If I don’t get what I want, then I have a simple solution: cry. This summer I had one mission, for I was going to get a dog. June went by in a blink of an eye, so my begging began in July. My mom had said I could get a dog if I found the right one. Scrolling through puppy sites for hours each day, I found love at first sight. However, my dreams were crushed by one simply word, “NO.” I cried …a lot and said it wasn’t fair because mom said I could. My dad said she must keep her word and next thing I know we are in the van with a whimpering fuzz ball in a cage in the back. Getting our new fuzz baby home was such a joy! He was the sweetest thing ever and loves to cuddle. I thought the sun would be shining for the rest of my days with my dog Boomer by my side. 

Boy oh boy, get a load of this… I have never been so wrong in my entire life. Getting a puppy is like having a vicious baby that needs attention 24/7. He bites everything, he jumps on everyone, and he eats everything. He’s always getting yelled at for something. He no longer cuddles with me without the consequence of me losing a chunk of my hair, and he doesn’t play without leaving battle wounds all over my arms and legs. However, the one thing that keeps me in love with him is “the look.” This puppy knows how to play people. If he wants attention, he lures people in with a simple head tilt and tongue out move. I fall for it every time. 

Although my puppy is mean as all get out, I absolutely adore him. Every morning he’s so exciting to see me, and every night as I put him to bed he gives me puppy kisses on my hand. His precious little eyes are filled with love, and his energetic tail wags of happiness. He always has to be sitting in my lap, and I always have to play with him. Boomer has helped me through my rough days because seeing him always makes me smile. 

 I realize that he is just going through the normal puppy stage, but he is such a troublemaker. Training him day by day is so difficult. I say sit and he hears jumps, or I say no and he hears yes. However, he is learning slowly and improving a little each week. Although my days might not be filled with sunshine, I definitely love my dog no matter how rotten he can be.
