People always have troubles in their life. One of my troubles was when my dog got surgery. We were all sad but we knew it was for the best of him. When my dog got surgery it was only 2 weeks before Christmas so it wasn’t the best timing. When we dropped him off I was crying because I knew that when we picked him up he would be in pain and less active. Having a dog has always been fun and happy. I hate seeing him sleeping all day. When we picked him up all we heard was the crying of my dog in the background. He was put in a cage which made me feel insecure. When we picked him up we had to go to my grandma’s house to help clean the house because they just moved in and it was a huge house. I know we all have times when we wish we didn’t have to go through something but it is just another challenge in life. We aren’t supposed to live an easy life.
