That can't wait for my puppy to *not* be a puppy anymore? On one hand I love being a puppy owner/companion - the training, molding, learning, shaping, and whole experience is very rewarding and great. But on the other - I DON'T enjoy the insolence, immaturity, bounciness (can get incredibly annoying), and lack of composure. I know, I know...lots of folks dogs still have all that and more well into their later years - but I'm just saying. Puppies are...great yet nerve wracking at the same time. Katalin just isn't behaving this month - the August heat, her heat, and her period of pre teen flakiness/insolence is just a f*cking horrible combo. She does things she knows she's going to get in trouble for then tries to guilt trip me when I put her into time outs/give her a correction for it - totally PMSing - it is completely untypical of her. Grrrrr....we shall get thru this.
