    Okay, I know this doesn't quite fit the sub-forum but it was the best I could find. Anyway, I'll get to the point.
    I have a ten week old puppy. I am considering the renting (not buying-I don't have the cash) a pinball machine. Is my puppy a problem?
    He sleeps in the mudroom and is either outside or there. As it is the only level place in my house that would be where I would put it. Can I keep him inside or do I have to leave him outside?
    Please help!

    puppies should be turned into glue to make kittens.

    Renting a pinball machine is a thing?!?

    I doubt he will do anything to a metal leg. However, the coils going off may spook him

    The leg levelers can be adjusted quite a bit so typically the room wouldn't need to be level or near it. My house is old and very uneven and it was never a problem after being set up so maybe there's another possible location. That said a puppy might piss on the legs, chew the cord, start multi player games and walk away. Definitely don't get bad cats.

    I kinda think you should prioritize the health and well-being of your puppy over a game. That said, if the dog is in the same room as the pin and he doesn’t like how loud it is, then he will leave. Just make sure you turn it off and he’ll go to sleep fine

    When we got our puppy 5 years ago I started spending less time focused on my games and more on him. A lot more outdoor time playing and walks with him. Then we got another puppy. I still spend less time working on games and playing them but I’m not complaining about it.

    If one asked (dog, pinball, problems) there is a bigger issue.

    When it comes down to it I'd rather have dogs around my pins all day rather than cats. They are always perched on them. I had to buy pinskin covers for all my pins.

    Who gets a dog and makes it sleep in the mudroom? Lawlor sleeps wherever he feels like sleeping.

    Men don't own kittens/cats, lonely women do.

    My dogs hang out in the pinball room all the time.
    They just basically lay around in there.

    Oh yeah... I saw that... I like your layout. 3 ramps... Middle ramp might be tight... But, since its in the middle it might be in a sweet spot for the flippers, and also if its not crowded or obstructed, then it could work really nice.

    Hey there! Got a moment?
