Today is National Seagull Day. The day Mom remembers her first love, her companion through many years, her die hard road trip buddy, her snuggle bug, her best friend that passed 2 years ago. Mom found her for free on Craigslist and thought she should go get her before someone with bad intentions did. It was love at first sight. Seagull ran right out of the lady’s door and jumped in the seat of Mom’s Geo Metro like “let’s do this thing”. Then Mom found out what owning her own dog was like AND what it was like to have have to defend her dog’s breed to complete strangers on the sidewalk, to have to explain why she would adopt a “dangerous” dog on social media. But Mom was happy to show any doubting soul who Seagull really was... and when they saw, they understood. Pitbull is a word, the dog is an entirely different story. Heart of gold. Queen of snuggle. Gentle and tender. Smart, loyal and goofy as hell.
You will always be missed in our house. You started a legacy. Nothing will ever take the heart space with your name on it, but you made Mom’s heart big enough to stand up for a cause and to love a Pony. That’s what life changing love does... it makes the heart grow big enough for more and more love. #tbt #seagulldog
