Moving on in More than One Way

Time is my healer. Along with crying and silence. I cannot function without either of these. So I must move on.

I am going to start with writing first. Its going to be awhile before I meet someone again I know. Patience.

Moving on. Quite literally I am moving on with my life and puutting this behind me. I WILL not let it rob me of my happiness and the one precious thing I have that was given to me so long ago. The right to live.

I am also moving from my residence to another place in a better part of town about 10 miles away. Just a better community so have been busy packing and organizing. The cleaning part is coming this week and then the final move on Friday. It has given me something to look forward too.

I also want a dog. Its been a long time since I had a dog. Over 10 years now and I need the companionship. Just to talk to someone who can listen and not say anything back to me with words, but with only actions.

Don't be offended men, but sometimes, I long or that in a relationship. Just let me talk, just listen and you dont need to say anything back. Hold me and make me feel safe. I think all women want that.

I heard the other day that a woman's daily vocabulary is about 7,000 words and a man's is only 2,000. Quite a difference and by the time he gets home he has spent most of those words on his coworkers.

So I am packing. Here is a picture of what my new place will look like.

I am thinking about a small dog. Not a cutsey kinds woman so little lap dogs are out of the question.

Anyone have any ideas on a good small dog?

I even like "mutts" LOL!

I'm so happy to see you back and hear you're healing...you are stronger than you think, as strong as you need to be.

A dog is a great idea. I've just gotten an Australian Cattle dog and she is wonderful. 35 pounds and she acts as if we're attached with velcro. She even puts her head on my chest in bed at night so if you want a constant companion...there's one idea.

And I consider myself a bit of a mutt...woof!

So glad your back ... ALA .. Hope you can put your unpleasant experience in the past, and move on. I believe we each has to "feel" the dog were going to live with ...the choice of a dog is sorta like a man, ..... the choice isn't always right, but It's your choice.
I happen to love Schnauzers ..Giant, Standard & Mini ..... And have had one around me for most of my life ... I would recommend a standard, Mini are to yippee, and Giants (my favorite) are big dogs .. All are fiercely loyal to the a individual or family, and standoffish to others

Nice to know you are putting it all behind you time does heal all.
take your time be selective and be very careful.
as for the dog I have always had a dog my whole life I am partial to big dogs right now I have 2 a boxer (which I think she has been the smartest dog i have ever owned) and a dalmation lab mix (he is 6years old and acts like a year old puppy) both are good dogs the female is 11 years old. the next dog i want is an old floppy eared blood hound.
anyway my mom had a lopsu not sure how it is spelled but thats they way is sounds it was a good dog small and very lovable.

try a Beagle, they can be quite protective and people usually underestimate them because of thier size, plus you'll never sleep through his barking if he needs to alert you of something.

Hi, I currently have a jack russell. Great personnality. He weighs about 18 pounds and doesn't want attention he demands attention. Loves to cuddle up next to me in bed, the couch or wherever. Also have a female german shepard. Very affectionate. Must have been abused in the past because she rolls over in a submissive pose when you go to pet her. Gradually getting over it.
