(Diddy and Sasha first day home via my blackberry )Diddy was supposed to be my sisters puppy but after about three week of living with her she was faced with the choice of being evicted or giving him up for adoption.Her neighbors began to complain about the barking of the puppy an although pets are allowed in her apartment complex the rules are very strict.After Sasha's passing I didn't want to even see another puppy but my mom didn't want to see him sent to a shelter so we took him in. I was not happy.I thought it was gonna be horrible and I thought I would be reminded of Sasha 24/7. To my surprise it was the total opposite, it was almost like this little creature could sense what I was feeling and set out to fix it . I was set on the idea of him staying away from me. The first day he stayed in my house I fell asleep on the couch watching a movie .I woke up in the middle of the night to find Diddy laying at my feet, not sleeping or playing but just laying. I found this weird because he is usually bouncing off the walls.Before living with us every time my sister would bring him over he would be getting into everything and would never stay still.I dismissed him and got up to go in my room ,he followed . I put him out and and assumed he would go in my parents room and lay down in his bed then I went back to sleep. The next day I woke up, opened my door to go to the bathroom and almost stepped on him because he was laying at my room door . I asked my dad how long he had been at my door and he told me he was there since he got up ( around 6:30am.)This behavior went on for about two more days before I finally bought his doggy bed in my room so he could sleep there.Even after bringing all his things into my room and making him his own space he would only sleep beside my bed on the floor .Gradually I started to warm up to him ,it was hard not to. His sweet gesture of just being there and staying with me warmed my heart .I noticed that the pain surrounding my loss started to lift as we began to bond . Fast forward to now and everything is back to normal, Diddy is his normal playful, silly self and I am feeling great too. He is one of the sweetest ,smartest. goofy,and loving puppy's you will ever meet and despite the circumstances surrounding the way he came to live with us I am happy that he did.
