After my elderly dog passed away years ago, I missed him terribly. I wanted a new companion, but I couldn't envision myself with anyone but him.
I used to imagine that I would wander into the pet store and find him as a puppy among the other pets. Maybe he wouldn't even look the same, but I would recognize the spark in his eyes that would tell me it was him.
Then, landlord be darned, I would take my little puppy home and give him a wonderful life! I would already know what he liked and disliked. I would make sure that we spent as much time playing as he wanted. This time, I would make his life perfect. (Not that he had it bad in the first place, but whenever you lose someone, you always wish you had done more.)
I never did find my little guy again, but many years later, I met the most wonderful pup in Geordie. His personality is completely different. His energy levels are high. His opinions are strong. Sometimes I hate to admit it, but I think Geordie might be even smarter. Imagine if I had gotten my way, I would never have met my new pup. Geordie has changed everything from how many people I know in the neighborhood to my business where I design pet costumes. Sometimes there is joy in unanswered prayers.
