Part Four: Advice Your Mother Never Gave... > Decisions Are Not Made in Isolation

Chapter Twenty-Nine. Decisions Are Not Made in Isolation

Two years ago, Julie bought a puppy. She’d been talking about getting a dog for a long time, and she finally decided to get one. “Garth,” a golden retriever, now weighs nearly 100 pounds and provides Julie with a wealth of love and companionship.

Because Garth loves to romp and play, Julie has to take him on regular visits to the park.
