As I mentioned, Bree recently got a schnauzer puppy. She eventually named it Wagner, a name which certainly meets with my approval (I’m sure she’s been desperately waiting for it). Yesterday she wrote an interesting post about how playing The Sims prepared her for dog ownership:
Like Sims, puppies pee all the time. It always seems like they shouldn’t have to go again already but the last thing you want is to leave it too long and be trying to clean up puddles while puppy joyfully tries to eat the paper towel you’re using to wipe the floor.
The Sims never really kept my attention–maybe I should stay away from pets, too?
