|Yes! Totally regretted getting Duncan for, like...the first few months I had him! I was just out of college and knew nothing about dogs. He was my first dog, ...by that I mean, I hadn't had a dog growing up, was never even around them much. And I went out and adopted an 8 week old puppy. I had NO idea how hard it is to raise a puppy...the challenges, (mouthing, biting, chewing, housetraining, insane energy, etc), but also I just hadn't any idea what an investment of time and effort it takes, so I had been unprepared to have that in my life, you know?
I was pretty miserable and frustrated. Giving up on him, or getting rid of him, never really crossed my mind though. I started learning how to raise a puppy...on-the-job training, lol.
Needless to say, I have no regrets now about getting Duncan, and having had him in my life for 17 years.
