Today I met my dads girlfriends new puppy, a 9 month old Bernese Mountain dog named Max. This puppy has been talked up to me as a super high energy beast with no fear of anything. He wanted nothing to do with me, retreating to the inner living room and whimpering. Food nor treats could coax him out and we were all pretty baffled. Getting rejected by girls is manageable, but puppy rejection makes me reevaluate life.
