    My mom recently "puppy sat" for me for two days while I was out of town. So today, before I got home, my mom said she'd drop off my puppy so that he would be here at my house when I got home. (She lives about 10 minutes away and sees my dog maybe once a week.) Well, when I walked in the door...
