Dog

You love having a puppy.

We brought him home on April 22.

We first met him on March 12, when he was a few weeks old.

Daddy has been lugging newspapers home for a few weeks.

It’s been a while since we’ve had a dog in the house. Mommy’s old dog Dexter passed away on Jan. 22.

You and Dexter.

You and Dexter. “Desher,” is what you called him. You won’t remember him, but he was Mommy’s dog, for years before Daddy and Mommy met. He was old and mostly set in his ways by the time you got here.

We want you to have your own puppy, so that you two can grow up together.

And now you have one.

You insisted on holding him as we drove home.

But now that he’s been home for a week, we still haven’t decided on his exact name.

We’re calling him Oshie. After a hockey player. A player you met at the beginning of the season.

And now, you and Oshie are best of friends, when he’s not biting you, and you’re not hitting him with stuff.

It’s been a busy first week with Oshie.
