So you bring that new puppy home and housebreaking is going as expected. You can get the pup outside to do her business most of the time with only the occasional carpet christening.
But now it’s been nearly a week of successful toilet training and the pup has just walked over to you, made laser direct eye contact and squatted. Right there! In front of you!
What do you do?
You grab the classified ad section of your own local version of the Dayton Daily and roll it up tightly, right?
Then you smack yourself soundly on the head for not paying attention to the puppy.
It’s your own dumb fault.
When I say “you”, I really mean me, of course. Well, all of us collectively. Anyone who has raised a puppy or adopted an adult dog from a shelter.
I was reminded about this Paying Attention thing this week, when the Husband came downstairs and handed me this little nightmare.
