Guest Post: A Love Letter to Ximmy

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I asked readers to write a love letter to their DINOS and picked a winning essay.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing all of the entries.

Here’s what Lynsie wrote:


My dearest Ximmy,

You are my challenge, my anxiety, and my stress.  You are also my baby, my best friend, and a bed hog.

I am sorry that you have your “issues”, as we call them, but I am never sorry that you are mine.

Think about it baby girl, you stress in the car, but you go to training class every Wednesday night!

You have anxiety over crowded places, but you have gotten your Rally Novice title and are working on your Rally Advanced title.

Some would term you a “bad dog”, and a few have told me you should not go out in public, and on those really bad days, I am sorry to say, I have felt the same.  But then you look at me with those big brown eyes, wag your tail, and lean on me, and my heart feels lighter, and I know that those people don’t see the real you, but I do, and I will never give you up.

You are my light.
