I am not going to tire you with boring, heartbreaking long sentences, nor go through Billy’s rescue story again. Most of you probably follow me because of him, so I don’t need to introduce him to you. He has been shared so many times already anyway, that it’s more enough.
I was going to take a day off my blog today, so this is not a typical post either. I just got a message from Billy’s mum about half an hour ago, so guess who’s not taking a day off! “Happy second year anniversary” said that message, accompanied by the photo of Billy on the beach.
Guess who had completely forgotten about it? Me! Two years ago, on a Friday night, I first saw him in flesh and blood, being pulled out of its box at the clinic, and I remember that moment like it was yesterday. On November 7th, 2014, I became who I am today, and I owe it all to that dog.
There are a couple of reasons why I chose to write about him (again), and the first one is to punish myself for forgetting what day it is today. The second one is that he is simply too gorgeous, to have his new pictures go unnoticed – I just wanted you to admire his awesomeness, and the third reason is that I simply could not help it.
Billy has been a part of my life for two years now, or way or the other. After all this time, I have completely forgotten who he was. Today, he is just the funny, gorgeous dog of a friend who is too proud of him and keeps sending me his photos – accompanied by the funniest captions ever (I;m copying them in this post), celebrates his rescue and adoption birthday and keeps count on the number of countries and cities Billy has visited.
And this is as far as I want to go, digging into their lives one more time. There was always something about that that dog that always made people want to know and see more and more of him – Billy had fans here in Greece, who begged us to let them visit him just once, as if he was a monument, and I know he has fans in Switzerland too. But I guess it’s about time we let him be – or maybe not.
Anyway, happy birthday Billy. I’m sorry for forgetting about it – although I know you couldn’t care less.
