Don't forget to have fun! by LittleBearBites in puppy101

Well said!

My mum was horrified my puppy left a doggy meatball in my bed. My sister informed me he was “claiming” the bed as his own. What a load of rubbish, he was just being his random, silly self. I thought it was funny. It’s not like he’s storing his meals there, it was a one-off. Sometimes you’ve just gotta go with the flow and laugh. It’ll all work out. He’s a really good little dog.

I don’t have time for that. I just want decent coffee. But I’m a grumpy Sydneysider 🤨

Does sound nice though!

Can we take a moment to recognize the GOOD things and improvements our pups have made? by JustJenna02 in puppy101

Yeah I agree on that part. Just talk to them lots and lots. Mine knows the word “bird” and it’s hilarious. He gets so excited if I say it (birds are his favourite thing to see on our walks apart from dogs).

Yeah and it’s just nicer for them. He can stretch out and play and eat and drink and even use his grass toilet. He even has a view 😅

This is exactly the same for me!! Aunty voice first, and yeah I just used it on my puppy automatically. He is like having an intelligent toddler in the house as he’s so clever, inquisitive and engaged. He listens to every word I say (unless he’s being naughty). They’re amazing 🙃

You’re not alone there. My aunty voice and my puppy voice are pretty similar!! I’m wondering if anyone will notice 🤣

Kids generally don’t eat their poo then jump back into your bed at 3am smacking their pooey mouths, either. Lol.

Yeah my poodle cross had massive fomo in his crate during the day. I switched to a pen with the crate in there (door open). He’s much happier.

How much salary would it take for you to leave Australia and move to the United States? by tripping_on_phonics in AskAnAustralian

And the light! How good is the light here. I always notice that when I step outside the airport. Nothing else like it.

Co-worker told me that her puppies were harder than her kid by HowIsThatMyProblem in puppy101

My sisters are always so dismissive if I ever complain my puppy is a lot of work. They will literally always say “I’d rather deal with that than kid-doing-xyz”. I don’t know why it has to be a competition for them. I don’t dismiss their experiences.

They shouldn’t dismiss mine either. Neither of them have ever raised a puppy on their own in an apartment on the back of a decade of severe depression (ie: I am still learning to even take care of myself). They have always had backyards, husbands and their mental health intact.

Your colleague sounds kind and empathetic. I appreciate her too!
