A Boy & His Loyal, Loving Dog Against The Universe

This is my current desktop wallpaper on my laptop, a wallpaper I downloaded from Smashing Website. It’s an astronaut with his dog, also an astronaut or dogstronaut, on what looks like an alien planet. This image resonates with me a whole lot. From the age 18 I have dreamed about exploring space in a spaceship and traveling the galaxy, visiting strange new worlds.  And always by my side is my faithful and loving companion my Golden Retriever Shawny. I got Shawny when she was a pup that same year back in 1994 and she was with me till 2005. I used to dream of being in a Star Trek like future with a lot more advancements, and I go to space to battle bad aliens and help the good ones.

The settings may have changed – at times it was just me, Shawny and 2 robots. Then it was me, a human female, Shawny and 2 robots. Sometimes it became me and a small team of 8 to 9 people or a larger crew in a much bigger spaceship. Sometimes it me and some others traveling together to get from one part of the galaxy to another. Whichever scenario I dream up about, one thing is the same – Shawny is there with me. Always at my side, sleeps in a comfy bed next to my bed. One large robot that I have with us, has this compartment that can house Shawny inside it, so she can safely lie as the robot carries her around, while I am in my spacesuit. Ofcourse we have protective shields around the robot and the humans so we are virtually invincible.

Whichever scenario I come up with or dream about or fall asleep to thinking about, one thing is for sure Shawny is always there with me, the loyal loving dog that she is. All these dreams and the image on the wallpaper is about is a boy and his faithful dog.
