Expanding Our Family
Finally after numerous years of begging hubs finally broke down and let us get a puppy. Her name is Lulu. She's almost 4 months old and she's a mix of half maltese/half shih tzu.
It seems like I've dreamt of the day we'd finally get a pup forever. But actually having a puppy has been a rude awakening. Growing up I always had a dog. And I remember the tough first few weeks when you bring puppy to your home. However, Iwith really don't remember it being this rough (no pun intended...haha). I guess once you're out of the woods with the difficult parts you just forget how hard it was.
Hopefully things will start getting a little easier for us soon. A lot of it is trial and error. Don't let her sleep on the couch with us because she'll be wide awake in the middle of the night. Weigh down her pen in just the right places so she can't move it around when we leave for work during the day. And most importantly be able to recognize her potty dance...which in her case is more like a potty pounce.
Hubs, Lulu, and I are all learning it as we go. And that's all I can really ask for.
