Frodo came into my life
when I needed him the most . I had just had a hysterectomy , due to cancer , and
I didn't know which way to go . I was so young at that time .
Frodo was my dream dog . I will always remember the day I met him - it was a
magical day . It was my Birthday and it was a hot & humid day . The high for the day was
105 in the shade . When I first saw Frodo and his siblings they were at play - seemingly unaffected
by the oppressive heat . They were obviously healthy and happy . As I pulled into the yard of the
breeder one puppy captured my eye - I couldn't take my eyes off of the little guy . I was interested in
getting a male and the pup that captured my heart turned out to be a male . What luck! There was
something special about him and I can't find the right words to explain it . I know that I sound a little silly but, he seemed to be glowing! It was as if we knew each
other and had been waiting for this moment . When we actually met it was as if he was saying; " Well
it's about time you got here! Let's go home!" I was a little worried about the drive home since I
was alone and therefore the only one to take care of Frodo plus drive . Well - I needn't have
worried! He was so relaxed and well behaved there wasn't any problem . All the way home he
laid with his head on my lap and just looked up at me with a puppy smile on his face . I talked
to him and told him the name I wanted to name him . By the time we got home - about 20
minutes - he had already learned his name . He was so intelligent it was almost frightening .
He never failed to amaze me . He was basically house broke within 3 days . All you had to
do to teach him anything was just to show him what you wanted once and he had it . It was
a little difficult to teach him to come because he never left my side . He was my soul mate - my
best friend . My life has never been the same since he's been gone . When he left me, due to
cancer, I had just been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and my Siamese, Toma, had just
lost his life because of renal failure . Within 3 weeks my whole world was just gone .
I've never been the same . I had and do have furry friends . I'm not sure if the pain
a person lives with after they are gone is worth it or not . All I do know is that I need
their little furry faces in my life . If they weren't in my world I couldn't go on . The world
would be a cold and lonely place without them .
