Puppy Love

Just about everytime my daughter can get her hands on our puppy, she does.

She loves the puppy.  She hugs and kisses the puppy.  She loves playing with the puppy.  But it usually involves the puppy not being allowed to walk on the ground.

Our conversations about the puppy often go like this:

Mom: “Why don’t you let the puppy walk next to you?”

Daughter:  “The puppy is small.  She can’t walk that far”.

Mom: “But the puppy needs to spend time on the ground learning to walk with you.  That way she can grow up healthy and strong like you.” 

Daughter: “Ok, I can do that.  There, now she can get big and strong.”

Mom: “Good job, I think that is the best thing for her right now.  She needs to spend some time playing next to you and learning how to follow you.”

Daughter: “Yes, but I am ready to go play, and she can’t walk that far.  So I will have to carry her.  I love her.  I don’t want her to get lost.”

Daughter:  “See mom, she is getting bigger.  Just like me”.

Now how can I argue with that logic?  At three years old, she has everything figured out.

Does your child have a pet they play with?  Leave us a comment and tell us about it.  Thank you.
