Some of my proudest moments as a counselor have had nothing to do with the hope I’ve helped bring into a child’s life (although those make me proud, too). They’ve been about puppies. When the parent girls’ and boy’s classes we teach at Daystar used to be longer versions, I had a section where I talked about pets. During that season and since, I’ve had multiple families tell me they bought their child a dog because of those talks. So, now, I wanted to share that information (and pressure) with you.
