Bringing Home a New Dog?
Are you thinking of bringing home a new dog? Then a ton of questions must be going through your mind right now. Getting a new dog or puppy home without thinking this through can cause a lot of trouble and heartache. On the other hand, if you think through this carefully and make the right decision, you will have an amazing new family member, who will give you years of company, affection and love."Bringing Home Your New Dog" takes you through the various questions that you will need to answer before you decide on which dog to get home, as well as various steps you need to take before bringing home a new dog.
So the doorbell rings. And your dog, who is generally a well-behaved one, goes completely berserk. Now you find yourself trying to grab his collar to get him under control, so that you can actually open the door. And where in the world is the leash?...
If the above scenario sounds all too familiar, you are certainly not alone. For me, that scene is typically followed up by one of two outcomes. Either I spend ages finding the leash, all the while apologizing to the visitor, or I resort to opening the door and conversing with my visitor in the awkward "I'm hanging on to my dog's collar" position. Neither option leaves me feeling particularly good!
