I have given it much thought and I think I will pick a topic of sorts. Basically a chance for you to get to know me a little bit better. Each day I will pick something about me to write about. I hope you enjoy this little challenge, I think I will.
A is for Agate
When I was young we had a friend whose dog had puppies. They were a mix of a Pekingese and a Poodle, a Peekapoo. We brought one home and waited to see how he interacted with the cats we already had. But first we had to name him.
My dad came up with the name of Agate. I only knew of it as a type of stone. There is also the definition from the word origins that meant a diminutive person… that is what Dad said would fit this little dog perfectly.
He was a good little watch dog and ate more cat food than dog food. He was very protective and would growl at a couple of my friends when they came over, never bite only threatened.
Sadly my Mom had him taken to the animal shelter when we got new carpet. She did it while I was in school and I never got a chance to say goodbye. I still miss my little Agate.

That is so sad that your mother would do that. Sad and kind of heartless. Poor little Agate.
I will never forget how devastated it made me feel.
Terrible message to send to a child, that a carpet was more important than a loved pet 😦
I was mad at her for so long over this.
I can see why 😦 Has she ever apologized?
She did…I forgave her but never forgot.
