Final Draft

I never thought I would adopt any animal. I grew up wanting a certain type of breed, something like a Husky or a Samoyed. Just a big, family friendly dog. Even though adopting is cheaper and of course gives animals who had a hard life give a chance of a loving family, I still chose the idea of buying from a breeder. That changed last year, when I found Dubu.

I went to the annual pet fair that was hosted last year in Pleasanton. I went with my girlfriend, Hanna, because she really wanted to adopt a dog. After searching for almost 4-5 hours in the total of 2 days, I lost all hope, but then my girlfriend found a puppy that was playing with other people. It was love at first sight. We got luck and adopted the puppy, who we named Dubu, which is Korean for Tofu. Don’t question the name, because Hanna picked the name and one never questions their lady!

This was my first real pet that I took care of, especially with Hanna. when adopting Dubu, we found out that Dubu’s life wasn’t all that easy. When Dubu’s mother was pregnant, she was found in the alleyways and an empty, old house, dirty and hungry. Luckily, the organization we adopted Dubu from saved her and she was able to give birth to healthy pups. Dubu was living from one foster home to another. This made Dubu anxious with random strangers because she kept getting passed on from one house to the next. The first couple nights, we had to warm up to her, but thankfully she was able to get comfortable with ease.

Taking care of Dubu really helped open my eyes on how I view things in life. Despite how much we spoil her, Dubu is always very caring and gives us the same amount of love, if not more. I feel that I can learn many things from Dubu, like how I learned from Jesus. From Dubu, I learned that I can always be happy no matter what hardships I face and that there is always a positive side to everything. Love really conquers all. This little fur baby, was full of energy and brought everyone love and joy wherever she went, despite her judgments. There is not a single person who did not smile when meeting her. Whenever Hanna or I cry because we watch a sad movie at home, Dubu always comes to us to make sure we are not crying. She does not like it when we cry and gives us kisses. She keeps me warm whenever I am cold and is always gives me unconditional love, no matter how tired or whatnot she is. Despite what mood Hanna and I are in, Dubu is always by our side.

With Dubu, I learned how to be more responsible because I am literally taking care of a life! I always have to remember her appointments – for both doctor and hair appointments – and make sure she eats the right kind of food so she doesn’t get sick. We buy her lots of toys and spoil her rotten, but she gives us love in return. Despite how much we spoil her, Dubu is always very caring and gives us the same amount of love, if not more.

With Dubu, I learned how to be more responsible because I am literally taking care of another life! I always have to remember her appointments – for both doctor and hair appointments – and make sure she eats the right kind of food so she doesn’t get sick. I joke around how Hanna tends to give Dubu better food than she gives us! We buy her lots of toys and spoil her rotten, but she gives us love in return. Despite how much we spoil her, Dubu is always very caring and gives us the same amount of love, if not more.

Taking care of Dubu really helped open my eyes on how I view things in life. This little fur baby, despite having to one house to the other and being taken away by her mom while she was young, was full of energy and brought everyone love and joy wherever she went. There is not a single person who did not smile when meeting her. Whenever Hanna or I cry because we watch a sad movie at home, Dubu always comes to us to make sure we are not crying.

I went to the annual pet fair that was hosted last year in Dublin/Pleasanton. I went with my girlfriend, Hanna, because she really wanted to adopt a dog. We were living together at the time. It was a three-day event, but we were only able to go the last two days. The first time we went, we went a bit later near the end because of work. I wanted a puppy, but Hanna just wanted any cute and friendly dog. There was not a dog that I had a connection with. The second day, before 2 hours the event was over, we visited one more time. I lost all hope and then my girlfriend found a puppy that was playing with other people. We both instantly fell in love with the little furry baby. Eventually, we got the puppy, who we named Dubu which is Korean. Hanna picked the name, just because her fur is white.
