Topic: The challenges of owning a puppy
Unlike fish, who only wish to be fed and left alone,
puppies require you to spend a lot of time caring for them. They need
to be fed, walked, entertained and, in general, kept company. If they
get hungry, bored, or lonely, they will bark or howl all day and upset
your neighbours. Not only will you spend time caring for them, but
you will spend even more time cleaning up after the puppy, arguing
with family members over who will walk it and apologizing to the neighbours
after it sneaks into their yard and digs up their garden. You had better
have a lot of free time, because the puppy will use all of it.
like new babies, sleep a lot, but not always during the night. When
a puppy wakes up at one, three and five o'clock in the morning, it
wants the same attention from you that it would get during the day.
It doesn't understand that the people in the house need sleep, nor
does it care. Hiding your head under your pillow doesn't make it go
back to sleep; it just gets louder until it wakes up your neighbours.
Some people think this is just a phase that the puppy will outgrow,
but not all dogs do. My dog, for example, still likes to go outside
and look at the stars at two o'clock in the morning. She is thirteen
years old. Get used to those bags
under your eyes because you are going to have them for a while.
