The last time we misplaced the puppy we found her in the basement. She had just discovered the cats litter boxes and was about to make her move.

If I'm home alone and want to take a nap (on the weekends) I will put his leash on him, loop it around my wrist and we take a nap together, sort of


DH just called and said that he heard Jackson rummaging around in the bathroom, when he went to check on him he said there was paper everywhere!

My vet and I were just discussing this. She (who has several kids) and I have come to the conclusion that it's much worse. You don't stand in the rain in the middle of the night for children to potty. You don't have to worry about your infant or toddler chewing lamp cords. You don't have worry about your toddler digging his way out of your yard or jumping the fence and getting hit by a car (yes, toddlers can sneak out of an open door or gate, but so can a pup). Toddlers don't bite you as a greeting (well, not most of them). They don't have the ability to completely destroy the sofa in a single afternoon, and have no idea that what they did was anything other than just good fun with lots of stuffing! Toddlers don't need hours of exercise even when it's raining/snowing/hailing/105 degrees out. Toddlers generally don't eat poop.



Then again, my dogs won't expect a car when they turn 16. They don't talk back (too much). I don't have to send them to college (although classes and private lessons aren't cheap). They're always thrilled to see me, and I don't have to drop them off a block away from their day care so their friends don't see me. Although they sometimes step on the remote control while I'm watching a show, they never mock about the show I'm watching. My dogs will usually sing along with me in the car. And they always think what I have to say is *fascinating!*

That's why I have dogs (and not kids!)
But puppyhood? Whew! That's why God made puppies so darn cute, or we'd never ever tolerate all the other stuff!

Grimm is a Scorpio. Incredibly loyal, treats friends as family, values emotional intimacy, loves a sense of mastery, totally devoted-- but temper from ****. As a puppy, he threw tantrums like a 2-year old!! Stick he wanted to pick up turns out to be an unmovable tree root? BWWWAAARRGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!! First-time discovery of a frozen puddle, expecting to be able to dig through it the way he can dig through snow-- puddle of ice refuses to move with his digging efforts? BWAAAARRGGHHH!!!!!!!

Exactly and precisely like having a toddler! LOL!
Called him "Tantrum Boy."

My GSD is an adolescent right now. Smoking pot? Hmmm... a nice mellow chilled out dude? Is that an option?

When I got Chatham as a puppy, I was dating someone else. I thought it was a great indicator of how it would be to have kids (which he really wanted). Guess who was getting up at 3 am to let the puppy out? Not him.
