Happy Birthday Bucko, This One Is For You
@joshseeks on Instagram

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.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.
