Ever since the government demanded we stay inside, the number of dogs being adopted has skyrocketed. As a dog owner myself, this news warms my tiny, frail heart. However, there is one glaring issue that must be addressed. It's the fact that all these recent adoptees are putting the rest of us to shame.
These dogs get around the clock care, training, and affection. The owners have all the time in the world to teach their dogs tricks while working from home. This is a stark difference from PC (Pre-Covid), when puppies were locked in cages from 8am-6pm five days a week.
I’ve seen 4-month-old quarantine dogs make my 7-year-old mutt look like a complete moron. These little furballs are doing backflips and changing TV channels while my dog thinks he deserves a treat for taking a piss before bed. I fear that these hounds will learn too much. It's only a matter of time until one learns it can order food on the human’s glowing screen.
Considering the US refuses to take action against the pandemic, it looks like a second quarantine will be upon us soon. (Not really sure when the first ended) This will be accompanied by the rise in dog adoptions once again. I urge you all to be careful, soon chihuahuas will make the raptors from Jurassic Park look like animated Disney protagonists.
