Blogging Friends.... If you have not already figured this out, I am a shameless advocate of mixed breed canines and mutt adoption on my Blog!! I'm unapologetic, really!! Why? Because I share my existence with a certain Beautifully Unique "Mystery Dog", named Rose!! And I love and celebrate her every second of the day!! Plus, based upon personal observation, seemingly nobody owns mongrels!! But that is just what I have seen.... So, twice monthly, I will be expressing my feelings regarding anything mixed breed!! But do not desert me, dear Friends, because of this one Blog post. Please. There will be plenty of stories to come!!
A reputation. Everybody has one. Some are self-created. Such as the way that Taylor Swift will, sans any doubts, write this popular song about an ex-boyfriend who broke her heart. Others, are resulted, unintentionally, from life's happenings. They're accidental, and seldom wanted. Either way, everyone possesses a reputation. Or more than one. Some are negative. Others positive. Some are wedged in between. Mine? In the privacy of our home, I have many. Which only close loved ones know about!! In Blogville? It is this colossal passion--which touches my deepest emotions--toward mutts!! Plus an unexpected appreciation for "Mystery Dogs"!! An unexpected appreciation. Which, started nearly two years ago, after I adopted Rose!! Had I foretold the future, I'd never have predicted that some "Mystery Dog" would wrap herself so tightly around my heart!! Some "Mystery Dog" named Rose!! I wanted to know the "breed" of every mutt that we rescue. Adopting Rose changed this perspective. Drastically. Now, I would own a "Mystery Dog" mutt again. And again. And again. And again. And again. With genuine pleasure!! Why am I so vehement toward mutts? Because. They are one-of-a-kind!! Completely irreplaceable in every way imaginable!! Mutts are Beautifully Unique, which is a phrase that I dreamt up!! On my own. What, exactly does that mean: "Beautifully Unique"? For me personally? Beautifully Unique is a phrase which has immense significance to me!! Immense significance. Because Rose is Beautifully Unique in every way, shape and form!! Never truly having her "breed" determined defines Rose. She is a Beagle/German Shepherd, based on people's guesses alone!! I asked around and searched dog breed books. The verdict was Beagle/German Shepherd!! Beagle/German Shepherd. If this is true, that my mutt has both a medium-sized and large-sized canine within her DNA, then, presumably, Rose was random-bred!! That's right. Random-bred. So, my reputation in Blogville is an amazing love toward mutts and "Mystery Dogs"!! I'm cool with that. Because I have earned this reputation. I worked for it. I advocated on behalf of mutts. Tirelessly. Slowly creating this reputation, board by board like a group of construction workers building houses. It was sluggishly-paced. Like some gooey, slimy worm. Then, this reputation sort of "took flight"!! In a more rapid velocity, like some young boy's remote-controlled airplane. Up, up, up, higher and higher, above the city's power lines it soars. Like freedom. So long as the young boy keeps operating his airplane, there are minimal chances of it coming crashing down!! Around this same time, my writing became "known", as well!! Blogville is a rare place where I feel loved and accepted. For who I am. Yes, I'm weird and a little bit crazy!! Is that negative? In Blogville, I don't feel like a misfit, because I'm not alone anymore!! And for that, I am grateful. So very grateful.
