Happy Father’s Day to all the guide dog daddy’s out there

It is Nash and my second Father’s Day together, and I am not one for the Hallmark holidays, but this year, I am thinking about things a little differently. When Nash and I first got together, I would always chuckle every time I would say a sentence to him that included the word Daddy in it. I thought it absolutely ludicrous to refer to one as a father to a dog. Then time went by and I really got to tknow the Nashster. I found my self frequently saying things to Nash like, “come to daddy,” “who’s daddy’s cute little friend,” “daddy’s tired,” “daddy’s coming to bed,” and so one and so on. You can say in the year and a few month’s that Nash and I have been together, I have gotten over my original bias of referring to yourself as a daddy or mommy for a dog. I believe I have changed my way of thinking as a Dad as only someone who physically gives birth to someone to a Dad being someone who cares for and takes care of someone, like I do with Nash. So to all the Men out there who take care of a guide dog, Happy Father’s Day, and yes that sentence doesn’t sound so silly to me anymore.
