Oh yes, I so remember those months ... and Ky's 18 months now so it wasn't that long ago!!!
I used to threaten to drop her off at the park ... but then remembered that everyone knew her, so she'd just end up back at my front door.
I've threatened to trade her in for a hamster
I've told her that I would GLADLY give her to the next person that said she was beautiful
And I sat on my bed one day (she was about 8 months old) and broke down and cried ... why the heck did I get this dog??? Really, what was I thinking getting a purebred dog? Why couldn't I have been happy with a mutt, like all my other dogs?
And then, the moments pass, and the puppy shows you something funny, and you forget about it (til the next time) ... and then WHAMMO ... they're not doing any of those behaviours any more ... and you know what ... you don't really notice they're not doing them until it's been a couple of weeks!!
Glad you hung in there ... as am I!
