I always knew that my roommate/friend's girl friend is crazy, and the definition of girly girl, in fact when i heard she was getting a puppy, i predicted it would be a white toy poodle named princess,
I was wrong about one thing, she got a peachy/cream one, and her boyfriend voted for lilly instead of princess which was her pick first.
Well, she just got it a few days ago, and it was the first night i have been around her since she got it. I learned a few things that adds to my idea that she is a little loony.
She is never ever going to let her puppy outside. It is to pee and poo on a puppy piddle pad, and only walk around the house and NEVER EVER EVER in it's life touch grass, meet another dog again, or ever have a treat. She is limiting her food- which is ok, but i was teaching it to sit last night using ONE piece of her food as a reward and she told me i can't do that because she doesn't want her puppy to be fat.
I can't believe anyone wouldn't let their puppy out on grass, or take them on walks. She said that is why i got a toy poodle for the house, she won't go on walks i don't ever want her feet getting dirty on the cement.
She is also never going to put a collar on her and teach her to walk on a lead.
I'm in awe. I told her last night, her puppy is a DOG it needs to go on walks, play in grass, and learn to walk well. Why wouldn't you want to take her out with you?? she just said, i will carry her if she goes out.
My other friend just got a puppy too, a schuwzer (sp?) but since he is in classes all day no one is home to take him out, and he doesn't have a crate for crate training. so he is cleaning up after him all the time because he doesn't have the whole poddy training thing down yet. He has not taught him anything yet (also just got him) and has no idea where to start i think. So i am going to take him this weekend i think and try to train him to sit, lay down, and shake and work on poddy training also i am going to talk him into getting a crate for him and work on crate training
