I texted my mom yesterday and said, "Puppies are a lot of work. God bless you for raising a baby. I can't even imagine. We're a little over 2 days into this and feeling tired already!"
I can't imagine how overwhelmed moms can and do get - when prepping and dealing with an infant and the fact that they have to raise a living thing. For the human moms, between "What to Expect When You're Expecting," lamaze and everything else, there's a lot to take in.
I'm experiencing my own little mom shock already - and I didn't have to read that book or pant on a mat with my husband. It goes without saying thought, that when it comes to prepping, it can even get out of hand with a pup (but in a good, well informed, best practice way).
We're referencing everything (thank you Internet, our French Bulldog book, the AKC Puppy Manual, etc.). I even caught myself referring to "they" when talking about how to raise Moxie. Like, "they say a schedule is imperative," "they say you should do this."

Wait, isn't that how the world works too?
