Pet Parent Chronicles: Why Are You Proud of Your Pets Today?
I came into work this morning feeling like the most proud dog mom in the entire world. When I explained to my coworker the reasoning, I asked: is this similar to what the feeling is like when your child is growing and they hit the growth percentiles? He laughed.
I'm not gonna lie to you. I was very nervous to get a dog. I've been a cat mom for years, the thought of disrupting her peace scared me. It took some time, but I finally got to a place where I was okay with the thought of getting a new member of our family.
I knew it was going to be a lot of work but the thought of the unknown was what scared me the most. Would it listen to me? Would I be a good dog mom?
I think I am.
Kuzko just turned four months old, and he's already learned more than so many dogs I know. He can sit, lay down, and sometimes when he feels like it, he gives us his paw.
We have been trying to teach him two very important commands: sit and stay. He does them when either myself or Konrad are with him, but if there's any kind of distraction at all (and I mean ANYTHING) he won't listen.
Because of that, we decided to enroll him in dog training classes - and here's why I'm a proud dog mom.
He may only be four months old, but he already knows enough that we don't need to put him through puppy classes! He can already go to beginner classes. He's so smart he's able to skip a grade! Isn't that something every parent strives for?
This moment made me sit back and reflect on my time with Kuzko so far. He is such a smart, good boy, and I am very lucky knowing that I have a dog that isn't a terror.
