After many years of living alone, I started to get lonely. True, there were always days when I was lonely, about in my early thirties I started feeling lonely more and more. Finally, my mom suggested I get a dog. I was reluctant at first but after a while, I decided it was a good idea. It was a challenge at first, training it and everything, but even on the first night when it lay in bed with me, I knew it was worth it. Though I doubted it in the morning when I found out it peed in bed.
