It is every child's dream to have a pet. I had fish. Boring. I always wanted a dog but never got one. Too much work. You won't take care of it. That is what I was always told. I pleaded my case time and time again but to no avail.
That all changed a few years ago when my wife and I adopted a puppy, a cute, adorable, energetic runt with a great personality. She loves to play. She loves to eat. She loves to get her belly rubbed. She loves sticking her head out the window when we drive (slowly of course). She acts like she has not seen you in days even if you are gone for 5 minutes. She loves unconditionally. She makes us happy and we do all we can to repay the favor.
She gets the best food, the best toys, the best care, etc. She is the princess of the house. She is spoiled beyond belief but she is worth every penny. Today is a good day to celebrate your puppy, but your puppy should be loved and cared for every day. She is more than a puppy though, she is a member of our family.
