I've completed one more (awesome) item on my life list: I adopted a puppy! Her name is Vivian and she is a miniature bulldog. Vivi loves romping through the backyard, belly rubs and taking naps on the couch. Her hobbies include chewing, sitting and shaking hands. She has the softest ears and the best puppy breath around. I love having a little companion to care for and cuddle with and it is with great pleasure that I cross 'dog owner' off of my list.
