I have to admit, in the spring of 2017 when Entrepreneur mentioned he thought we should get another dog, I was less than thrilled. It had only been since September of 2015 when our golden retriever fur baby unexpectedly passed away. The pain still stabbed at my heart and the thought of dealing with puppyhood, Entrepreneur’s cancer, spring semester of teaching and a four-year-old grand girl all day was almost more than I could comprehend.
But, a year and a half later, I’ve definitely been launched into a new orbit again. Yes, that first year was all kinds of challenging and he’s still very much a work in progress, but I’m completely smitten. As a doodle, it’s almost impossible for me to keep up with the grooming. As a puppy, it’s almost equally impossible to keep up with his energy level. But we’re attached to each other in a way non-dog-lovers simply can’t understand.
I think I’ll keep him.
