Zach and I decided to get a puppy in August. We both had dogs growing up, but you know how it goes when you're younger... Mom ends up actually taking care of the dog. I'm not sure if I knew what we were getting into, but Buster turned out to be quite the handful. He was 20 weeks old when we got him and supposedly "house-trained." Ha! We learned that the hard way, as well as a million other little things that you don't expect when you've never raised a puppy. All in all, Buster has gotten a lot better and learned a lot (as have we). He's playful, quite stubborn, and makes life a little more interesting and fun when he's not chewing on everything in our apartment!
