For all of you who are complaining about dogs - just a thought. *EDIT*
Please stop buying puppies or getting dogs and complaining about how they are soooo much trouble. If you are not prepared for the work that comes with a dog, don't get one. They chew things, they poop in the house sometmes, they bark, they get out and run off, they cost money to feed and require trips to the vet. Animals are a lifetime commitment, not just a plaything when they are cute little puppies. Read up, ask questions, get prepared and expect the unexpected.
Yes, I am a crazy dog person. I am active in rescue and I love all animals. I have three boys and three dogs.
Just for the record, venting is one thing, we all do it. Hell, I was listening to my husband bitching about our 8 month old pup this morning, (he gets in to everything) but it is the women who are saying how much they hate their dogs and the lady who wants to KILL her 9 week old puppy because it is acting like, GASP, a puppy. Complain away, it is just the unrealistic expectations that get to me. I mean, really, a 9 week old puppy is housetrained? Really? Hell, my 8 year old son is still not totally housetrained. Dogs will be dogs, if you aren't educated and prepared for the responsibility, don't get one. Get a fish. Or a cat. Or a plant. Just not an animal who needs lots of love and attention.
