I made friends like that after I graduated college and moved across the country twice, but once I got married, my good-timing man-friend reservoir dried right up.
I’m the super extroverted guy chatting about baseball and the weather in line at the grocery store.
The puppy may have been sold as a pet (since it had some problems that prevented it from being shown) and an unethical person did not have the dog desexed and is still breeding puppies. AKC does not control breeding, approve litters, or guarantee soundness.
Unfortunately, in the hands of some unethical breeders, it doesn't even guarantee that the dog is purebred.
The wife and I would stay home with the dogs, hang out, and play games.
We’d talk, listen to records and do married couple stuff. Because even though I missed having close friends, for a long time I wasn’t doing much to rectify it. I’d meet people, we’d get along, but we’d never follow up. My problem, I now realize, was that I had become comfortable in my rut.
That said, I thought I would take some time here to give the adults who have been victimized out there some general advice.
