So you get poop and pee and aggravation with a new puppy, that is obvious.
What is less visible is the enormous, unending supply of love that comes with it.
We have had dogs for all but 2 years of our 22 year partnership/marriage. These last 5 months without a dog in the house I hadn’t realized what I’d been missing until Lucie came into our lives.
She is an infinite source of unconditional love every minute of her existence. If we have her for her life expectancy of 12-17 years, let’s say 12 years- that is 4380 days of love from morning until night.
I want to be aware/awake enough to treasure every minute of it.
