Chloe, now much more appropriately named PIGLET was surrendered by her original owners because of some sort of housing issues. It was love at first sight for Janice, Piglet’s guardian. But it wasn’t a smooth road. Piglet went through a failed adoption before she came to find her perfect FURever home. Janice and Piglet are perfect together and are totally our #adoptiongoals, they live happily together in San Fransisco. You can follow Piglet’s adventures on her instagram @thedogpiglet (especially check out their stories!) Read on for Piglet’s HAPPY TAIL!

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say adopting Piglet changed my life. My friend was fostering her for Zani’s, and when I found out he had a bulldog, I wanted to meet her right away. Who knew meeting a dog would change my life forever?

Another couple actually ended up adopting Piglet immediately after I met her (full story here) and I was devastated when I found out, but a couple of months later, they returned her for food guarding issues and I jumped on the opportunity to adopt Piglet. I spent the first few months terrified I’d ruin Piglet’s life because I’d never had a dog before and had no idea what I was doing, but slowly, Piglet taught me how to be a dogmom and it’s been worth it every step of the way.

Because this dog, this dog is the love of my life and I can’t imagine it any other way.

She’s made me want to learn more, do more, be more. She’s made me a better person and made me live life more. And I’m grateful for that.

I’m also grateful for her happy little face when I walk in the door – there is nothing like being greeted by the happiest face in the world every time you come home. The worst days are made better when I see Piglet’s face.

I love the little jumps Piglet makes to ask me to play with her, I love how patient she is when I’m busy and can’t play with her right away. I love it when she climbs into my lap to rest and how she’ll paw at me to demand my face so that she can lick me to death. And, to be honest, I’ve made so many mistakes with Piglet but she’s always bounced back and shown how resilient she is.

There’s that saying, “We don’t deserve dogs,” and I think it’s so true. Because they are the most loving, forgiving, resilient, live-in-the-moment beings I’ve ever met. Who wouldn’t want to live with happiness every day of their lives?
