I got a puppy for graduation. He is a beagle/boston terrier. I named him Takashi, after the Japanese artist. He's amazing.
It's amazing to me how much responsibility it is to have a dog. it's almsot like having a child. I have to watch him every moment, potty train him, teach him right from wrong, spend time with him. It's a full time job. I love him so much, and it's a joy to have him here for Christmas. It's only 3 days away, and I haven't even shopped yet. My sister is coming into town tonight, and my brother and his wife are coming soon too.
I love the holidays. And i'm ready for that new year too.
