If you aren’t seduced yet, you will be..

Please read with caution, it’s only going to get more and more seductive on this blog.

If you’ve been here before, you know that I post some very very beautiful imagery, and often times described as seductive.

Or maybe I’m the only one that reads this and thinks that..

Regardless, here we are.

I like German Shepherds, in fact, I love them.

I got my first and only German Shepherd back in November 2014. Her name is Cortana, from Halo.

Ever since that day, I’ve been in love with German Shepherds.

Now I know that a lot of people like these dogs, and then a lot of people don’t like these dogs. Whether it be from past experiences or misconceptions.

I can understand, past experiences can really mess us up, but if you’re going off of what someone else is saying? I invite you to form your own opinion.

If you’re ever lucky enough to meet Cortana, I promise that you’ll love her.

She is by far the most playful, nice, but calm and collected dog I’ve ever met. Yet, I’m lucky enough to call her my own.

I was so nervous on the way to pick her up, it was a 6 hour drive, so I had plenty of time to worry and think. I was primarily concerned with her being gone by the time I got there. Had she been, the past year and a half of my life would’ve been completely different.

I left at about 5 A.M from my home, and set off on the 12 hour journey to pick up my very own 7 week old German Shepherd. Now, I am not the kind of guy who enjoys long drives, in fact, I HATE them. If it’s any longer than 3 hours, I start to have a hard time with it.

At about 8 A.M, three hours into my drive, I was cruising along and I see something in the distance that made my heart skip a beat.

I bet you can guess what it was…

A state trooper using radar on my direction of traffic. Now I am no criminal, but sometimes I go a mile or two about the 15 mile per hour cushion zone. So before I knew it, those pretty blue lights were behind me. The average person should have no issues obeying the speed limit, I am not the average person however.

I rolled down my window, he asked for the usual information. He then informed me I was going 81 mph in I think it was a 70. So automatically it’s considered reckless, but the trooper gave me a break and knocked it down so it was just a fine, and not a mandatory court date. It’s hard to see the positives though after receiving a ticket..

Brushed it off, then there I was headed out again, a total of about 3 hours away. Now I really was hoping she’d still be there. I’m not really a big fan of getting tickets for no reason.

Fast forward about 3 hours, the GPS is telling me I’m minutes away. I am getting quite nervous, I don’t really know what to expect. I pulled up the seller’s house and gave them a call to let them know I had arrived. They came out and greeted me and then took me inside to see my new puppy.

Upon entering, I could see about 4 puppies left, 3 males and 1 female. I had planned on getting a female German Shepherd and there she was, right before my eyes. We made small talk but I was back in the road in about 10 minutes. I gave them cash, they gave me puppy. I was happy. Still am.

I was dreading the drive home, another 6 hours back that I knew I had to obey the speed limit with. I thought Cortana would be difficult on the way back home but she was actually extremely well behaved. This was a great sign to me, I really hoped my puppy wouldn’t be a hassle, after all, I was using my brother’s car.

At this point, I felt so relieved, after a long 12 hour drive, I finally had a puppy that I had wanted for so long. I had no idea how much my life would change because of this dog. She loves me very much and I match her love and then some.

So the bottom line is, if you’re looking to get your first puppy and it’s a long drive, do it.

Trust me you’ll be happy you did.

If I could leave you with 5 tips on how to travel long distances while containing excitement and other emotions, here they are:

  1. Get your playlists ready, 12 hours driving without your favorite music is a nightmare. Thanks Spotify..
  2. Prepare snacks and drinks, it’s very important to stay hydrated but don’t cause the need for more bathroom breaks than you need.
  3. Let someone who is close to you know where you are going, and invite them if possible. Two people will make a trip a lot better if it’s someone you like.
  4. Make sure your gas is topped off before you leave and use a gas friendly car preferably.
  5. Keep emergency contact information handy, the last thing you want is breaking down on the side of the road with no one to help. I know my friends at Manassas Towing Service would be there for me, even though they primarily focus on only towing Manassas. It pays to network with people.

 

P.S: She was laying on my while writing this, so precious.
