Yes, it is my first dog, except for when I was a kid, but those were family dogs. I have always only had cats, because I am out at work all day, but now that I am in a situation where I can have him at work, I am ready. Have been reading a lot, and it seems a bit overwhelming at times, but I'm sure we'll figure it out as we go. No offense to my cat... she is not much fun. The cat I used to have was snuggle and playful into old age, but my current kitty is pretty aloof and skittish. I am committed to caring for her, but watching people playing with their dogs has made me realize what I am missing! I work with a lot of elderly and disabled people, and I'm sure Benjamin will cheer them up immensely.
Thanks, Linda. I am planning to take a week's vacation the week after I get him, but I am a little worried about sleeplessness once I get back to work. I don't bounce back like I used to! My potty training plan is to have him sleep in a crate by my bed, and have him use wee wee pads in the bathroom, so hopefully we can both get right back to sleep. Whatever it takes, though. I am in love with him already!
