Part 2: Realize That A Big Dog Means A Big Responsibility
If it’s a big dog you want, remember that the puppy may be cute and small, but it grows to huge proportions really quickly. Try dog sitting someone’s Great Pyrenees while they are on vacation. Clean their enormous goobers and the gigantic droppings from the yard.
If you’re feeling particularly brave, let the dog run through a mud puddle and then attempt bathing it. Lift heavy weights in preparation for walks. Their long, pale hair will color your suit, clog your drains and serve as a reminder of the dog long after they have gone.
