“Mom, I found a puppy on the side of the road…” I said hesitantly. “Please don’t bring it home,” my mother pleaded. It wasn’t that she didn’t have a huge soft spot for animals; she’s where I got my compassion for animals from. It was just that we already had more than enough at home.
“But it’s just one dog!” I argued.
“Try to find someone who can take her! Ask your friends,” she suggested sympathetically.
