I TRIED ALL THE USUAL “SOULMATE” SEARCH RITUALS AND ENGINES.
Rollerblading around Central Park half naked…
Being a bar fly in every new hotspot and having affairs with a waiter or three in every restaurant I worked in…
On a plethora of online dating sites…
Which lead me to realize years later, HE was not inside my computer, on a dance floor or sitting on a barstool!
HE turned out to be a 6 pound maltipoo puppy I found on Craigslist (where I was cruising the personal ads I will be honest).
His picture and bio caught my instant attention. House broken, non-shedding and very affectionate. What more could I ask for?
On the drive to Santa Clarita to meet him, I was nervous. It truly was like a first date. What if he didn’t like me? What if he smelt funny or had a runny eye or bum?
Luckily for the both of us, it was love at first sight. He was sitting in his pen waiting patiently for me. I scooped him up and drove home with the love of my life in my lap. He was a little car sick, which caused him to vomit all in my car, but it didn’t bother me at all. I’ve had men vomit in my car before and basically pushed them out onto the road…but not this one!
5 years later I am in the best place I have ever been in my life. Thanks to Humphrey B Bear and his 17.4 pounds of unconditional love, support, company and shared life experiences. Through Humphrey I have met some amazing people and he is my co-pilot in life. He spoons me at night, he eats whatever I feed him, he pees and poops outside and most importantly, he loves me whether I am 20 pounds overweight or covered in zits. Plus he doesn’t talk back or question me…ever!
