Are you ready for a puppy?


Recommended Posts

No, your puppy is not defective and no, what you are going through is not unusual. I enjoyed this article, Are you ready for a puppy?, in our local doggy newspaper - maybe you will too.

Puppies are awful. Their teeth, when not embedded in your person, are dismantling your property. Meanwhile, the other end dribbles unspeakable fluids in unforgivable locations. Nature equips puppies with overwhelming cuteness to keep us from killing them.

Of course, I'm a bit prejudiced - I notice they quoted my neighborhood vet (my family's vet for 30 years).

In 39 years of veterinary practice, Orchard has watched a lot of puppies grow up. Every client who brings him a new puppy gets a half-hour lecture. He covers housetraining, obedience, and the usual behavioral problems, but the heart of his talk is the puppy

Maybe I'll get 3 more and name them Marley, Scrooge & Cratchet. :lol:

An outstanding article, Brad, though I must confess this paragraph has me more than concerned:

"Your time commitment is especially intensive and important during the pup
