The life of a moving dog goes hand in hand with the life of a moving person. That’s because they share one thing: the experience of moving. So it only makes sense to share their moving stories as well. The first moving dog tale I have from my many moving experiences is of a seven-year-old rescue dog called Yogi. I’d heard his story hundreds of times before: When I was a little boy, my best friend would get him out from under the car that he was racing down the street with and take him for a joy ride.
It was a blast. The two of us had so much fun because Yogi was so mischievous and fun. My mother would call me when the car was a few blocks away from the new school, we’d just moved into because Yogi wanted to go see his new friends. I’d get out of the car and run after him, crying because I knew he wouldn’t see me again until the new school year started.
So when my wife got the car loaded and ready to go, I sat in the backseat and enjoyed the ride. My heart was filled with joy as I watched Yogi race along, heading towards his new home. We were so excited. But as we neared our destination, something about Yogi became anxious.
It wasn’t until we got to the new location that he spoke to us. It was as if he were talking to us inside my head. He was telling us that he was fine and ready to go but that we had to get him to the new location before he could go. We asked a lot of questions about his current condition and about moving to our new school. But he just looked at us and said, “I’m fine, mom. I just have to move.”
So with those few words from Yogi, I made it through the long and grueling moving process. As we finally reached our new school and sat in the classes, I was suddenly glad that I’d chosen to be part of moving day. That relief was so much sweeter than if I had let go and chosen to stay in my current school. Moving to a Special Education class was such a relief.
I know how hard moving can be but I also know that my job is to make sure that my child has a smooth transition into his new school. I have to make sure that everything is in good working order. And that’s where I come in. So if you find yourself in a similar situation, check things out. There’s nothing more important than your child’s happiness.
