“Getting outdoors and seeing Central Park has been great.

We have interacted with more people than before getting Otto.

On the other hand, Otto has been a test to our relationship.

We have to get up earlier to walk him, so we are operating on less sleep.

Also, teaching him to walk on a leash has been challenging because he get distracted very easily.”

“We googled breeders and my girlfriend found a reputable breeder.

We waited two months for a litter and we’ve had him for three months.

It’s been tough when he’s pooped all over the apartment, and it’s ongoing.

We share the cleanup evenly.”

“We asked if we could meet the parents, literally.

She is a small breeder who has eight dogs and only has three or four litters per year.

She has great testimonials, and we got to meet Otto’s parents.

It is a great and healthy environment for the dogs.

We waited for a litter for a month and a half and have had him since the day after Thanksgiving,”

“There are always reasons not to, but in the end we decided to go for it.

Our hearts trumped our rational thought.

We always liked Dachshunds.

We joked about having one because they are funny and sweet.

I did a lot of research, as to avoid a puppy mill.

I read about what to ask breeders.”

“I didn’t question why to get a dog, I wondered what was stopping me from getting a dog.

My fiancé and I are from the U.K. and we wondered what would happen if we went back with a dog.

Luckily there is no more quarantine, if you get your dog the right injections.

Also, I thought about living in a small space, and giving our dog a good quality of life.

We wanted to know that with our work schedules that we could hire a dog walker and get him enough exercise.”
