Dogs can change your life forever, or at least they will make it way better, and this is what happened to this man, who took a decision that changed his life completely. David Hartwig is a man who lives in his farm in Texas; he is working in making horse shoes which is a metal piece to protect the horse’s hoof. Christmas was coming closer, and he was working, suddenly he found a litter of puppies in the barn, they belong to his friend.
The first thing that comes to his mind is to bring his wife a special Christmas gift this year, which is a puppy. It took a moment to decide to take one puppy as a gift for his wife, he took the puppy that night back home, but suddenly while he was driving, he returned back and decided not to take that puppy. He remembered he had noticed a puppy that was standing alone, when all the other puppies were snuggling. He drove back and took that lonely puppy. That was the decision that changed this man’s life.
Surprisingly, the dog was very energetic, playful, and smart. He started to train him well, the dog started to help the man in the farm, he trained him on very smart tricks, both of them went for some performances, they won a local competition, the media started to contact with them, they went all over the news and TV channels, the dog appeared also on an Opera Winfery show. His dog became a celebrity, and in the same time, he gave David Hartwig the life that he was always dreaming about.
It’s very heartbreaking to know that his dog passed away in 2007, after 14 amazing years. But David won’t forget him, the bond between them was very strong, he will always live in his memory.
