    That's why kittens are much easier:
    1. Toss a marble.
    2. Document the carnage. :)

    Most of these would apply to a 2 year human as well. Except I haven't had to brush coffee grounds off his nose (but tonight he stuck his head in the fridge and came out with a bottle of hershey's syrup in his mouth).

    Flashcube, now that's a blast from the past! And the only thing worse that a puppy is a precocious parrot. They act like two year old spoiled brats for life.

    Depends do you need to clean up the mess? If so it does sound masochistic. :lol:

    aww. all i picture is a little fuzz ball golden retriever destroying the place.
    reminds me of my dog and cat. they team up together against me.. i swear. one takes food off the counter (cat.. dogs too fat) the other eats it (dog.. because he's bigger and tougher)
