The Waiting is the Hardest Part

So, I’m trying to make this whole process of getting a dog a little more relatable to those of you who have never had the joys of going through the process. Puppies are adorable. Going to pick out a cute, wriggling ball of fluff has its ups and downs though. I relate it

The horrible Nazis

Who do I love more?

to my very own Sophie’s Choice, a heartbreaking novel by William Styron and an award winning movie with Meryl Streep. You love all the puppies so much, but eventually, you have to choose who you love the most, the way Meryl did when a Nazi soldier forced her to choose between her son and daughter.

Currently, I’m in that wonderful phase (sic) where I’ve made one of the hardest decisions ever and now am just waiting for things to play out. It actually reminds me of the episode of The Simpsons where Homer has applied for a gun license and then has to wait three whole days before he can buy one. Of course, while he’s waiting, everyone from Flanders to his sisters-in-law go by. Every time I turn around, there are puppy posts on Facebook or someone walks by with the cutest dog ever.

In the meantime, while I figure out what to do with myself, enjoy this gorgeous photo of Mark making his own Sophie’s Choice.

I love you the most!
