Stephen shared that he found Puppi sitting on a mountaintop in the year 2004. Stephen recalled that the only time he has been away from Puppi was when he was deployed in Iraq.
Puppi became Stephen’s service dog after he got home from serving the war in Iraq. Stephen shared that Puppi has been through the most challenging times with him.
Stephen recalled that he got Burma four years ago when a homeless girl approached him with a box of kittens. Stephen knew right away that he wanted to keep the cat that the stranger handed to him.
Stephen shared that Burma does not like being held at all. Burma has his way of showing love, and being cuddled is not one of them. Burma prefers to be on the go and does not want to lay around in bed all day.
Stephen shared that her fur babies get along so well, and take care of each other like how siblings would. Stephen said that being with his fur babies helped distract him from the loneliness that he has been feeling.
Burma and Puppi gave him the companionship that he never knew that he needed. Stephen believes that his dog is happy to be with him, and does not care where they are going, or if she feels cold at all.
Stephen described his pets as his best friends, and he treats both Burma and Puppy as his family. Stephen admitted that he does not know what he would do without them at all.
