Puppy Love? NOT TODAY

Irrefutable truth that getting a puppy is like having another child:

1) They need constant attention
2) They interrupt a perfectly good nights' sleep
3) They run from you like a petulant child when they think they're going to get in trouble
4) You love them in spite of this
5) They must be "baby-gated" (or in this case, slab-of-wood-jammed-in-door-opening) Don't be fooled by the picture - he absolutely HATES this...

6) Their crying and whining can make you want to hit the bottle - hard
7) The teething is intolerable
8) The naps are never long enough


Funny how the love affair seems to be dwindling huh? Again, it's a good thing he's cute. And now for something completely different...

I just got exciting news that Juergen's college buddy will be coming all the way from California to attend his surprise birthday party! This guy is amazing and I'm thrilled he is taking the time and effort to come. And yes... Tim and Jamie, you are both invited - call for details, I ran out of invites :)

Puppies don't go to college. Kids don't get mange. Other than that, you're right on.

I think you could also say that getting a puppy is like having a husband ( or wife )...

I'm using your words here :

[1] they need constant attention
[2] They interrupt a perfectly good nights' sleep
[3] They run from you like a petulant child when they think they're going to get in trouble
4) You love them in spite of this
...
6) Their crying and whining can make you want to hit the bottle - hard
7) The farting is intolerable ( I edited this one )
8) The naps are never long enough... WHAT naps??

and just so you know, I am not bitter!!
