First, I want to say Happy New Year!!! Good Riddance 2013! (Had to be said)...now to the point. Recently I purchased Raising puppies and Kids Together by by Pia Silvani and Lynn Eckhardt. While very informative it is geared more toward raising puppies and toddlers. Does anyone know of any good reference books for raising puppies and older kids (9 yrs old)? I keep having conversations with my son on how routines, etc. will change, what he will be RESPONSIBLE for in helping to raise our new addition and his response is always..."I know mom". Hmmmm, right. He's nine! He doesn't know squat about raising this puppy. I don't want to sound like the "nagging" mom so I'm asking everyone here for any helpful tips, book ideas, etc. for my boy. I feel I need to kind of train him before this puppy.
Does that sound strange? Am I thinking about this too much?
