“You might as well just have a kid,” dad-z said when we told him we were thinking about getting a puppy.
Well since we don’t have a kid yet, I can’t say from personal experience if he is right–but some of my friends with kidlets have concurred.
A couple of weeks ago the breeder we got eddie from emailed us to let us know that we have first dibs on a little critter from his new litter. Tempting!
I believe I have forgotten what it was like those first few months waking up every 3-4 hours at night to take out the pup with the pea-sized bladder. The “potty” training, chewing and obedience training woes have all been washed away by an incredibly sweet & for-the-most-part pleasantly behaved tween pooch. (eddie turns 2 tomorrow!)
We would LOVE to get a play companion for the eddster. Not that I think we could handle two tooters, but double “ french” kisses and “frenzies” (where they zoom around the house doing some impressive hardcore parkour—très funny) would be welcome.
In short we are crazy about our pooch-meister. And we often talk about how he is a perfect match for us; how he enriches our lives on a daily basis. We know that if God can bring us the perfect dog all the way from Newfoundland sight unseen, He can certainly do the same with a baby from the DRC.
Adding a puppy to the adoption mix probably isn’t an ideal idea right now. Never mind the $2000 those beauts cost. So we will have to stand out for this round. Needless to say…
We are forever & positively pooched!
