Alvin had had enough of life on the farm.
He wanted to explore the world and try out new things.
So, he told his folks he was leaving. Though his parents were worried about this move, they supported his decision and even gave him some money to use before landing a job. Little did they know a friend had already found him a bartending gig in the municipality. Alvin had to drive to Libertyville with his best friend, Bud. Bud was a German Shepherd dog he’d raised since he was a puppy. His friend had found him a pet-friendly studio apartment in his building where Alvin could settle in. Alvin was unsure about moving in winter, but he knew if he waited longer, he’d be tempted to change his mind. There was snow in Libertyville, but his apartment had an excellent heating system. Alvin got a chance to learn about the town and began his job three days after the move. His friend also worked in the same bar and helped him out alot. Alvin knew Bud was getting restless cooped up in the house. So he asked his friend if there was a dog park where they’d go. The Independence Grove Dog Park was not the big and open wide spaces they were used to in the countryside. But it was enough area for Bud to get some exercise and meet some new dog buddies. That became their favorite place to go on the days Alvin did not have work. Alvin began loving the town and even met an extraordinary girl who later became his wife. After a few months of dating, they moved in together, got married, and had their first child, a baby girl. Never once did Alvin regret his decision to move to Libertyville.
