What is a Puppy?

Picture created by Eve Hoffman
No matter the stage, puppy or adult the dog need the same basic care and love Most would describe a puppy as a offspring of two adult dogs. We are going to take some time and explore what a puppy really is and will become. Many people will adopt a puppy only to be disappointing and abandon the puppy in a local shelter when the puppy reaches a year old or better
Time passes quickly. All my babies in this picture are senior now. Stay tune for updated pictures. 

Most would describe a puppy as a offspring of two adult dogs. Also, a  warm cute small puppy with sweet breath. We are going to take some time and explore what a puppy really is and will become. Many people will adopt a puppy only to be disappointing and abandon the puppy in a local shelter when the puppy reaches a year old or better. 

Fun Fact: 
Did you know large dogs are puppies until he or she reaches the age of three. Research reveals smaller puppies mature faster. When we adopt a dog that is three years or younger we must be aware there will be puppy behaviors until he or she reaches the adult stage. Even then your dog will still have behavior similar to a human toddler. Training is a key, because a untrained puppy becomes a untrained adult dog. The sad part is the adult dog will act like a puppy if he or she feel this is the only way to keep your love and attention.  



The a puppy will grow into an adult dog. However, a puppy remains a puppy on a mental level for his or her whole life. Research proves that a puppy's mental capacity only reaches the level of a three year old human child regardless if the dog is 5 years or 20 years young. Most loving pet parents still see the puppy well in the aging the stage. Yes, even senior dogs are still puppies. 

One thing I have learned over the years of having different dogs is all dogs look the same as he or she was as a puppy. In most cases the only change is the size of the puppy. For example when I first got Duke he was eight pounds. Today is is about one hundred and thirty pounds. The amazing aspect he truly looks the same as when he was baby, with one exception, Duke was once the size of his back foot. 

Growing old or older is a human fear. When someone becomes sick and even an animal most people want to avoid. Facing our furry loved ones aging and dying can be overwhelming and heartbreaking. We must hold onto the love and benefits our fur-babies give to us freely without restrictions. When we take on a life we must be sure that we can make a lifetime commitment through sickness and health. No matter what age of a dog, he or she is a baby that still seeks loving and comfort. This is especially true when our aging puppies are ill.  

Also, keep in mind what age is best for your needs as well as the need of the puppy when you adopt or take on a dog or puppy. Sometimes getting a older dog is better for a first pet. Often times the dog has basic training and will prove endless love of appreciation. No matter the stage of the puppy always honor the unconditional love and attention from your puppy.

Our fur-babies are pure example of what true unconditional love and innocents no matter the stage of life. Once you gain a puppies love you have a best friend for life regardless if you stay committed. Be sure to honor the love and see the puppy within your aging dog. 

What is a puppy to you? No matter how we define a puppy we must always understand the puppy is a lifetime commitment. Puppies are not toys or present to be enjoy and disposed as trash. Also, the puppy will grow and mature physically in aging stages, while still remaining a baby at heart, spirit, and mind.  Do you still see your puppy in your aging dog?  Leave a comment tell me what is on your mind.
