Meant To Be

The day we brought Otis home will forever hold a happy place in my mind. My eyes welled up with tears as he greeted us on his “gotcha” day and I knew that he was meant to be part of our family. We had a five-hour drive back home and he was wrapped up in his blankie in my arms nearly the whole time, just like a baby. My baby, sweet Otis."

Life before Otis 
"About a decade ago, I started suffering from chronic pain and illness caused by chronic migraines. My childhood pet, Louie, helped me get through some of the toughest days. It may sound silly to some, but we formed a bond that just simply couldn’t be put into words. He knew when I needed him the most and he was right there beside me.

Since his passing, there has been a void in my heart and I think Otis was brought into my life to fill that void.

For the first time in years my first thought upon waking is no longer ‘ughh..I feel terrible’, but ‘I wonder if Otis is up!’ I think this is just the start of the wonderful things to come for the both of us. I couldn’t be more excited to be his puppy mama! 💗"
