|Conker's last paragraph really summed it up. Whenever I go anywhere, even out to lunch, my first thought is, "Can I take Onyx?" Longest we've been apart was a couple months ago when I flew up to WA just for only a couple days, so I didn't feel it was worth putting him through being in the plane's cargo. I missed him so much it was ridiculous. Called home all the time to make sure he was ok.
Fortunately he's with me now as we're driving up to WA to stay for a few weeks. I can tell my relatives think I'm a bit nuts because I insist on bringing him everywhere (he came with to my cousin's graduation today and sat with me), but I miss him anytime I can't bring him with me. And of course I find ways to bring Onyx, or dogs in general, into just about every conversation. I have to bite my tongue sometimes because I don't want to annoy people.
My parents always joke that stuff comes in the mail every other day for Onyx because I'm always finding something new I want to buy him. Where most girls buy new clothes/shoes, I buy new dog accessories/toys/treats/food/ect. I just enjoy buying stuff for him so much more than for myself. And they're always impressed how much time/money I put into his diet but it's like a hobby, I enjoy it.
And like Lucille said, I'm in way better shape and get out a lot more because of Onyx. If it were up to me, I'd sit around all day and be lazy. But seeing how much Onyx enjoys exercise and going new places makes me enjoy it too.
He's the first dog I've really felt bonded with. He can be a real butt at times (teenager that he is) but even when his rebellious side comes out, he's still so amazing. I can't wait to see what kind of adult he'll mature into!
