Whenever there is a full moon or a meteor show or even a starry night, ma and I are outside enjoying it together. She always tells me she loves me from the moon and beyond.
Last night while we waited for the eclipse to complete, we even seen some shooting stars. Ma told me to make a wish but I didn't know what to wish for considering my wishes came true years ago.
When I was a puppy, I wished that I would find the right home. You know, a forever loving home... My wish came true. One day I was watching that box you call a tv and seen a dog that had a job. I wished that I had a job...my wish came true. A couple years ago I wished I had a kitty to take care of...my wish came true.
The thing about wishes is that you have to really think about what you are wishing for. When you wish for something you can't just sit around and wait for it to happen. You have to work for it. All the things I wished for I had to work hard for. I had to prove that I was able to continue to keep what I wished for. The wish fairy just helps you along the way to get what you want.
I wished for a forever home...I had to work hard to show I deserved that home and could abide by the rules of the house. It took me 3 tries but I finally found what I needed.
I wished I could have a job...I had to work hard to learn what I was being trained for. A service dog goes through rigorous training. Its just not behaving in public. We have jobs whether its medical alert- to let our handler know something is about to happen, mobility dogs-to help the handler walk, get up or down out of chairs, walk up or down stairs etc. Guide dogs-helping blind handlers walk through crowds or even just from point A to point B. Dogs who pull wheelchairs, pick up items, help pay for purchases or pushing buttons to open doors or go up a elevator. Service dogs have jobs that they have been trained to do.
I wished for a kitty- I had to work to show I was responsible enough to have a kitty. I had to prove to the pawents, I wanted a kitty. I watched kitty shows on tv and talked to those kitties, I was a spokesdog for a no kill shelter and proved I wouldn't hurt or chase any of those kitties and when a kitty FINALLY showed up at our house, I had to prove I could help take care of it and be nice to it. Molly Mew was a kitty that had to be rescued from under the hood of a car and I had to convince the pawents to keep her.
All my big wishes have came true so I didn't know what to wish for. The clouds were slowly moving back in and there were times that we couldn't see the moon at all. I wished that it would clear up so that we could see more of the eclipse and then it happened.....
There it was! barely any clouds and the moon in the sky just staring at us. Ma kept saying "YES! THERE IT IS!" She was happy to get the photos of the moon. It won't do this again for another 18 years and I know I won't be here to see it again but hopefully she will. When she sees it again, she will think of me. She will remember the times that we have shared together staring at the moon and the stars together. So I guess you could say, my wish came true again. I wished for memories and that is what I got.
Thank you clouds for parting long enough for ma and I to share time together watching it happen. The wish fairy gave me my wish once again.....
Apparently, the camera fairies have a sense of humor because ma also got a photo that looked like 2 moons in the sky. I guess you can say, we were "mooned".
Did you see the eclipse??
Did you make a wish??
