Hi all ! We are thinking of bringing a pet - a pup (probably in April12). As i am a working mom, i am apprehensive about managing it - but cannot say no my child's dream of having a pet. In order to prepare myself i wanted to know what i can expect with this new addition. Practical work and time to be catered. We are not used to having a pet at all, and i am pretty concerned about having one. Can we manage to take proper care and train it properly....etc. I want to take care properly, so i am doing some ground work before we really can go for the pup. Please do give me inputs....It's nice to imagine cuddling a dog, but one has to do lot of work to keep it healthy, and well trained and treat it with kindness and firmness...wish i can do it !
