Kasper has taught me life's greatest lessons!

"You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before us!"
~~~ Robert Stevenson~~~
Two years ago Kasper came into our lives... This little white furry friend has taught me the greatest lessons ever!!
On July 7, 2011 my husband( Dean) rescued Kasper. At that time in my life I was not happy with the idea of bringing him home  because, only few months prior to Kasper coming  to our home our precious   little Diego had passed away very unexpectedly and my life  had changed forever.

My father in law was found dead and Kasper was his dog. When the police told Dean that there were signs of a dog in the house, we started to look for him every single day. He was no where to be found! We came to the conclusion that Kasper had taken off. We thought that perhaps my father in law had left the door opened.
 We made trips to the house every single day sometimes twice in one day.
On the 23rd day of going to the house we saw kasper for the first time!. Yes this little white dog was alive! He survived  for 23 days without water or food and he was all alone.
He survived by eating paper and drinking his own urine.  He spent days hiding from summer storms all alone in the dark. He never gave up! He fought until he was found.
When Dean brought him to our house he was scared of his own shadow. Afraid of everything even the sound of a light switch. He would spent most of his time in his kennel and did not bark  all. He would cry a lot and had such sad eyes! It broke my heart:(
 I remember Dean telling me that "All we have to do is give him love and he will come around!" My husband was right! He is now a different dog, full of life and happy to be alive. He is not afraid anymore.
 I would like to share this video that Dean made of Kasper it was the  first time he experienced the rain. I can not help but to cry as I watch this video. He has come a long ways from the first time he walked into our home.
 The lessons that Kasper has taught me are many but the two things I have learned are no matter how I feel about my weight loss journey or what others think of me, I can't never give up and I need to continue pushing forward. I know there will be storms along the way, days that I will not make healthy choices, days that I will feel unworthy to take care of my body, but I can not let anything get in the way of a healthier me. Kasper has taught me to BELIEVE in me! Our little Kasper was a warrior an example of endurance and I will be forever grateful to what he has taught me. He is my miracle and he inspires me to keep pushing forward.
If you are ever feeling like giving up through your own storms of your life, just think of my little Kasper how he NEVER gave up. He fought  until he was found.
Lets all continue to believe that we are worthy of having a healthy and fit body.
