My parents planned a trip to Ireland with friends and asked me if I could take some time off work to look after Ralph, our beloved Golden Doodle.
Of course I didn’t hesitate for one second and said yes!
The chance to have one-on-one time with my gorgeous boy, to enjoy lovely walks, playing and of course, lots of cuddles was too good of an opportunity to miss.
Ralph is 10 years old on Friday, the time has flown by.
Yes pets are a big responsibility and can dominate a lot of your time ( and be expensive!) but you are rewarded with unconditional love and loyalty.
They can lift your mood when feeling low, make you go outside and do some walking (even in the rain!), ease loneliness and stress.
Apparently dogs live in the moment. Perhaps we should take a leap out of their book and learn to live in the present moment and fully appreciate life!
I certainly enjoyed every second I spent with Ralph!
Love, Georgia x
