Becoming a Dog Owner

25 Things no one told you before getting a Dog (Part 1)

Watch out where you live your shoes

1. You will be picking up poop in the most nerve-wracking places. Your dog’s choice of the perfect place to poop will not always relate to yours!

2. You will not be able to take your eyes off your pup – fearing they will chew or eat something from the floor or elsewhere inappropriate.

4. What a great date… Now, I gotta go feed my dog! – You will always want to get back home to your dog…always!
