I have to agree with this comment. And wanted to add that dogs are sometimes compared to kids. Also not very good as an example, as kids tend to grow up and be more dependent, as well as grow to understand what you mean and give you feekback, dogs less so lol.
Puppies are great fun, dogs are the rewarding part of that investment for sure. It's when the real fun starts, but I love mine in their big stupid state.
