Today’s RED Hearts post is from Annie Littlewood, 21, reporting from Overland Park, Kansas, who has advice on pet ownership:
I always had a dog during childhood. Our last dog, a German shepherd named Buddy Love, had to be put to sleep a couple of months after I graduated from high school.
It took four years for me to finally decide it was time for a new companion. Then for months, my boyfriend Pieter and I discussed making a home for our friend’s Boxer’s soon-to-be puppies. When we met Captain Mauser, two days after his birth, we knew immediately he was the one.
