What Happens When A Dog Gets To Choose It’s Own Best Friend

Just imagine talking your puppy to the shelter and letting the pup decide who to adopt. Just lead your puppy through the shelter and see what animal they are drawn to.  As Christina (the human) led Raven (mischievous Tamaskan puppy) around she couldn’t have imagined how this was going to change three lives!

“Raven was in no hurry to pick out a new best friend at the shelter.  And last August, she was choosing a kitten at the animal shelter in Lubbock, Texas — a kitten she could grow old with.

So one by one, four kittens were brought before Raven. Some didn’t show much interest. Others just weren’t into Raven’s gentle nuzzling.

Except that one kitten. A formidable feline named Woodhouse.

Woodhouse would be The One.

Raven, a Tamaskan husky, arrived at Christina’s home as a puppy last July.

A month later, Christina went looking for a kitten to be Raven’s new best friend.

But you don’t choose someone’s best friend for them.

“I wanted them to be able to get along well,” Christina explains. “So I wanted her to actually meet the cat and have the cat get along with the dog as well.”

Today, the pair is inseparable.

“They are perfect with each other. They don’t cuddle as much as they used to when they were a puppy and kitten. But they’re still always together, always playing together.

Woodhouse actually chases the dog around the house,” she adds. “And they like to play tag.”

They celebrate birthdays together.

And at the end of the day, they chill together. Because some things never change.


“I had always wanted a dog and a cat to grow up together. It’s been like a life goal,” her owner Christina, who didn’t want her last name published, tells The Dodo.  And, in this case, it couldn’t have worked out better.

We’ve all heard stories of dogs and cats not getting along. Some people have a dog and cat that get along famously. Others have situations where the two can’t be in the same room at the same time. We know of one family where the stress level got so high because of this that they had to choose one and find a new home for the other.  Christina figured out the smartest way to handle this situation. And, if they ever have a bad day, Christina can always blame Raven for the choice 😉

We would have had to rewrite our standard libraries pro-essay-writer.com and debug code in a new paradigm.
