    But don't you walk the dog? I mean, the dog needs at least two one hour walks every day, morning and evening and two small walks in between? That is the time for poop and pee and playing.

    I want a dog but understand it is too much work, I can't get up in the morning in the winter and stay out for an hour in the cold. And I would like to have a service dog but then nobody else can go out with it and feed it. If I break the rules, I loose the dog.

    I think I keep my cats, they are not much work.

      She is tiny and more of an indoor dog that doesn't require much exercise. I don't walk her, but have a big back yard she plays in.

        Yes, I am a bit overwhelmed thinking about it. I was only a few weeks pregnant when I got my puppy and did not know. I would have waited if I knew I was pregnant, but I'm very attached to her now.

Like small children, they don't have good bowel/ bladder control. feed the puppy and take it outside on a regular schedule, then take it outside 25 more times and praise praise praise when it does it's business outside. I really hope you read up about puppy care before you made the decision to get one. p.s. put everything out of reach that you don't want chewed.
          She has gotten a lot better and yes I have read a bunch on yorkies by now.

            It would seem that you knew, given that in your own words, you stated you got INTENTIONALLY pregnant less than three months of being with the baby daddy, so the baby was already being planned before you got the puppy.

            In any case, puppies are easy to get attached to, but they come with a lot of responsibility. That's even more the case with having a baby. The responsibility of neither should be made on a whim.
