Having Puppies

We got a new puppy about a week ago. She is adorable. I went to Pet Smart to look at kittens and puppies. There were 2 rescues there with dogs and cats all over. So I'm walking around and these people were carrying this black puppy who looks just like what I want. I walk up and start talking to them and they say they cannot adopt her. I picked her up and she snuggled up into my neck. What are you going to do? So I'm thinking wow she is so adorable, ron will kill me. But I decided that we had wanted another puppy and she was exactly what we wanted. Now I like to adopt from rescues or the humane society because all animals have all their shots, they are spayed or neutered, and have the microchip. So I filled out the paperwork and paid and they gave me puppy food, flea medicine and heartgard for the puppy. I drive home and when I get home I carry her in and put her in Ron's lap. He looks at me and says "what is this". I said this is Sadie. Of course then she gives him puppy kisses (she licked his neck) and he is in love instantly. It turns out that she loves Ron and follows him around all over. He gives her little chewies and she has him wrapped around her little paw. The downside to having a puppy is getting up every 2 hours at night to take her outside. I am very tired. The other part is going out every hour during the day and making sure she doesn't chew the house down. All in all she is doing really good and actually listens some for a small puppy. She has found a home and we will love her just like all our animals. I know many people put their dogs outside but I never have. I keep them in with me. I feel if your animal has to stay on a chain all the time then you should not have one. Pets need attention and puppies take alot of attention and time. We love ours and I know that I have saved 2 from either bad homes or euthenasia so I feel good.
If you want a pet, remember the time and money to care for them and please adopt from a rescue or from the humane society. This saves pets and helps the community as well.
