Adopt a dog. They are always excited to see you when you come home. They are great at snuggling. They fill your heart. They are cute. And there are so many in shelters just waiting to call you their human (or as our dogs say, hooman).
Make sure that you are ready though. It takes some time to adjust, but it’s worth it. And if you haven’t met Badger yet, he is the newest addition to our family. Such a sweet, goofy piggle boy. Or, man I guess since he is like 9.
