To Be a Mother


My boyfriend and I recently adopted a hound pup, Pierre, from a shelter. I have learned much about responsibility, expenses, and love. It takes tons of energy to keep take care of such a playful baby, but it is worth it. I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. My boyfriend and I gave him a middle name: Rigel, after the brightest star in the constellation of Orion, since he is our beaming star. He will grow into a bright, big, beautiful dog. While he can be vivacious, he is also calm and devoted.  Being Pierre’s mother has been nothing if not wonderful and exciting. I cannot wait to see the kind of dog he will become, and I cannot wait to see what kind of mother I will turn into. ​
