Big Mistake #7 - Feeding Your Puppy Hotdogs During Puppy Kindergarten.
Our Puppy Kindergarten teacher emailed me before the class started to tell us what to bring with us: a hungry puppy, a plethora of small treats to act as the reward for his "lessons", and two overly eager parents. Check, check, and check.
So we arrive with six hot dogs cut up into raisin-sized pieces, a hungry Murphy, and, well, two overly eager parents. Fast forward a day and a half later, and Murphy drops a deuce in our bathroom this morning. First time he's ever done that! We're astonished, and just chalk it up to a fluke.
Fast forward 8 hours, I arrive home after a long day at work, and there's.... evidence.... of another dropped deuce.
Fast forward... twenty minutes... and wow, that dog can clear a room with the smells coming out of his furry booty.
Nick arrives home from work, and gives me the stink eye. "Honey, what have you done??"
"It was him!" I point at the dog, and "It was her!" the dog points back at me. Nick's not sure who to believe, but in the end, Murphy rips one right in front of Nick and I win.
After some careful thought, we realize it must be from the hotdogs. And thus concludes our first Big Mistake as a married couple.
