My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this year. My older daughter Madisyn is a 68W (Medic) in the CA Army National Guard. My younger daughter Emma just turned 18 and is graduating from high school in a few weeks.
4 years ago my wife went to the animal shelter to get a cat. Several dozen texts later I was the owner of an American Staffordshire Terrior. My older daughter knew Jake was the perfect dog for me. Madisyn was passing by the cages. As she stopped at a cage, Jake ran back to his mat, grabbed a plush toy, ran to Madisyn and eviscerated it then bent his ears and tilted his head in the cute puppy pose.
