Like many fur-rents, our pups mean the world to us. They are not just “dogs”. They are family. Our children. And to me, so much more. I’ve been wanting to do something for quite some time now and finally bit the bullet over the weekend. To be able to check just one more item off my bucket list is not the big deal. The BIG DEAL is what it is!
That’s One More Check Off the Good Ole Bucket List!
There is nothing more in this World that I could love more than I do my furkids.
When Titan came into our lives in 2010, he taught me so many things about bully’s in general, unconditional love, and myself. Our bond is inseparable.
In 2015, when we brought Zue Zue into our lives, I learned about a little Princess who had 9 years of an almost nightmare of a life and finally hit the lottery.
The unconditional love these two show me and the Daddy is unlike any other I’ve ever experienced.
The unconditional love I have for these two Godsends is what drove me to my next check mark.
When the Love is So Strong You Want Everyone To Know About It
And this is exactly what I did. Over the years, I thought about getting a profile done of Titan. A Profile in the form of a tattoo for myself. The idea evolved over the years and finally became a reality last weekend.
Although I didn’t go with a profile, I do “brand” myself with my undying and unconditional love for Titan and Zue. Some may not like the idea of tattoos so feel free to turn back now.
After careful consideration on what I wanted to do and how I wanted to represent it to the World, this is what I got.
I have several other tattoos with symbolic meanings, so this wasn’t the first. I have:
- Two hearts with Mom and Dad in them on my right shoulder. I got this in 2002 when my Father passed. My Mother had passed 30+ years earlier.
- A bleeding red rose going through a heart on my left breast. This was the second I got and symbolizes all the broken hearts I’ve had over the years.
- A tribal anklet with a red heart and my husband’s name in it. #3 after I got married.
- “Faith, Trust, Love” on my right wrist. This was after a rough period of time in my marriage.
- And finally, “My kids have paws” because the only children I do have, are furry and pawed.
This is Not the End
I’m sure I’m not finished with the memorable tats. I had the artist leave space between the names for when it’s time to add dates. God forbid, not anytime soon.
I still have plans of maybe portraits of their faces, one on each shoulder.
The memories I am making with these two will forever be branded in my mind, soul, and body.
This was something I had to do because I want everyone to know how much my furkids mean to me. I am proud of them and forever grateful for them being in my life.
May they forever be with me.
Over to You
Have you had furry children in your life that meant so much to you that you would do anything for them? If so, what kind of “crazy” things have you done?
