I still think maybe adopting a dog while we were still in the early grip of grief was not the wisest decision, but I also think figuring out how to love this dog pushed me to do some work on myself that I wonder if I would have done otherwise. Maybe she's a big part of the reason I feel like I can get on a plane next week, something I thought I would never do again if I could avoid it. I could actually still avoid it but I'm not. That's seems pretty amazing to me.

|Bizarrely, this giant dog has created more space in our home. We spend more time on the floor now than we used to. It's like having an extra room!|
