Let me mention right now how much work an infant is…
I’d forgotten how hard it really was.
How little sleep you get when you have to eat and go potty 25 times in a 24 hour period.
Human baby or canine baby, it’s all the same.
Instead of dirty diapers, we’re standing in the middle of the back yard in the middle of the night saying:
“Go potty, Percy! Go potty, Percy! Go potty, Percy!”
And then, when it happens: “Yay!!! Percy!!! What a good puppy!!! Yay!!!”
(In a high-pitched sing-songy voice and doing a happy dance in our bathrobes.)
Needless to say, there is at least one member of the family who is less than enthusiastic about getting a puppy. He lacks so much enthusiasm that he’s been relegated to a muzzle because we’re afraid he may just take matters into his own
hands jaws and set things back to the good ole status quo.
It’s a good thing babies are cute, is all I can say…
