PJ used to be an alcoholic and a drug addict. PJ said that he has been sober for over two years, and he did not have a job nor any accountability in his life.
PJ decided to start looking for a dog because he wanted to change and have some sense of responsibility in his life. Fortunately, PJ came across a Facebook post about a rescue group who pulled out a dog named Clove from a kill shelter.
PJ recalled that he knew he had to meet Clove as soon as he saw her face. Luckily, PJ just moved in into his new home when the shelter asked if he can pick Clover up.
PJ immediately drove to the shelter to pick Clove up. PJ recalled that Clove was so frightened of him, and Clove literally cowered in his presence on during her first few days at home.
PJ shared that he wanted Clove to open up because she was so timid around him, so he brought her to a nearby park the following morning. PJ recalled that Clove immediately transformed into a different dog who could not stop herself from running and being a dork.
PJ realized that Clove enjoys being outside, so he thought about exploring new places together with his new dog. PJ admitted that he has never walked in the woods, nor climbed any mountain before because he was used to being indoors.
PJ wanted to be closer to his new dog and thought that he should try going out some more for Clove’s sake. PJ Regan and Clove eventually started going out on hikes and seeing new sights together.
PJ said that he and his dog do not mind whether it is raining hard or the sun is shining so bright because they will travel regardless of the weather as long as they are together. PJ shared that traveling became their form of therapy, and they are now happier because of it.
