I have sneezed at exactly 1:31am for the last four days. What does this mean? What is the universe trying to tell me?
I am planning a move to Knoxville, TN for an internship, but I am having a very difficult time finding apartments that allow dogs. See, I have had my dog since the say she was born. Since that day we have developed a wonderful symbiotic relationship with each other. I love her more than I care for most people. She is my kin.
Today, my mom was petting my dog and made the suggestion that I would have an easier time finding a place if I left my dog with her for the duration of my lease. I gave her a resolute “no” in response, but ever since she made the suggestion my dog has completely avoided me. If I walked into a room, she would leave. If I tried to call her, she’d run the other way.
She understood what my mom said! She knew that I planned on leaving her!
Just now I sat on the floor and bribed her to me with a milk bone. She walked over tentatively and plopped down in front of me and made the saddest little whine I have ever heard, while putting her head against my chest. She was crying.
I proceeded to tell her that I would never leave her; that it was me with her, forever. Upon saying that to her, she instantly perked up. She picked her head up, yelped a few times in celebration and went over to her toy basket and brought me her favorite toy as a thank you.
She is my kin.
