We just got a new puppy a few weeks ago — an adorable mini-golden doodle. Her name is Lucy.

I have to tell ya that having a cute little puppy in the house does wonders for my sobriety.

Puppies and dogs live in the moment. They show unconditional love. They take you away from the worries and stresses of the real world.

There are great stories out there dogs helping folks recover from addiction.

I was never an animal lover when I was younger. I’m not sure why. But I’m becoming one now with Lucy. And that’s a good thing.
