I haven’t written about my dog yet and after watching “This is us” on NBC, I felt like it was a good time to start.
My dog’s name is Bella. She is a 1 year old pitbull, lab, terrier mix. I adopted her in July of 2016. She’s brought a lot of happiness, excitement and some stress.
But most of all, she’s allowed me to explore my neighborhood more. I’ve lived in New York city for over 7 years now, and I’ve talked to more random people in the past 7 months with my dog, than I have in the previous 7 years.
When I walk her around the city, we see the same dog owners around walking their dogs too. It’s not something that I thought could be achieved in a city so big as Manhattan. When I started walking around, I began to stop and appreciate the little things, stop to just walk and not run in a New York minute.
Life can get very busy in a city so big, but when I break it down to little things, it doesn’t seem so big at all.
