This week Thankful Tuesday is about my Welsh Corgi Cardigan Oracle. She has been by my side for about 5 years time now and I am so grateful for all the things she has helped me with.
She’s largely one of the reasons I’ve been able to fight my mental health problems. When I got her I needed to start going out with her. A puppy needs to go out a lot if you don’t want pee and poop in the house. And when I was out with her I didn’t have time to be worried about being outside alone. I had my puppy and she needed my attention.
And before we got her, my husband (then boyfriend) had a demand that I should have my drivers license before we got a dog so I could drive to her to the vet in case of an emergency. So I got my drivers license about a month before we got her.
When Oracle got older I started teaching her what I needed her to do if I got a panic attack and she was a quick learner. She is wonderful and I love her.
She always makes me laugh. It can be from how she sleeps, or how she plays. She loves lying close to me on the sofa. And every time it snows she plays in the snow like a puppy. She has a joy of life that is contagious.
I am so thankful to have her in my life.
Right now she is sleeping next to me and it feels safe to have her with me.
