why do I feel like I want a puppy?

I had this strange urge this morning to get a pet! A dog of all things! I hate dogs. It would have to be a small one, if we did. And I’m not at all impulsive, so I would have to think on it for a long time still.

But what’s wrong with me? I hardly have any time as it is, with a teething almost 11 month-old. And now I want a dog?!? Something else to take care of and clean up after and chase around yelling “No!” 🙂

Or is this the precursor to wanting another baby?????

  • I think I’d take 10 more babies over having to train a puppy.

    It’s a psychological response to your boy growing up. He’s hardly a “baby” anymore. Wow! Hard to believe he’s almost a year old already!

  • In my experience, there’s not much difference between a baby and a puppy. They both poop at inappropriate times and places, make a lot of noise, and are really, really cute.

  • Laura,
    As the ultimate authority on this topic, I urge you to get pregnant again as soon as possible. The dog urge is just a cover-up for your biological desire for another baby. And trust me, dogs suck.
