So last week I had to make a grown up decision. Nothing super major like a mortgage or getting married, I’ve already done 1 1/2 of these things.
No it was another kind if grown up decision, to admit I was wrong.
So I’d finally managed to persuade my other half to get a puppy, don’t ask me how I’m still not sure!
And on a Friday vending a few weeks ago I went to see a gorgeous litter of Pug puppies, and fell in love with a little wrinkled bundle, paid my deposit and was looking forward to bringing him home.
Then the next day the breeder told me that all the pups were gone apart from 1, well for some reason my brain skipped ahead and said we’ll take him!
Jump ahead a few weeks and it was pup day, we collected them both and brought them home. First few days were manic as I’m sure you can imagine.
As the next 2 weeks passed it didn’t get easier and I had a flashof a future with 2 larger dogs constantly fighting and training issues etc. At that point I knew what I had to do.
I had to admit I was wrong, that I couldn’t handle a situation, that I had made a mistake.
So I did, I told my OH that I was having second thoughts and I didn’t think keeping 2 was the best.
Luckily we had a chance to return one, they were going back to breeders for their second injections. I told her that when I collected on Friday I was only going to ge returning with 1. Luckily she was very understanding.
So friday I collected my one puppy and brought him home.
It’s still hard work but at least we can concentrate on loving and training one with everything we have.
Stay tuned for future puppy and non puppy related news
