is National Dog Day!
I would like to use the opportunity to dedicate a quick post to my dogs, and to all dogs out there, who have in some way supported the lives of their owners – especially those suffering with mental illness like myself.
At the moment at my Dad’s house we have a dog aged (almost) 5 and a puppy aged 8 months (who prefer to remain anonymous!). The 5-year old, M, and I have a special relationship and I love him with all my heart. I always joke to people that he is the “canine version” of myself – we are similarly sensitive, submissive, and needy, and in need of a lot of attention and affection – and really, it is the truth! I love him like he is my baby, and everybody in my life knows it too.
