It will soon be a year since my life has changed dramatically. From the poor conditions of the puppy mill, I got to my humans. Most people who find out about my destiny feel sorry for me. Unnecessarily. I think I was very lucky in life.
I was given the opportunity to experience firsthand that something positive can be found even in the bad. Even in the puppy mill, I had moments when I was happy. For example, when I got food, or when I find friends in a pack. I didn’t wait with my happiness to get away. I could still wait for that.
I appreciate that I knew both bad and good. I can see the differences now. I appreciate what I have. Not like some spoiled dogs who have everything conceivable and still not enough for their happiness.
People have it differently. They often look for happiness where they cannot find it. And it is located right next to them. But they don’t see him. They are still waiting for something to happen that will be the reason for the real happiness. Until they finish school. Until they find a good job. Until they make enough money. Until they buy house. Until they are famous. Until … And finaly they die without being happy.
And so, my nice people, I advise to you: be like us dogs, live with what is and be happy with it! Remember that feeling happy is just a matter of our choice. After all, like all feelings. We must not give anyone and anything external the power to control our feelings.
