Default OMG Read this and be annoyed with me - new puppy

My roommate has adopted a pup. I think (hope) it's 8 weeks. It's a shephard husky mix apparently. The 'breeders' had the mom and puppies living under a car in the backyard. Now, Jamie, the roommate wants to keep the puppy out on our porch. PLUS I have no ideas how my dogs are going to react. He just brought her home, played with her for awhile and now left her in the basement. Is it puppyproofed? NO! Christ. Like I need this work. Now I'll feel horrible if something happens to the pup so I have to do my best to make sure it's taken care of.



Cuz I sure am.

I thought by your title be annoyed with me it meant we should be annoyed at you. LOL So I am an idiot and now I get it. I would for sure be mad as heck. Like my kids say " mommy is like a bear with a sore paw" when I am angry! I would be like that with your roomate. I would also be telling him to get his butt in gear and look after that pup because it is his responsiblity. Very nice sitting down and discussing it with all the people who live in the house.

I'm willing to bet Jamie is going to get quite an education on being a responsible pet owner from you whether Jamie wants to or not! (as well as being a responsible & considerate roomate!)

Yup. He had mentioned that he wanted it before but I didn't think he was serious and then this mornign he went out and got it without saying anything. Sneaky, eh?

PLUS he's always hinting that my dogs should sleep outside so I don't know if that poor pup has a chance. I told him that puppies can't regulate their body temperature well.

I don't know if I'll sit him down cuz known of us are the sort to do that but I'll be giving my thoughts whether he wants to hear from me or not!

And he'll be learning a lot from me AND from that poor pup. I don't think he's every had a puppy before

I know I was mad when my husband first brought Hannah home (without asking). I was mad too when his friends dumped Maverick off on us too. He promised to take care of both the dogs and he never did anything for them (except now he tells everybody he did most of the housebreaking and training). It's very frustrating when this happens, I know EXACTLY where you are coming from.

Tell him his dog will die if he leaves it outside. He need to get it toys, a blanket and a bed....he doesn't sound ready for a dog at all

Hugs to you Saje. I agree, that pup shouldn't sleep outside and neither should your dogs. I'd sit him down and have a long discussion about the way things are going to be and what he needs to do as a responsible dog owner. Hang in there. I feel for you and the new pup.
