Having a puppy, and a dog, is very rewarding and the love and many pug hugs I receive from them is very special, but it’s also a lot of hard work….A LOT! So if you’re thinking about getting a puppy here’s a small insight into my first year with Hugo and Holly…
I’ve been woken up before 6am every single day,
I’ve walked for 182.5 hours,
I’ve prepared over 1460 meals,
I’ve sanded & repainted chewed skirting boards and scratched doors,
I’ve cleaned the carpets 4 times,
I’ve had the heads chewed off a garden full of flowers
I’ve spent over £500 on dog and puppy food,
I’ve spent £260 on puppy training classes
I’ve spent £200 on toys and bedding
I’ve spent £500 on inoculations and vets bills
I’ve picked up over 1500 dog poos!
So you think you can handle all that? And more! And you’re still thinking about getting a puppy! Please think seriously before you decide, they are 100% worth it but they are also reeeeally hard work!
