We all know that when it comes to pets, we’re not in charge.
We are their feeders and servants, pretending we have control but knowing that the second our pet gives us those puppy dog eyes we will melt and give them whatever they want.
Bethany Coleman knows this well.
She didn’t choose to adopt a second dog – her first dog, Rogue made that decision for her.
Bethany was out for a walk when her dog, Rogue, noticed her twin. Not her actual twin, to be clear, but a dog that looked just like Rogue.
That dog’s name was Beast. He’d been hanging out in at the local farmers market with Last Hope K9 Rescue, along with other dogs looking for adoption.
The moment Rogue’s eyes landed on Beast, she was in love – and when Bethany saw the similarities, she knew she had no choice but to bring Beast home.
‘Tyson, my boyfriend aka the dad, really wanted another dog but I was so against the idea,’ Bethany told BoredPanda. ‘WE already had two senior cats that I brought into the relationship and our puppy Rogue.
‘I was not about to add one more animal to the mix.’
But while Bethany wasn’t thinking of getting another pet, Rogue had different plans. It was love at first sight, and Beast had to join the family.
‘He was Rogue’s twin,’ said Bethany. ‘They also got along and immediately started playing with one another. So right then and there I started filling out the paperwork.’
A few months later and the matching pups have settled into their home. They’re best friends and couldn’t be happier. The same goes for Bethany.
