Sprogs are good for testing all your other personality traits though - such as restraint for example.I don’t have any pets currently as still in shared accommodation, but hoping to get a mortgage in a couple of years and will definitely be getting a puppy as soon as possible. I firmly believe a person is a fundamentally better human being with a pet in their life. They teach us love and patience in a way that nothing else can, even sproglets.
They also help you develop a finely tuned ability to use paranoia and suspicion to instil a deep fear in others.
Life skills of a sort?
