I overheard a conversation between two mums at school yesterday. Both were carrying their new pups wrapped in blankets, they were in confessional tone.
"Twenty per cent of the time I wish he wasn't here," said one.
The other was agreeing. "My house looked like an Andrex commercial last night."
Both had caved in to pester power but they were the ones at home all day with the dogs while their kids were at school.
Both dogs were mouthing. The new Rhodesian Ridgeback owner passed on a tip to put your hand over the dog's nose to stop them breathing... eek! I'm going to give them both a copy of our Perfect Pup book today - with Post It notes on the pages that show you how to stop mouthing.
Oh dear. Will these pups last till New Year in these homes?
