My mom never liked dogs, at least she said she never did. Despite her claim, there was only one time that the house had no dogs, it was a long while but most of the time we had at least one.

In 2007 my mom started talking about a friend who wanted to give her a puppy, I couldn’t even believe she was talking about puppies let alone actually accepting the offer to adopt one. A few months later she brought our little Champagne home and ever since then, every time she wakes me up in the morning she reminds me of all the times we spent together with my mom.
