"A puppy is like having a kid" - Really dude?

My best buddy and godfather to my two kids met me at the gym today for a quick workout. He has no kids and just got a puppy with his girlfriend. The following conversation ensued.

 

Buddy - This puppy is killling me. It's like having a kid.

 

Me - No shit, where's this puppy at?

 

Buddy - At home.

 

Me - Who's looking after it?

 

Buddy - Nobody, why?

 

Me - Think about it bro.

 

Buddy - Oh yeah, my bad. 

 

Conversation over.

Haha. They are a pain in the rear while trying to potty train and house train but nowhere near the level of my three kids. Phone Post 3.0

Don't be too had on him, EVERY couple that buys a puppy thinks it's a kid.
Until they have a kid and figure they no longer have time, the dog can fend for itself in the backyard. Phone Post 3.0

You have never raised English Bulldogs.

Totally agree. It's always amusing when people say this stuff. I do see the parallels though.

I kinda agree with your buddy.  It is somewhat similar, just different level of difficulty.  Raising a pup is like normal level and raising a kid is expert level.

I love my dog.

But any comparison to a child is asinine and reserved only for the cluelessly childless.

I pity their barren wombs. Phone Post 3.0

While I agree a puppy is nice to practice for a kid. Anyone that says it's the same is wee-ta-did. Phone Post 3.0

Congrats on the 14 years. 

 

Our oldest made it to 12.  We just got a new pup.  Little female born on Easter

Thanks brotha. She's definitely a princess. Deaf and dumb but she's a great girl. Still defying the odds.

Preferable to a kid, imo. 



Just try leaving a kid in the backyard all day with nothing but a bowl of water.
