From the start of the pandemic I thought I would be lonely and not have anyone to play with, but little did I know one day would change my life forever. It all started on August 12, 2020 when I was going to be able to see my best friend after not seeing her for about 6 months, just that by itself made that day one of the best in a long time. Little did I know something better would happen on that day. A dog breeder sent my mom a message saying that she just had the cutest chihuahua on the planet. The next day we drove for more than three hours just to see her. When my eyes spotted her my face glowed up, from that second I knew I was going to call her Angel because she was one. On september 26, I brought her home with me and I knew I would forever love her.
One year later the pandemic is still here, but thankfully the love I have for her is also still here. If there is something I have learned from this pandemic is that even though we all have our bad moments we also have great moments.
