I’ve heard people say that having a puppy is a lot like training to have a baby. After having a puppy for a month and a half, I can see more and more similarities between the two.
When my daughter was little, I used to sit her in her high chair with some cereal or a toy to eat or play with while I prepared dinner.
Now, I give the dog a Kong filled with peanut butter to keep him occupied while I prepare dinner or while we eat.
It’s all about stimulating the mind and keeping them busy so I can use both hands to do something and still know exactly where they are and what they are into at all times!
The cat, on the other hand, can always be found curled up sleeping somewhere. Cats are much lower maintenance, but not quite as playful.
