My entire life I've always loved dogs, I always wanted one but never wanted to get one because I never felt like my life was stable enough to be able to provide it the proper care and attention that it deserved. Well this September seeing as I was turning 30 and I've become a lot more stable in life, I finally decided to take a leap of faith and get myself a pup. Little did I know that she was going to be a major pain in my ass, between medical issues and the fact that she using everything in the house EXCEPT her toys to chew on, she has cost me well over two thousand dollars in a matter of about 3 months. But none the less I love her as if she were my own flesh and blood child. She has gotten me through some rough patches, when everything was falling apart I knew I had to stay strong for her because if she can't depend on me then she doesn't have anyone to depend on. Everyone meet Artemis: Please comment on here with a short story about you and your pup and a picture so we know who you're talking about!
