ever since stitch and chocolate came into my life, i’ve been wanting to tell their story and also do a photo feature of them with nhan, since he has made a big impact on their lives. i’m really excited to be sharing this and hope you guys enjoy their little story!
2 years ago, nhan hadn’t really planned or looked into being a dog owner. until one day, he received an email from a friend in california asking if anyone would save a terrier/poodle puppy from a kill shelter. apparently the terrier/poodle called “bowser” (now renamed to stitch), was scheduled to be put to sleep because his time in the kill shelter was up. without a pause, nhan instantly wanted to save stitch and take care of him.
now 2 years later, stitch and nhan are so attached to each other, they are inseparable! when i see them two together, i know it was meant to be. not only did nhan save stitch, but stitch had saved him too. they are so lucky to have each other!
now, just about a year and half after nhan got stitch, we encountered another puppy that was in need of some training. this puppy, named “lulu” (now named chocolate), is also a mix…chihuahua/pomeranian (you probably saw him in my previous post). unfortunately, chocolate was given away and then badly abused. thankfully, his original owner found out and took him back right away. but it really scarred chocolate and made him into a ferocious little puppy. that’s when nhan was asked to help train chocolate since he did such a good job with stitch. (by the way, people who know nhan, call him the dog whisperer!)
i remember the first time i met chocolate, he was so afraid of me he would try every way to avoid me, if i came close to him he would start to growl. i have to admit, i was actually scared of him! but luckily, it only took a few days for chocolate to trust me and allow me to hold him. from that point, i started to see his softer side and understand where he came from and why he behaves the way he does. if you had asked me then, i wouldn’t have even thought chocolate would grow on me that quick. so it was to my own surprise, i wanted to keep him within that week. nhan asked if we could keep him and just like that, he became ours.
ever since chocolate joined our little family, him and stitch got a long so well, they are like brothers and best friends… at least thats what i like to think! it is hard to tell they like each other sometimes, but at the end of the day, when they are both exhausted, you will find one of them plop right next to the other, and rest their head on one another. we were very fortunate to have found them both and have them be part of our lives.
love you boys!
