Puppy Love

Cute Dog Puppy

He was awkward, legs too long, feet too big. He bumped into everything in his path and ate without cease. He would grow through it into a man in a few years, but now he was my ungainly teen. He had a bad case of puppy love over the boy next door. Well, I told myself it was puppy love. I also told myself to be ready to accept the truth if it wasn’t just a teen phase. My internal dialog . . .
