You were adorable. I fell in love at first sight. The thought of us snuggling together on the couch and drifting off to sleep came to mind. But then you saw my pedigree and then I saw the look on your face and in that second my entire world came crashing down like a black hole had opened up beneath me and I was sucked into the vacuum. As you walked away I thought “that's it, I'll never fall in love with another human again.” Other faces came and went but I think most of them passed me by once they saw me in all of my mopey lackluster. Then one day, that fateful day, I heard a voice and looked up and you were standing there. You said “fuck the pedigree, I only want slobbery tongue-kisses from you.” When you opened my cage my heart burst like a glitter-grenade, and that night as we lazed on the sofa you showed me my new pedigree and all it said was “I belong to you.” [Jackson McHugh]
