New puppy

Well, drove to the local pound—no problem me adopting a puppy but there are no puppies. Guess have to check the website 4.30pm daily.

Checked just now—no dogs either. Do people want a pet for company in COVID19 lockdown?

Apparently there has been huge demand for pets since covid started

Yeah. I do not want a 6yo dog. No real history and I cannot be fucked right now trying to cope with a misbehaving dog set in its wrong ways.

I will get a puppy and bring it up right so no nasty traits (even Demi, just 4 mo old when I got her, had been abused, remember?)

Other people like to home an older dog. Not me.

Yeah. Cats are not a pack animal, happy to have two humans feeding and petting it etc which a dog can’t do.
I don;t agree with that. Our dog was fed and obeyed every member of my family, even little kids.

Just got to know where they sit in the pack.

I would get my toddler daughter to take his food away when he was eating it,(under strict supervision and with him on a leash at first) to show him she was above him in the pack. Worked a trreat.

But we all fed him and he obeyed all of us. He even obeyed close friends he was familiar with and trusted.
