Here’s how Heidi became my dog.

Heidi is a twelve year old German shepherd who became my house companion in Costa Rica. As a pup, I initially meant to give her to my Dad upon my mother’s passing. I had hoped Heidi would keep my father company when I was away. But at that exact time, my spinster aunt took it upon herself to transplant herself to Fallbrook and live with my Dad. A move that was unanimously welcomed by everyone. I had this mental image of my Dad and her sister having a quiet life with Heidi. But as soon as I introduced the adorable puppy to my Dad and aunt, I began to feel the old woman’s unease. She told me that she’s not comfortable having a dog in the house. As my Dad later pointed out, she was almost mauled by a neighborhood dog when she was still a kid and had traumatized her. If I continue to push for the dog to stay, she said in a rather shrill voice, she will leave. So there and then, I knew that Heidi will be with me for the long haul.
