  Raising a Puppy: A day in the life with Bruno the Boxer puppy  

 
 

What's involved in the care of a puppy? They are adorable, no one can argue that, but not everyone may have the time it takes to raise one. At 7 weeks old, caring for Bruno is like caring for a newborn baby. There are different responsibilities, as dogs and humans are very different, but the same amount of work. I have had three children and the care my babies required is the closest thing I can compare to the care this 7-week-old puppy requires. If I raise him right, the work will lessen over time, but until then he will keep me very busy.
