I grew up in a family of dog-people.
We had a german shepherd when I was born and he lived another 10 years.
After he passed away, we had a beagle, dachshund, and another german shepherd in that order. Now that I’m in my mid 20s living alone in the York neighborhood of Toronto, I have a dog of my own. He’s a pug and I adopted him when a close friend living in Quebec had a litter of puppies and couldn’t get rid of them all. Although I wasn’t necessarily looking for a pet, let alone a dog, he was such a cute puppy that I couldn’t say no! I ended up naming him Klaus after my friend Michael’s pug from back in college who had that name. Despite any concerns I might have once harbored regarding my ability to care for Klaus, I’m extremely happy that I adopted him because he gives me a sense of companionship that I didn’t have living 100% alone in my Toronto apartment. It’s also nice having a companion who doesn’t judge me for my cannabis use! Recreational cannabis is legal countrywide in Canada and I love visiting various dispensaries in Toronto. I have a dry-herb weed vaporizer that I like to throw in my pocket when I take my dog on walks in Cedarville Park. I take Arlington Ave until I get to the opening of the Park. Once I’m safely in the park and away from traffic, I get my cannabis vaporizer out of my pocket and start taking puffs of vapor. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy Toronto’s many parks than with a dry-herb weed vaporizer in your pocket and a cute dog at the end of a leash. Next week Klaus can accompany me to Sunnybrook Park in my car.
