It just kills me sometimes that I didn't get to know Natty as a puppy. I wonder what she was like? Probably feisty and crazy and sassy like she is now, except on a smaller scale...well, physically smaller, anyway. :) Her puppy 'tude was probably larger than life!
There's so much we don't know about our girl. Where did she come from? Did anyone love her? Did anyone even care when she wandered away (or did they leave her somewhere on her own, to fend for herself?) We find small clues, occasionally, as to what might have come before...but most of our questions will likely never be answered. And that's ok.
Not having Natty as a puppy doesn't make our bond any "less." It just makes it different. I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to watch her blossom and come out of her shell. I wouldn't have it any other way.
What are you thinking about, special girl? Are you remembering your "somewhere out there?" That's ok, as long as you know that your home is here with us, to stay.
