I just don't understand some dog owners. Teddy and I walk by 1 house that has a fenced in yard and a puppy that was so happy to see Teddy because he was bored and lonely. After about 3 weeks my wife heard he was given to a different family after he ate a mattress. Two weeks later they have a different puppy. I was always brought up that when you got a puppy it became a new family member for life and you took care of it to the best of your ability until the very end good, bad or challenging. My wife reminded me just because I think like that not everyone does. Just proves I married a very wise woman.
