My niece got a new puppy....and so that means that all I have been hearing is, 'Mom, can we get a puppy???' 'How come we can't....they are so cute! They sleep all the time.' ...and various versions of the same thought. And as I watched I saw my precious children love these little puppies and snuggle them and feel the soft fur against their cheeks. I couldn't help but remember my first puppy, and how he curled into my lap and fell fast asleep...it brings back memories!
