Blogmas Day 9: My Lionhearted Gizmo

It is no secret how much I love my little furry friend, Gizmo. Without knowing it, Gizmo has taught me patience, love, and how to be selfless. His well being comes before anything else. He is my family. More importantly, Gizmo is my little Lionheart a term I use to describe him due to his small stature and larger than life personality. In his mind he is a huge Lion at the ready to protect what is his, including me.
Nevertheless, the more I think about it the more I realize that his Lionheart reveals itself at times when I am battling my inner demons. He is able to sense my hurt and my wave of emotions and come to the rescue. It is apparent to him when I am having an anxiety attack, or worse yet, a panic attack. At first I feared that I would scare him and cause him distress. After all how is a dog supposed to know how to deal with their human having an emotional episode? This is where he proves me wrong.
He pushes my fears aside, and proves how perceptive animals truly are by showing me love and compassion when I need it most. I am thankful for his Lionheart and wonderful ability to love me unconditionally.


We are lionhearts
And we stand together facing a war
And our love is gonna conquer it all
We are lionhearts

You’re never far from where I am
Like a lighthouse, bring me home
You’re never far from me
Let your spirit glow
Lionheart by Demi Lovato
