There’s something I need to tell you. I went to this event.
It’s no secret I love dogs. And it’s also no secret I love other people’s dogs because I can enjoy the benefits of playing with them without any of the responsibilities of caring for them.
But then something happened.
We went to Oklahoma to visit cousins. And I found my son like this.
This is him with his friend Bones. I melted upon seeing the joy on my boy’s face with this puppy, Bones.
“Bones-ee, oh Bones-ee!” he would call.
And then one day we hung out with this dog Riley, who is so big he might as well be a horse. The boy was chasing and calling out for Riley the whole time.
This is a boy who needs a dog.
I’m not ready to get a dog. I can barely take care of the people already in my house.
But. I’m almost there.
So we visited the animal shelter. This was a little research event for us. To get familiar with the process, should the time come for a little canine companion.
