Summary

"I want a dog!"

Who hasn't heard that screamed from a child or partner? They want a dog, but you don't want one because you know it will be your responsibility to look after it when they grow bored. Well, this book isn't necessarily for you. This book is for those who want a dog but have no idea what they're really letting themselves in for. 

You see, I wanted a dog. I was one of those annoying people ranting and raving how badly I wanted one. Now I am an adult, I should be allowed to get a dog! It's my house! I got my dog. I got what I wanted. I even chose the dog. Now, as I sit here typing out this blurb, I weep. Why did I do this to myself? Why have I just committed to this little bastard for God knows how many years? 

If you want a dog of your own, listen to this audiobook. Perhaps see things you didn't necessarily think of (on top of having to clean up its shit from when you go on walks or when it runs in your garden). Then, when you have listened to the audiobook, make your decision again. Decide if it really is for you. 

Don't want a dog? Well this is about a pug called Chewie.... Hear about Chewie's first year and just laugh at my misadventures and misery....

Truth!

I have 3 asshole pugs and everything stated in this is accurate. I laughed, I giggled, I sympathized.

Thank you for adding the ending that pets can be hard, it’s not all snuggles and wags. More people need to take the time to research the little beings that they are bringing into their homes.

Bug-Eyed Accuracy

And full-bellied snorts of asthmatic chuckles. As a pug mama of two, I can concur the facts presented in this case study are completely accurate and nothing but truthful depictions of pug ownership. Two twisty, noodle tails up!
