and bad.~ John Mayer
Some things in life might seem like a good Idea, but until you go through with it you will not understand the true difficulty of it. At the end of the summer my family decided to dive in the world of puppyhood and get an eight week old english golden retriever. As most of you know, puppy’s can be some of the cutest animals that you have ever seen. They are soft, then cuddle, and they play. Nobody can resist her face when we are walking around and they have to stop and play. A couple of weeks ago, when the new puppy was starting to get used to her new life and to world in general. We started to let her explore more of the house and not be watched 24/7. This all was happening during the day so I was at school and it was just Zoey (my dog) and my mom. After I left for school during the day my mom went upstairs to do laundry, but the dog was still down stairs. When I came back I walked into the living room and I saw Zoey. She was sitting on the rug in the middle of the room with my new pair of sneakers in her mouth and being ripped in half. These shoes I had just gotten that day and I had not even gotten to ware them yet. Out of an entire closest full of shoes to pick from, there she was chewing on my brand new shoes. At first I was angry at her but when I saw her cute, harmless face looking at me wondering if she did something wrong I thought about it and I calmed down. She did not know yet that chewing shoes was not something that she should do and that part of being a puppy was to learn what she should do and what she should not do. That is not the only thing she does, she chews peoples hands, she steals food, and she pees on the rug. You could say that getting a puppy is not a good idea for the reasons listed but she will grow out of most of these things and the goods out way all of the bad parts about getting a dog. Not all things in life will be all good but don’t be discouraged because if you really look at the good and the bad parts you might find that the bad parts will go away or that the good is more than the bad. Getting a dog is one of the best decisions that we made in a long time and I do not retreat the decision.
