The Puppy Diaries: Sage Advice from a Fellow New Yorker

The Puppy Diaries: Sage Advice from a Fellow New Yorker

You may have read about our journey to getting our Labradoodle puppy, Lady Guinness, here. Puppies are magical and wonderful, but they are a ton of work. One of the funny things about living in the city is that people openly bestow their views on puppy rearing on you as you are taking your dog for a stroll. Sometimes you meet fellow New Yorkers who give you the funniest advice. Last night Guinness was out for her post-dinner walk, and we ran into an older gentlemen. It was windy and the air was biting through our coats, but he stopped to say hello to her. After giving her a number of loving pats on the head and ticking her chin, he looked up at us and asked in a serious voice, "Has she taken the puppy oath?". We laughed and exclaimed, "We hope so, what's that?". He replied, with a hint of a smile at the corners of his mouth, "It's a vow to never reveal your secrets."The man was delighted at his perfect delivery and then offered his second nugget of wisdom, asking us if we knew why puppies were on leashes. It's so the owners don't get lost. How true. #NewYorkMoments #PuppyDiaries
