I am a work at home mom with two children under the age of three within my home. Needless to say, it is the hardest position I have ever tried to hold in my life. After weeks of racking my brain on what could possibly keep my girls occupied, I came to the decision that they needed a puppy. I already had a few bags of Beneful my brother left here from his visit, so I am one step ahead of the game. The only other thing I would need is Beneful treats and maybe a few toys that the girls could throw around for the dog. I’m thinking I might just have a few old stuffed animals out in the garage for that purpose.
I figured tomorrow we could head to shelter first thing in the morning after I take them to their ballet classes downtown. I am hoping that they can decide together on which puppy they want to bring home and not fight about it. Once we get he or she home than we will have to figure out which girl is on Purinastore’s Beneful duties on certain days. If they are going to have a puppy, they most certainly are going to have to take on a little responsibility. Even though they are young, I think it will be a great idea for them to start learning to care for another life form. This will allow them to learn compassion and how to do small chores around the house. I think if more parents did this than there would be a whole lot less attitude in the world.
The one thing I am excited about with having a new puppy is that I can try out the new Freshpet product I have been reading about and watching on Youtube online. There was an article a month or so back about the owner Richard Thompson and what his goals were with the new product. His goal is seemingly working because I am a health freak and I would very much enjoy having our new family friend eat the same type of food as us. Seeing that I don’t have to prepare the food and I can just purchase it at the store, it sounds like the perfect idea to me.
