Been Busy...

With my new puppy!...and frankly I'm exhausted. My husband has wanted a dog for a long time, but we were on two extremes --- super huge vs. purse. I had some pretty strong preferences because with all his travel I am really the primary caretaker. After months of discussion we decided on a breed (f rench bulld0g) and the hunt began. All of us are adjusting and it's better at times than others, but we're working through it. The cat is going to be a bit more of a challenge, but I do think they will eventually work out there differences. *fingers crossed*

The good
  • She's highly entertaining. I've got to figure out how to take a video of her.
  • She keeps me from snacking because I just don't have the time trying to work and keep track of her at the same time.
The not so good
  • She's so young. I don't want to do something that creates anxiety for her. I've been pretty much alone this week, so one morning she was just so fussy that I didn't want to leave her to go to camp and think I abandoned her. But we are getting the hang of it and I've got her working toward a schedule that should keep her sleeping until I get back from camp in the morning.
  • My lack of sleep. Ugh, it's been challenging, but everyone keeps assuring me that we'll get in a pattern...please let that be soon! 
  • It's highly likely that there will be quite a few puppy pictures.

How cute! It's like having a new baby! What's her name?

AWWWWW!!! A new puppy to stalk!! I mean admire from afar. /nod

What's her name, if you don't mind sharing of course. I know you are very private online. If you don't want to give her actual name, name her something on the blog that we can call her. : )

She is sooooooo sweet. Make sure you look up puppy playtime at Pet's Smart and take her to every one they have. They are free and it's a great way to socialize your new baby.

OMG! So adorable! A puppy isn't much different from a baby..up several times a night, they whine, they cry...the difference? They're "potty trained" A LOT faster. LOL

I struggled a lot when we first got our dog, a greyhound. I'm home the most so I tend to be the primary caregiver, too, primarily the picker-uper when something gets chewed on/broken or there's an accident (very few thankfully!). It took me longer than most people told me it would to get comfortable with having a dog but now it feels like we've had her forever and she's definitely a part of our family.

Your dog is such a cutie! Good luck with everything!
