i remeber almost a year ago, when i first got my dog zorro, he was such a tiny itty bitty thing that he made my other dog frisco look like a friggin great dane.
so since he was mine and i got him so young, he was pretty much my baby and almost treated as such.
you know how puppies like to take a lot of naps? when zorro first started sleeping on my bed with me, i used to put my hand over his little chest and just marvel at such a strong heart beat that he had. it still blows my mind whenever i remember it. like how can something so tiny feel like he had a heart of a lion? [[but then again, we are talking about dogs here ;) ]]
sometimes i wonder if this is how mothers and fathers feel when they first feel/hear their baby’s heartbeat. [[ok so i might sound like a dog lady but whatevs]] i wouldn’t really know cuz 1)i don’t have a kid 2)i’ve never really listened/felt any of my little neice’s/nephew’s heartbeats when they were babies. :/ but i digress…
anyways,zorro’s a lot bigger now and pretty much resembles a tiny giraffe or mini great dane [[acts like one too]] but whenever he does snuggle up to me during one of his naps i still feel for his tiny little heart. :]
