365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 7- Quality Time with the Puppy

When I’m at school it’s very hard to find quality time to spend with my puppy Rambo. He isn’t even two yet and I got him after my first dog, Sally, had to be put down at the age of 18. For a few months after we lost Sally, I felt empty. I had always had a dog. My family had adopted Sally from the RSPCA when I was only six years old and so we had grown up together, I barely remembered a life without her.

The months went by and I finally convinced my mum that we should get another dog. I adopted Rambo from the RSPCA in December of 2009 and he has been part of the family ever since. My mum loved him, my dad loves him, he is one of us. Throughout this year, after the loss of my mum, Rambo has become even more important to all of us. At times when we thought we would never smile again, Rambo was there, doing something crazy, making us laugh.

Today Rambo and I went for a walk/run and then he sat on my lap, all afternoon, in the air conditioning. I love Rambo and I am very grateful for all that he has done for my family and I this year.
