Would you believe that my mom has never owned a dog in her adult life? Well, I’ve been wanting my mom to adopt a furry friend for years now and she finally did it. Granted, she had great reasons for not adopting a dog in recent years (which I wish more people would consider) – she was too busy with school and work, and my stepdad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Recently, however, we got good news on my stepdad and things are looking up. So when I tagged my mom in a post on the Arizona Animal Welfare League Facebook page, I hardly expected her to take it seriously. Then less than 24 hours later, my mom became a dog mom to the adorable Cooper. Allow me to introduce you to this super cute little muffin!
