Living without a puppy for an entire week (and probably another week) is quite a change. However, after you stop expecting to see him, you start to notice the extra time available for human activities, which is kind of nice.
No morning or evening potty breaks. No traveling to training classes. No walks for training or exercise. No hair on the dinner table or imbedded in the carpet. A person could get used to having an additional fourteen hours a week.
