I'm learning how to clearly communicate what I want to him, but man, some days it feels like it will never come together. I know it will eventually come together, but sometimes it feels like I'm walking around in the dark. My neighbors always wonder why I spend so much time with my dog, lol.|

I was going to chime-in and just say "The End", but after reading a few of these I realized everyone feels pretty-much the same.
I'd gladly go thru the poopy-stage, whining all nite as a pup, stepping in barf while barefoot in the middle of the night, vet-bills, the shredded new leather couch, and so so many more things over and over ... if "The End" didn't exist.

I think loosing a dog is the hardest with out a doubt.
But aside from that: I think the training and hardheadedness. Bath time, cleaning all the poop out of my backyard. Making sure their clean when they come in. It's a lot of time and energy, not to mention money to be a good dog owner. There's a lot of good memories along the way and its a lot of work to get your dog where you want them.
To many owners just like the idea of having a dog and quickly realize they require a lot of attention.

I did not read all the pages in this thread, so I'm probably just repeating, but having lost my dog this week (8 1/2 years) - having to make the call to the vet and later the same day loose the dog was definitely the hardest part.

|RachelK1||Losing them. When they pass away it is the hardest thing to go through. Dogs are so loyal and give unconditional love. Everything else with having a dog is easy in comparison.|
