A single Newry woman with a new puppy has said ‘it’s basically the same if not harder than having a new baby’ we can reveal.
The woman who has never had a child has spoken out about what she describes as ‘the awful burden of parenthood’.
We spoke with the woman, 37 year-old Claire TightFlapps and she told us:
“Oh I’m literally exhausted right now baah. People don’t see the work that goes on behind the scenes. I have to feed the pup TWICE a day, fucking TWICE. Then there are walks on top of that.
The food smells rotten too, believe me, I’d rather be able to whip my tit out and feed it. I ONLY got 7 hours sleep last night as the pup wanted out for toilet. Fucking nightmare.”
