You've decided that you want a puppy. That's a fine decision, but just remember that what you're really bringing home is a dog. Puppies are very cute and cuddly and small, but they can grow up to be large adult dogs. Bringing home that little bundle of energy and fur is a long-time commitment to another being. You are saying that you want the responsibility of caring for and loving and training an animal: grooming, walking, feeding, taking him to the veterinarian, and paying the bills. This section is a reminder of all that goes into sharing your life with a puppy.
