My Knight In Furry Armour

Monday, 10 June 2013

The day I met my future husband, I also met the second love of my life - his beautiful 10 year old Staffy, Oggy.  That day I was lucky enough to meet, not only my Prince Charming - but my little "Knight In Furry Armour" as well!

I've always been an animal lover, so it was easy for me to fall in love with Oggy instantly.  But now having had him in my life for more than 2 years, I realize what a special and unique dog he really is.

The past year for me has been tough - recovering from a nervous breakdown and various other health issues.  There was a time not so long ago, that I was suicidal and I was spending my days planning out how I would end it all.  Oggy was the one who sat by me as I cried uncontrollably and suffered severe anxiety attacks (with the exception of my fiancĂ©e of course).  This dog did not leave my side on the days I was at my worst - wherever I went, he was next to me and I truly believe he could sense how much pain I was in.  He wasn't going to let me hurt myself and I'll always be grateful to him for that.

On days that are hard, Oggy sits next to me and licks the tears off my face - I've never experienced anything sweeter in my life!

This special little boy is such a big part of our lives.  Sometimes I find myself getting emotional, just at the thought that one day he will leave us.  I just know that day will be one of the saddest of my life.

But until then, we are enjoying every minute we have with our little furry angel.  I don't think it's possible for another dog to be loved (and spoilt) as much as this one!  The loyalty and love he has shown us, is the absolute least we can try to give back to him.

I'm one lucky girl to have met the two loves of my life on the same day!  For that I'll always be grateful.
