We all know how lucky we are to have our pets, but getting ready for St. Patrick’s day reminded me that there is often more than a little luck involved in finding our pets in the first place.
The one that almost got away
If I hadn’t left my job in Washington, DC for one in New York, I never would have been in a position to have a dog at all. Or if I had decided to wait until later in the year (as I originally intended) to get a dog, I would never have found Eko. Thankfully, I had the luck of the Irish with me and picked up the phone on the right day at the right time. The rest is history! Eko is my good luck charm, so it is only fitting that we will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style.
I have a feeling this “lady’s dog” will have no trouble getting smooches
Chicago is known for one of the best St. Patrick’s parades in the country, so I am excited to check it out firsthand this Saturday. Eko is not one to shy away from revelry (he was a big hit at Mardi Gras in New Orleans) but unfortunately there is no good way for him to get downtown since we can’t drive. Don’t worry though, we will check out some local festivities before I go and Eko will no doubt be content to hang out at home with his “pot of gold”.
For Eko, a pot of food glows even brighter than a pot of gold!
Anyone else have a lucky break when it came to finding their pet?
