I've learned a lot about what to do and what not to do when choosing a dog but that doesn't help me much now. I'm stuck with Pichu for two reasons:
1. My parents took back Captain when I was around six and it devestated me so there's no way I'm going to do this to my kids!
2. I can't live with the knowledge of what it will do to Pichu. He's slowly trusting and bonding with us and to pull the rug out from under him would just be cruel. The guilt would kill me.
So that means the only solution is to travel back in time and do it over. I'm thinking about buying Uncle Rico's Time Machine..........
