Blog of course!
It’s been a rough few days here with the integration of the new puppy! Well, it hasn’t been that bad, but the fact that I am writing this at 5:48am doesn’t make me all that happy!
We originally put Stella’s cage upstairs in the spare bedroom (where all my lovely crafts are) and the poor pup just hated it. Whined and howled and barely slept a wink (meaning she slept most of the day). Well, I put up with it for a few days and just couldn’t handle it anymore….
The clincher was when I let our other dog, Tinsley, out of her cage in the kitchen one morning and she BOLTED straight up the stairs to get her sister. Something had to be done.
So I brought the ginormous cage downstairs so it practically fills our entire dining room.
And just like that, silence from Stella.
Who would have known that all she wanted was to be around her sister. Awwwwwww
However, this little puppy, at 9 weeks old, still has a bladder the size of a dried pea. Which, lucky for me, means 4:30am wake-ups to let her outside! Yippy!
These usually go pretty smoothly and they go right back in the cage to bed. However, we have found out that our neighbors get their grandkids dropped off at about 5:20am every single morning. And when those car doors slam, you better bet Tinsley is on high alert and barking like a fool.
So yes, here I am …. wide awake and with two pups snoozing at my side.
Guess I’ll get some homework done now… Have a great day everyone! Remember to smile! 🙂
