The Dog No One Wanted

Hazel on the first day we brought her home. She couldn’t relax because she was so scared.

20 years ago, my greatest want in life was a dog.

Married and childless by choice, I wanted a dog to feel complete. I was wrapped up in my career, but I needed something more. Growing up, dogs were always part of my life. They were both comfort and joy.

My husband was less sure. He too had grown up around dogs, but he was worried about the responsibility of taking on a pet.
