Ok, let me take a deep breath and congratulate myself.
My corgi, Pebble, recently turned one year old, finally.
I have had her since she was 3 months old, throughout the past 9 months, it's been a tough one but yet rewarding. I learnt how to be more responsible and caring, to understand what unconditional love truly is. Well, I'm just 22, if I hadn't had Pebble, I think I wouldn't have learnt all this until I parent my own child.
So, now what? Here comes my question...
After 9 months of intensive love, care, and training, Pebble is now very well behaved and became inextricably bounded to my life. I slowly forgot about some strict rules that I used to be extremely picky about, such as:
- must sleep in her crate
- must not go on my couch
- must not go on my bed
Now I let her jump on the couch and nap, sleep anywhere she wants at night, jump on my bed after each shower.
I understand that dogs are dogs and I shouldn't treat them as human. And she's already one year old, I believe there are many things between us have been compromised. Should I be more lenient from now on?
