Nine years ago, I received the best birthday gift I could ever ask for. Daphne Lyn, a four legged baby girl with a fur coat, entered my life.
I had just turned 24 and had completed the three most challenging years of my life. I’d been in a traumatic car accident which resulted in me being unable to return to school and graduate with my classmates; lost contact with many of my friends; been through intensive physical, occupational, speech and vision therapy; had my driver’s license revoked due to visual restrictions (I’m legally blind); was dragged through the mud during a stressful court case; and, on top of that my cat, Sterling – a silver long-haired cat I’d had since middle school passed suddenly (in my arms no less!).
I was lost. But, I was also hopeful. It was a new year, a new beginning. The court case had settled and had been favorable. My therapy had been scaled back and was much less intensive. And, my mother (whom I was living with) had agreed to allow me to get a dog.
Lonely, I’d decided I needed a companion and decided to get a pug. I searched the penny savers and bees for available puppies. After reaching out to several breeders, a breeder in Farmersville indicated she had a litter that was born on November 26th (the week Sterling died!) with one female puppy that was unspoken for. The puppy would be available on January 22nd, my birthday! I knew then, this was the one for me!
I was right. The signs had pointed me to this little angel and from the moment my mom and I saw that little face, Daphne stole our hearts.
As she grew, from a playful puppy to a feisty dog, so did our relationship. And, then she did something unexpected. She started talking…. At first I thought it was just me giving her expressive looks a voice, but then I realized that it wasn’t me… but her. She’s a special girl and I don’t know where I would be without her. Happy Adoption Day Daphne!
