My wife and I were in our late thirties when we met.
Istri saya dan saya berusia tiga-puluhan akhir ketika kami bertemu.

Kids just weren’t in the cards for us.
Anak-anak bukanlah sesuatu yang mungkin untuk kami.

I always thought I would have been a good dad, but time just went by and it never happened.
Aku selalu berpikir bahwa aku akan jadi ayah yang baik, tapi waktu berlalu dan itu tidak pernah terjadi.

So we raised a little family of dachshunds instead.
Jadi alih-alih kami membesarkan keluarga kecil anjing sosis.

We got Ozzie and Eva shortly after getting together.
Kami mendapatkan Ozzie dan Eva setelah kami menikah.

They both lived for thirteen years.
Mereka berdua hidup selama tiga belas tahun.

Having two extra lives in the house was a wonderful thing.
Memiliki tambahan dua kehidupan di dalam rumah adalah hal yang luar biasa.

They needed to be cared for.
Mereka perlu diperhatikan.

They gave and received love.
Mereka memberi dan menerima kasih sayang.

I imagine that it’s a little like having a kid.
Saya bayangkan itu hampir sama dengan memiliki anak.

When Oscar passed away, I was so distraught that I passed out on the floor of the vet.
Ketika Oscar meninggal dunia, saya begitu putus asa sehingga saya pingsan di lantai klinik dokter hewan.

Eva lived for another year, and after she died, we decided to wait before adopting again.
Eva hidup hingga setahun kemudian, dan setelah dia meninggal kami memutuskan untuk menunggu sebelum mengadopsi lagi.

We lasted about a year.
Kami bertahan hingga satu tahun.

Pepper came from a high kill shelter in Los Angeles.
Pepper berasal dari tempat perlindungan “high-shelter” di Los Angeles.
* “High-kill” shelter adalah tempat perlindungan hewan yang memiliki batas waktu dan menidurkan hewan yang sudah tinggal lama di tempat tersebut untuk memberi ruang bagi hewan baru yang datang.

She was terrified for the first few weeks and wouldn’t come near us.
Dia takut di minggu-minggu pertama dan tidak mau dekat dengan kami.

But she trusts us now.
Tapi dia mempercayai kami sekarang.

She is definitely a Daddy’s girl.
Dia pastinya anak Ayah sekarang.
