The puppy is new and so adorable. You cuddle with it every day and love to chase it around the yard or play tug of war with the stuffed animal that, in a year will probably be missing most of its limbs. However, all is not fun and games in the house with the new puppy. Now comes the hard part, house training the dog.
As the new puppy does one of two things to relieve him/herself in the middle of your new white carpet you find yourself wondering why it is so difficult for the dog to understand that you do not go in the house. You think to yourself why would anyone, animals included, go to the bathroom where they live? Would they not want it as far away as possible? You think your puppy must just be thickheaded, anyone with a dog has looked at their animal at this stage and said you stupid dog . However, then you remember that for a couple of years after you were born you not only went to the bathroom where you live but actually in your pants and you feel slightly bad for being so frustrated with your dogís seeming lack of intelligence.
