The wife & I have a new puppy in the house - - a little pug named Beatrice.
No amount of reading, talking, rationalizing could have prepared us for the REALITY of what raising a puppy REALLY entails. She's a beauty, but it's a ton of work.
Any dog owning bicycle commuters out there, and if so, how does owning a dog affect (or not) your commute schedule? Gotta get up early, take the dog for a walk, etc. Does this cut into the time you need to get to/from work? How do you manage it?
