Dear Puppy…

Dear Puppy, I’m sorry that the last couple of weeks have been tough. I wish I could promise it was going to get better soon, but I’m not so sure. The thing is, sometimes us humans get things wrong. We take on more than we can cope with and then when something goes wrong, we end up in a bit of a difficult position. And that’s what happened to us.
