Friday Funny- How Puppies Are Like Babies

Since Lola has come to be with us, I'm really seeing how puppies are like new babies. If you are considering getting a puppy or having a baby, here are some things you might want to know:

10.) When they are ready to play, you won't be. And vice versa.
9.) You can play and look and shop for the most PERFECT thing for them, spend an inordinate amount of money on the item, and they will still want to play with the cardboard box. And yes, they will both want to chew it.
8.) Everything goes in the mouth.
7.) There is a lot of poop to deal with. On many different levels.
6.) Just when you think you've got it down, a growth spurt comes along and ruins the entire routine.
5.) Accidents will happen. And it will never be at a convenient moment.
4.) Their cuteness will keep you from inflicting punishment.
3.) You will definitely ask yourself," What the HECK was I thinking? How did I get myself into this???!?!?"
2.) They are always hungry. Always thirsty. Always needing attention. Especially when you would prefer to be sleeping.
1.) The purity of the love and affection they give will melt away the aggravation found in items 2-10. When you see the happiness, know the match is right, feel the happiness, take part in the happiness, you'll know you made the right decision.

Yours, repeating #1 to myself daily, as well as #4,

  1. Oh my goodness. Look at that sweet puppy belly!!! (I need to print this list and hang it on the fridge so we can properly prepare for our new addition later this month (canine, not human).)
