We have the pleasure of interacting with Calvin + Yuki every day on social media, but this is the first time we got to hear their real, raw story + we are absolutely blown away! I could sense the beauty and strength radiating through each + every photo of Yuki, but now I understand why! We definitely consider this the LUCK OF YUKI.
CHECK IT OUT ↓
FIRST, TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF
“Hi, my name is Calvin and I’m 16. I live with my family in Coquitlam B.C. I’m currently still in school and my hobbies are taking my pup out on hikes and taking pictures of her. I met Yuki through luck, but mostly bad luck.”
NOW, TELL US ABOUT YOUR PUP
“I have begged my parents to have the chance to adopt a dog through all my life and it finally happened last year. Sadly, we got robbed for the 3rd time in a few years in early 2016. Our prize possessions got lost and my mother suffered a severe shock since she walked in on the people robbing us. Tired of constantly getting our possessions stolen, we decided to ask the kind police officer what we could do. His answer was to get a dog. And that is how my parents agreed. However, finding a dog that met my parent’s requirements (no drooling and doesn’t shed too much and etc.) was tough, so I lied and told them that the rough collies had a lot of fur but didn’t shed too much (totally wrong ) Yuki was the first dog we met and she was the last of the litter. Since she was so shy, everyone gave up on her but we saw love and an adventurous spirit inside of her. We instantly fell in love with her and that’s how we decided to do the best we could to help her socialize. Today, she’s the most sociable dog I know and you can’t keep her from asking strangers for cuddles.”
FINALLY, OUR FAVORITE PART: TELL US ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PUP
“Meeting her has let me go open up myself and to really socialize with people. We moved here just 2 years ago on June 19th, 2015 from Montreal and it really took a hit on me. I was depressed since it was so different and really didn’t know how to meet new people due to the language barrier. It got so bad that I started having really bad headaches and constant stomachaches. Meeting her was like making my first friend in a different province. She made me go out and meet new people. She’s the reason why I feel so much better and why I have such amazing friends.”
