Walking My Dog

Describe a routine that you participate in daily.


Every morning before I go to school, I take my dog, Buxton, on a walk around the neighborhood. It is a very mundane task, but because of the struggle I faced to finally own Buxton, the time I spend with him each morning is special to me. I had wanted a puppy ever since I was very young, but my parents always said I had siblings instead of pets. I tried every possible ruse to change their minds -- took care of fish, sat for neighbors' pets, did research on dog training -- but my efforts were all for naught until Fate stepped in. One day, my family was at the pet store when all of our hearts melted at the sight of an adorable black-and-white cocker spaniel: our Buxton. We bought him that very day. Now every morning when I walk him, whether it is rainy and miserable or sunny and warm, I think back to that moment and appreciate the little push of Fate that brought me a puppy.
