Huge Saint Bernard dog being needy
I have an American Bulldog mutt who is pushing 100 lbs and is the exact same way…thinks he’s a lapdog.
Conversely, I also have a 11 lb malti-poo who thinks he’s a rabid Irish Wolfhound, and a beagle who doesn’t recognize that he’s a dog but thinks he’s a teenage Sherlock Holmes…announces everything happening outside the house and talks back when I address him by name.
Dogs are weird.
Reject the notion that you are supposed to be at a certain place by now.
Don’t measure yourself to some colloquial set of social constructions.
I have never used the fact that I’ve been hurt in the past as a reason to hurt other people or a justification for treating other people badly
It’s either I have the strength and energy to be a positive force in other people’s lives
Or I stay my distance until I can get to that point
"When life descends into the pit
I must become my own candle
willingly burning myself
to light up the darkness around me."
