What to do? A puppy or not?


Hayden and I have been after Brett to get us a puppy.  I fell in love with this breed when Brett and lived in England.  It is a Wheaten Terrier.  LOL, I even dreamed about them last night.  He finally willing to give in, if Hayden and I take full responsibility.  Now Hayden is six, mind you.  I already struggle having him keep his toys picked up... I'm not all that good myself.  I'll have to brush the baby everyday or every other day.  I also have Yankee to think of (our cat).  However, I always had a dog growing up, and they are such a fond part of my memory.  This dog is supposed to a kid a heart forever and fabulous with kids.  I want that for Hayden.  I just don't know if I am ready to do this all on my own.  Sometimes Hayden is enough, lol.  Awww, what to do?  Any suggestions or advice?  I'll have to keep the dog from chewing up everything - and of course, there is the potty training.....

Well, dogs and little boys just go together but I am with you on there being a whole lot of stuff to think about. I think of muddy paws coming in on the clean floors when it's been raining and what to do with a pet when you have to be away. LOTS of stuff to be concerned with.

That picture alone is enough to make me want one! It is a lot of responsibility, but if you are willing to take it on it is almost a right of passage for a boy to have his dog. Go for it!
