My little guy needs an article all to himself.

Happy Birthday Bucko, This One Is For You

September 29th, 2019. That is when I picked up my dog from Aggieland Humane in College Station Texas. I chose to get him following a really hard breakup and I just needed some kind of companion by my side, so Bucko was the result. It's funny thinking about my decision to get a dog. I had been wanting one for a while but I just either never had the money or the time to get one. He wasn't even my first choice. My first choice was a Golden Retriever but I quickly found out that those dogs are super expensive, next I took a trip to the Fort Worth Animal Shelter where I picked a dog but found out they had misinformed me about the dog's health. I unfortunately had to return him. Finally, came back to College Station to check out Aggieland Humane to see if they had the dog I wanted. I saw on their site that they had a puppy named Hermione who was probably the cutest puppy ever. I couldn't get her either... So finally I looked over and made eye contact with this goofy pup who was sitting there wagging his little tail between his legs. One of the biggest identifiers to determine if I wanted to get a dog was what he was doing when I walked by. If he was barking and going crazy he wasn't for me. Bucko was completely calm, I looked at him and said,

I'll take this one.

That Is when our journey started. Bucko is now my best friend, my adventure buddy, and sometimes a means for God to keep me steady. He loves me unconditionally, and even when I mess up and forget to let him out he runs back to me every time. Bucko you can't read this because you're a dog, but I love you.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
