The BIG PUPPY JUST ARRIVED Day
This is a photo of my grandson MYLZ! He sent it to me a little while ago....it has a story all it's own.
Tell me if this sounds familiar??
You are eleven years old...it's summer break from school. You just graduated from elementary school to MIDDLE SCHOOL. You really really want a puppy!!! So....Mom and Dad CAVE and let you have this adorable little ball of fur that has just been taken from it's nest. NOW YOU MUST POTTY TRAIN HER.....oh yay.... fun fun fun.
Your sister, age 4 has your cousin over for an overnight stay. She's younger than you also. She has NO IDEA what to do with puppies that are only 8 weeks old but she wants to play with the little fur ball....so she wakes up TORI (fur ball's new name) and takes her outside to play....and, oh yea, perchance to relieve herself but who's really watching. She's let back into the house and bounds up the stairs to YOUR room, all excited to see her MASTER again and suddenly realizes it's time to squat...OOPS!
Now YOUR whole GREAT DAY is ruined because Mom and Dad blame YOU for the whole botched potty training deal...
HOLY COW WHO KNEW THIS WHOLE DOG OWNERSHIP THING COULD BE SO TOUGH....and on the FIRST DAY even!!!!
