Whoa! I thought, this from a woman twice divorced who loves her independence?
She proceeded to describe a Boston Terrier who she met through her friend's rescue efforts. He was about 5 years old and had a rough beginning. You see, he was owned by a family with a little boy who took pleasure in torturing this little dog. He had gouged the dog's eye with a sharp pencil, not once, but two separate occasions. He had one eye removed and the other one was partially blind, before the vet had the dog removed from the home.
Despite his unhappy beginnings, Buddy is a happy boy now who loves to play. He has adapted to his blindness and if you didn't know, would think he had his sight. He goes to the park daily and takes lots of walks. Whenever someone visits him, he will always offer one of his toys to play with him.
I truly believe that when a pet comes into our lives, it is because they have chosen to be with us. You get the pet that you are supposed to have. Sharon and Buddy were surely a match made in heaven.
