~ Nikki, Sam and Jessie ~
Three years ago, Nikki welcomed Cavoodle puppy, Jessie, into her family. Since then, they have all formed a very special bond and it’s evident Jessie has had a big impact.
Before adopting Jessie, Nikki’s daughter, Sam, had always had severe cynophobia, or a fear of dogs. She would avoid situations where she might meet a dog and couldn’t go near one. They had tried many different things, including hypnotherapy, but Sam would still become very anxious around dogs. As she grew up, Sam’s phobia slowly reduced and so Nikki felt it was time to get a dog to help.
Nikki and her family had put their names down for a puppy and were waiting for some time. Then, one day in 2019, they heard of a new litter of Cavoodle puppies right around the corner from them. Nikki decided to meet them. One of the six was quiet but friendly and was excited to meet her. From the moment they met, Nikki knew that this puppy, Jessie, had found her home.
Having a new puppy around was a big adjustment for Nikki and her family. Nikki hadn’t had dogs before Jessie, so it was a bit of a learning curve for everyone. However, it didn’t take very long before Jessie stole the hearts of her new family!
With Jessie, Sam’s fear of dogs has decreased and they both enjoy the company of each other. In fact, Sam is the only one in their family who lets Jessie give her kisses! They spend a lot of time together and, now, you would never know she used to be extremely afraid of dogs.
Not only this, but Jessie is a great companion for Niki and encourages her to go out for walks and to be active. She just knows how to brighten someone’s day and bring a smile to their face. Even when they’re out for a walk, Jessie’s teddy bear-like appearance brings a bit of happiness to anyone they pass by.
Since having Jessie, Nikki has become a proud dog person. She feels that everyone is a dog person, they just don’t know it until they find the right dog. Jessie has been life-changing for Nikki and her family. She has brought so much joy, love and happiness into their home and the bond they have all formed is so special.
