~ love always finds its way home ~
it has taken all of 3 hours for ‘ Buddy ‘ to have acquired a new name of ‘ Sokka ‘ . if you know anything about Avatar the Airbender (the animated series, not the movie), you know who Sokka is. which means you also now have a good idea of Sokka’s ( “Buddy’s” ) personality
the first thing Sokka did upon coming home, was head out into our wild woods for a long walk. we scouted deer, fox, bird, dog, and mystery animal tracks. Sokka left his sniffer tracks in the snow. ( a trail where he dragged his nose through snow sniffing out smells only known to him ). we pranced along together as a pack as the sun warmed our faces and the giddyness of new love filled our hearts!
it wasn’t long that visions of hooking Sokka up to a sled and skis were excitedly discussed. i began to think of saddlebag dog pack designs i could make for backcountry hiking and camping. and of course, it was a unanimous YES that Sokka would join us on our midnight full moon magic wild wolf run through the woods this evening!
one thing is for certain, one quickly discovers how a little bit of compassion and understanding, coupled with some patience and the belief in second chances can turn anyone’s life around.
…and how when the time is right, the loss of an old friend, also makes room for a new friend.
