My partner has been whining to me about my puppy since I bought him home. It was a very spur of the moment purchase, one that I probably should have though about a lot more. I hadn’t even discussed the idea of a dog with my partner, but I really didn’t think she would’ve cared so much. I saw my puppy when my friend and I were hanging around the shopping centre the other night.I just couldn’t walk away, and I had just gotten my pay. His round gorgeous puppy eyes staring helplessly at me through the glass. He wanted me to take him home and love him forever, so that’s exactly what I did. At the beginning, my girlfriend was incredibly excited by the sudden appearance of a puppy. Unfortunately the novelty wore off pretty quick. The carpet was suffering quite a few accidents but nothing too major. I had figured it would take some time to train the dog, but nothing prepares you for how often they need to go outside. It was winter and leaving the puppy out in the cold was not an option. He was definitely going to be an inside dog so training would have to start soon. The alternative was giving up and getting regular stain removal, Melbourne better have some high quality cleaners or we’re going to have to move house.
I had to go away for work for a few nights in the city and my partner didn’t want to be left alone to puppy sit. I had quite a few concerning voicemails at the end of the day from my girlfriend about the dog. When I got home I was hit with the reality of owning a small dog. The house absolutely smelled like a dog kennel. My girlfriend in the kitchen on the phone, the puppy was in her crate. I held up a business card for carpet cleaning in Melbourne. It would have been nice to come home to a clean house, at least my girlfriend was onto the task.
