As a person going through depression , it is really important to have a companion to share my feelings and someone who I can have a happy time with. I had been considering getting a dog for a long time but always thought I wouldn’t be able to stand up to the responsibility that comes with having to raise a pup. 

Recently, I decided I was going to take this challenge on and find a companion to share my experiences with. I got a 35 day old male pug to start with.I named him Kal. After Kal-El, Superman’s real name. Superman has been a Symbol of Hope for the whole world and hopefully little Kal here will be my Symbol of Hope. He has been really cute and lazy so far but really worried about his nutrition and raising. The anxious feelings creep in at these moments and I can’t help but stop them no matter what I do. 

I’ll try my best to raise him as my closest friend but I can’t help but stop worrying about the future and how I still don’t feel happy even though he is now here. Hopefully things will get better with time. I hope for the best.
