Goldilocks and the Wolf - How He Rescued Me from Abuse
That’s us – Goldilocks and the Wolf.
Our story begins 5 years ago…
I adopted a husky named Kyro but he didn’t know he’d be the one who would end up rescuing me.
I found him through an ad on Craigslist. His mother had abandoned Kyro and his 9 siblings. The owner sent out a plea online for assistance in raising the puppies. I gladly volunteered and helped to bottle feed, raise and find the puppies homes. Kyro ended up coming home with me because I couldn’t resist his chunky puppy belly!
At that time I was trapped in an abusive relationship, in which I had lost all hope of escaping.
Kyro became my excuse to go on adventures and escape the situation.
His blue eyes were a motivation to seek happiness that I couldn’t ignore.
I left my ex due to him beginning to target Kyro with his rage. Kyro was and is my world - I couldn’t bare to see anything happen to him.
After several months of us being out of the situation and adventuring around - I found a deep passion for photography.
Capturing our travels together became my inspiration and gave me the bravery to find my happiness and strength once again.
A peace settled in my soul and I found our daily adventures to be a healing process that started to repair me inside and out.
The nickname Goldilocks and the Wolf was given to us by my Mother. With my long blonde hair and Kyro’s Agouti coloring - the name just stuck. It became my Instagram name and the name of my photography business.
Through the lens of my camera I tried to capture the ‘Fairy-tale’ moments we were seeing in our journeys together.
Fairy-tales certainly are better when you have a Knight in shining armor. Or, in my case, a blue-eyed hero covered in fur.
Together we have learned to stop and enjoy even the most simple moments.
With Kyro by my side I’ve learned to be brave and try things I would have never considered before. For example, waking up at 3AM to hike a mountain just to watch the sun crest over the mountains.
Where would I be had Kyro not come into my life? I honestly can’t answer that question.
Kyro raised a shroud from my life. He tore back all of my fears and really saw right into my soul.
