I miss my sweet doggy

By DoctorPlatypus | Doctor Platypus | 6 May 2021

This is my little Rachel. I was lucky enough to be allowed to help take care of her for a year or so, before my engagement ended, but she is very much my ex's pet. I miss her quite a lot.

Here she is as a puppy, hoping for snackies.

And here she is a few years older, like she was when I lived in her house, napping on a pillow on the sofa behind my desk while I worked from home.

I really should adopt a puppy of my own, but I am afraid to take care of one all by myself. 

I love you Rachel.
