When deciding to get a puppy I thought about things that most people looking to get a puppy think of. Things like whether or not I can afford one, how I am going to potty train it, and is it a good time in my life to get a puppy. However one thing that I came to realize after bringing Lady home for the first month or two is that it helps a ton if you have a clean house and are a neat person. I myself am not the neatest person in the world and when I brought Lady home she made sure to find anything and everything that was left on the ground and try to eat it. When I say eat I don’t mean she would find things to chew up and make a huge mess with everything she chewed. I mean she would find anything she could fit in her mouth and swallow it. The best part is that the next day it would come out the other end looking exactly the way she swallowed it so you could always see what she had found on the ground the day before.
Now I did my best to keep my apartment as clean as possible but no matter how had I would try she always seemed to find something that I had missed. She has found and eaten everything from thumbtacks, to my wallet , and even my lacrosse game shorts. She would always find things and then quietly pick them up and eat them without me noticing. So before you get a puppy make sure you have picked up absolutely everything off of your floor and be prepared for your new puppy to find anything you missed.
