    Default Should I start a new paragraph where it begins Even though

    Rocky can sometimes be naughty. He jumps on my bed and tries to tear the sheets. I would
    punish him by not playing with him. Even though Rocky is a big responsiblity, I still enjoy taking care of him.

    You don't have to, but if I can make a purely subjective point, it breaks somewhat the flow of the paragraph.:
    1) Rocky can be naughty (why's that?) =>
    2) He jumps on my bed and... (oh, bad dog) =>
    3) I would punish him (yeah, that's normal) =>
    4) Even though taking care of R. is a big responsibility (oh, that's the bottom line already?)

    1, 2 and 3 work well together, but there's no smooth transition between 3 and 4.

    Oh well, maybe it's all hogwash after all
