About 4 years ago, we had a pedigree Beagle dog that was really adorable. We named him Happy but he wasn’t too happy a dog. The hubs bought him from a pet shop on an impulse because of err, well, maybe because Happy was too cute! Happy was neglected because we simply did not have the time for him. Back then, Alycia was only 2.5 years old and Sherilyn was less than a year old. I was too tied up with 2 young toddlers and never had the time to spend with Happy. The hubs was also very busy with his catering business and seldom had the time to walk Happy or bathed him. I think Happy slipped into a depression and often had bouts of diarrhea attack. The hubs burnt a big hole in his pocket on Happy’s medical expenses as well as Happy’s pet food and supplements. After a few months, we decided that it was best to give Happy away and with a heavy heart, we found someone to adopt Happy.
My girls and I love dogs and one day, when they are a little older and know how to care for a dog, we will get another Beagle or a Golden Retriever. This time, I will ensure that our dog gets unlimited love and attention from us. I will also let the hubs know that he can get pet supplies discounts and online discount coupons on natural pet food so that he does not have to pay through his nose anymore for premium dog food. Till today, I still think about Happy a lot and I wonder if his adoptive owner is taking good care of him. I hope Happy is happy now.
