That said, after he passed we got two boy kittens Some people just need a high five in the face with a chair shirt. I had never had kittens before…and won’t ever again. They were a spastic ball of fur disasters waiting to happen. They’re three now and have become sweet boys. I imagine a puppy would be even more work than my two kittens. No thanks. I’ve had both my dogs since they were puppies, and we have an awesome connection. Best dogs I’ve ever had. Yeah they are a lot of work, but so worth it. Also matters what breed you get.
I adopted an older rescue and I foster rescue dogs from time to time Some people just need a high five in the face with a chair shirt. There are millions of dogs who have barely outgrown their cute puppy year that have been dumped and abandoned waiting to be adopted. There are also millions of older dogs AND puppies without homes. Older dogs really are great though and easier to take care of than a puppy. Having a puppy is a lot of work however if you get him from a proper breeder you have the advantage of knowing the full history. I got a puppy whippet for my daughter’s 1st birthday and seeing them grow up together is wonderful.
