Top Ten Things No One Told You

Received this in the email and thought it's really funny and true. Not sure who the original writer is though.

10. A large-breed puppy is fully capable of eating your brand-new, hideously expensive, as-yet-uninsured digital camera.

9. By the time your puppy is a year old, you’ll be on a first-name basis with all of the vets and staff at the local animal hospital.

8. You don’t have to worry about the sock your puppy ate because it’ll come out all right in the end.

7. A small-breed puppy is perfectly capable of getting up on top of your fridge if he really wants to.

6. It is no longer safe to have an elegant and attractive arrangement of candles on your coffee table.

5. You follow safe food-handling practices and thaw meat in the refrigerator because you no longer have a choice.

4. Even the smallest puppy with gas can clear a room.

3. When your puppy reaches the age of six months, you will no longer be physically capable of wearing him out.

2. While you’re teaching your puppy basic obedience commands such as “Sit” and “Stay”, she is quietly reorganizing and running your entire household.

And the most important thing no one told you about your first puppy:

1. No one sleeps until the puppy sleeps.

LS said she sure can relate me with No. 1, 2, 3, 6 and 7! I'd like to stress that I've never climbed on top of the fridge before. Although this has just given me the idea. Hmm...

Which one(s) can you relate to?

I've always thought it was the cat who got to the top of the fridge, but maybe not.

Moco said...

Edgar gets up on top of the frig and cupboards, but he is a cat. Dawson is always eating the big red haired guys ear plugs. One day he even opened the container and ate four pairs. Foley and I were in awe.

Puppy's are just so cute though - it's all worth it! If the boys found there way to the top of the fridge I would probably have a heart attack!
