Yes, Dora. You stated it perfectly. If I were to be given a dog as a surprise, I surely wouldn't know how to go about caring for him. I actually did get a dog as a present when I was a kid and I surely wasn't ready for it. I let my mom and other family members care for it, and they all weren't ready. The dog got a little out of hand for a while.
