My family recently made an addition: a 4-month-old puppy named Everett. After we met Everett on a trip to the Humane Society, he captured our hearts and we decided we had to bring him home.
I’ll admit that I was skeptical about owning a pet. It’s a lot of hard work and responsibility, not to mention the financial commitment. We all know that. Yet I had other reasons for being cautious about it as well.
