Before my wife and I bought our first house two years ago, we were perfectly happy with our two cats. We were even contemplating getting a third one after we became first time homeowners in April of 2020. Given how that year turned out we were just glad to get into an amazing little house we could finally call home and since we couldn’t go anywhere, we just immersed ourselves into home projects. By the end of the fall that year we shaped up our backyard and made it look even more adorable. And then, one cool and bright Sunday morning as I was waiting for football to start, I stared out of our kitchen window and into the backyard and realized; we needed a dog.
