When you bring a puppy home, you know that dogs don't live as long as humans.
Somewhere in the back of your mind, you know that one day you'll have to face losing that puppy.
But you don't have to think about that yet. That's a long way away.
Right now, he's just a cute little puppy with soft little puppy fur, and sharp little puppy teeth.
He'll make a good companion for your guitar playing, soon to be driving, teenage son.
Hello, young fellow. You've got some mighty big shoes to fill.
