A new addition

Yesterday my husband told me that his parents will be getting a puppy, a little Border Collie.  I think this is a good thing but it begs some questions.

Do they realise that looking after a puppy is harder work than looking after a newborn baby?

Do they realise puppies have “accidents” on nice cream carpet or wherever the hell they want to?

Do they realise that puppies sometimes chew furniture, skirting board, cushions, shoes, slippers, bedding etc?

Do they have a plan for where the puppy goes when they go away for the weekend?

Do they know that a house will smell of dog if it contains a dog?

But these are details.  It is a good thing.
