Growing up I had never really understood how people could have such a strong connection with their pets, this was the case until I had met Luna.
Although Luna is not my dog but my step mums (Birdy). Birdy had wanted a dog for so long and would always talk about Luna before even having her, and to me this was crazy! But now Luna is such a big part of my life, always at family events, when I go over to fix my motorbike, going to get groceries and even attends my soccer games with my parents!
Having spent so much time with Luna, she has shown how much empathy, affection and pure joy she brings to my family, especially Birdy. My respect for animals has grown ten fold and I have Luna to thank for that.
Luna has a special place in my life, we respect each other, even though she still tries to playfully push my personal space bubble. <3
