So this is a half dog related thread, but I need to vent.

I really love my (human) guy. He's been coming up every weekend to visit because Roshi is too young to travel 3 hours to see him. However, he can just so piss me off!

Here I am raising our little Roshi 5 days a week by myself, I do hope that when he's around, I'll get some help - at least by watching Roshi, while I get some housework done.

I've told him many times... after meal, Roshi needs to pee and possibly poo. I saw Roshi sniffing around so I told the bf to take him out to poo b/c I was cooking for US. Of course, his 'hawk eye' is more on the Vancouver vs Boston hockey game, and asked "Why?" [email protected] it! Do you need to ask. But yes, he took him out to poo ONLY. Roshi ended up peeing in his diaper shortly after. OMG.

Since my yard is just dirt only and mother nature has been mean to me with just dumping rain every other day, my poor Roshi's paws are always caked with mud. Today's wrong forecast of clear skies screwed me over, and Roshi was caked with mud again. I had to call from outside the door for the bf to get a tub of water. No answer for a while. Yep, now his "hawk eye" was glued to Sex and the City. I have no clue why. When he finally answered I'm like, Roshi is caked with mud. All he could say was "Do you need me to get you some water?" Well, duh. Yeah! It was like this last weekend!

OMG! I'm already not asking him to cook and clean (I seriously need to do laundry!) and he can't even look after a puppy for a bit. Are all your lovely male partners like mine?

You are so cute! Your story reminds me of what it was like with my first child! I think you are getting good experience of what life is like having children And taking care of Boy friend Puppy, school ect. Not easy
I bought a indoor out door cheep carpet a home depot that would be great for you to put down for your puppy so his feet won't get muddy! I think I remember you having a deck? we use a green one for on the deck when its raining and it sure can rain here in Oregon. I'm sorry your life is so hectic right now I hope things get better. You could take the TV away

You might want to leave a little bucket of water near the door so you can dip the paws in water, then absorb the paws with a towel to get the mud off.

BF is not emotionally involved with your pup...he just does not get it. He will soon find out if you are not happy, he will not be happy.

Taking care of a pup is very similar to taking care of a baby, small toddler.

You are learning to look for those poos and pees, you are doing great! Hang in there! These little pups do grow up faster than babies and toddlers!

awwwww... yes, men are idiots. LOL
Seriously, the TV would be gone if that was my man!
why can't Roshi travel the 3 hrs to go to your bf's house? Does he get car sick?
Is this HIS dog also? Did you decided to get him together? pay together? Maybe he just isn't emotionally involved and doesn't care??
And yes, it IS a lot like raising a toddler in the begining, but hang in there, it DOES get SO much easier, quickly, if you do it all right in the begining!!!

That is cute! (I'm sure it's not to you!) But seriously, he reminds me of most of the "Baby Daddys" on 16 and Pregnant. (I know....most grownups don't watch this show, as it's more targeted towards teenagers...but my son's girlfriend got me started, now I'm hooked.) Good luck with him! If you can start getting him trained to step up early, it will definately make your life easier in the future!

I'm reluctant to drive 3 hrs with Roshi right now. 1. Roshi can't hold his pee for 3 hours (unless he's napping). 2. I don't want to stop in the middle of the highway to let him pee in the grass when he's not fully vaccinated yet.

Yes, Roshi is OUR dog. We decided (rephrase: I decided, he agreed) and paid together for him. I knew I would be the one doing the raising, while he comes for the weekly visit to help me watch him while I get other stuff I missed during the weekday done (i.e. laundry - on my last pair of underwear!)

BUT OMG. Here's a CLASSIC!
So it's a Saturday, but I still stick to schedule - wake up at 6 am and do the whole Roshi routine. After that's done, it's back to bed I go, and weekend crate napping for Roshi (I'm sure he prefers his weekday daycare more!) Anyhow, I think it's only fair that the bf wakes up for the every 1.5 hr potty times. Reluctant, but he did it. (Good for him).
11 am. We all got up. I went downstairs to let Roshi to go potty. I found my front door WIDE OPEN!!! BF was in such a rush to go back to sleep after Roshi went potty, he forgot to close my door.

Sigh.

Men just think differently. I always chalked it up to my husband working long hours and having to deal with so many people that he turns himself "off" when he gets home. You just need to communicate to him (when Roshi doesn't need attention) how important the potty training and that you would like his help. Don't assume he knows what you are thinking or that you have to do laundry etc...
