Do We Pick Our Dogs? or Do They Pick Us?

While on vacation last week, I got caught up on some reading.
I read Yorkie Doodle Dandy: Or, the Other Woman Was a Real Dog
It's a true story of a famous Yorkie during World War II.
In the book, this soldier, Bill Wynne, "finds and saves" a helpless
Yorkie. But by the end of the book, he comes to the conclusion that in fact,
the dog came into his life for a purpose and was meant to change
his life. I have always believed, people come into our lives
I am sure the same is true
for dogs. We do not pick them, they pick us. Or at least, they make us pick them.
There is a reason, we end up with the pets, we end up with!

When a friend of ours decided to give us a Yorkie for Christmas,

we selected "the perfect" Yorkie and fell in love on the Internet!

Just days before the delivery, we were informed he could not be shipped. He was too small and not eating enough. We were heartbroken. But within a couple hours, another Yorkie showed up online and we fell in love with her. Seems her buyer had backed out of the deal, so she

was now available and we grabbed her up. And what a precious pup she turned out to be!

She brings so much joy to our lives! And I am sure, she was THE ONE meant for us.

If you have a chance, stop by the YORKIE DOODLE DANDY site.
And if you love dogs and Yorkies, you will enjoy his book!
