As you may know, I am mush for babies… especially of the human or fuzzy varieties (baby fish, baby lizards, etc. don’t hold the same appeal). Puppies are a particular weak spot for me.
A few days before Christmas, the neighbor who walks our archnemisis dogs (two big long haired fluffy white ones) walked by with a new puppy. I wanted to run down the street after him, but thought that might be strange. I think it’s a husky pup and soooo stinking cute!! On New Year’s my aunt and uncle brought their new puppy to the family party, soooo cute! Lassie is a baby collie and just beautiful. They held her like a baby for half the time and let her wander around the rest of the time. Then I stumbled across some pictures of Baby Suzie… I want a puppy!!!!!
On the other hand, here’s a list why I like not having a puppy right now (yes, you are right, this list is for me more than anyone else):
-I can sleep through the night without interruption
-I can sleep in on weekends without worrying about accidents in the crate
-I can wander freely through the house not worrying about a potty training accident lurking in some corner
-I can work a full day and not be worried about accidents waiting for me
-I can leave things out at puppy level and they (usually) won’t get chewed or destroyed (with the exception of an occasional kid toy, which Suze thinks are for her).
-Adult dogs are more peaceful and we can just chill together (sometimes) without all the activity of a puppy
