That’s what he’d said when we first met.
Who knew that one word could be loaded with so much meaning?
I may be reading into things, but I knew… I just knew, that we were destined to be together.
I’d been on the lookout for what seemed like my entire life, but was, in reality, only a few months.
I’d seen him walk into the room and my immediate thought was, wow, he’s super good-looking. I’m not particularly anything special myself, although he assures me I am the cutest thing he’s ever seen, but not for one second did I expect him to talk to me.
I watched him approach, bend down and with that one simple greeting, he touched my heart. He also touched my wet nose as I stuck it through the cage and wagged my tag furiously.
“Hey girl, want to come home with me?” he’d said.
And with those words, I knew I’d found my home.
