I’m starting a series on Pets For Hope. How a pet can bring peace and harmony to a home. Pets are such beautiful souls that can fill a sad and lonely heart with love. So I thought it would be fun to write about my dog Glitzy. Share the joy she has brought to my life and the people Glitzy comes in contact with.
Glitzy is about 6 years old now. Glitzy is half Chijuajua and half Pomeranian a ChiPom. She fit into a coffee mug when we first brought her home. She was very little the runt of the litter, but she was sweet to us when we were choosing her. She also had amazingly beautiful fur and markings.
As she grew, she became very attached to me. It might be because every day when I came home, I would love her and keep her with me all the time. She always slept next to me.
Keep in mind I really did not want a dog, but she totally stole my heart. We became inseparable. All the reasons that I didn’t want a pet went out the window. To much trouble, messy and the list went on.
Each day when I come home she greets me with a joy that only a dog can bring. Nothing but pure love hits the door. She doesn’t come to the door and complain her bones were not plentiful enough, the house was too cold, she simply comes ready for me to pick her up and receive the kisses she loves to give.
She has taught me how to pick up bones when she throws them off the couch or bed. She barks at me to go for walks so she can have a treat. Her new thing is to go out the door turn right back around go to her treat jar and bark. Sneaky little thing.
I am not sure how but instinctively she knows when it’s my day off. She will not let me leave the house without her. Days I go to work she gets back up in my bed and curls up with the covers. She will literally jump off the back of the couch at me if I am walking towards the door. Needless to say, most places I go so can she.
She loves TV!
If you’re living alone, going through a divorce or whatever life circumstance that may have you a bit lonely. I encourage you to go to a local shelter and just see. Play with a few dogs and see what comes of it. Pets quickly become family.
