The introduction of a puppy into ones life should not be taken lightly. As I sit typing, the puppy is finally asleep after playing all day & pooping everywhere & generally keeping me away from my work! It’s like having a walking toddler, with no nappy & no 9 months in the tummy to prepare. Don’t get me wrong, Cassie is gorgeous and I love this little thing to bits, but sleep deprivation seems to have already set in…
For those of you that follow me on Twitter you may remember me tweeting about my surprise birthday presie last Friday. Dirk kept me guessing where we were going for my birthday and once we got there & I saw the Wet nose sign, tears streamed down my face that he was going to be giving me a puppy. He had been planning it and had seen the little pup advertised on Wet nose’ website. He reserved her and when we got to seeing her, I fell in love with this bounding, energetic, fiesty little character. Big floppy ears, tiny body & so excited to see anyone and everyone.
Raising a puppy (in the hopes of having a well behaved dog) is not for sissies. “Come do a wee” is probably the most used phrase that I’ve used ever! Play time consists of Cassie chewing my toes, biting my ankles, gnawing on my fingers but giving me lots of kisses making me fall in love with her all over again.
I love Dirk so much for being such an amazing husband & taking this big step in our lives together – he will make such a great puppy Daddy.
Go and check out Wet nose website. While we were there we looked at other doggies & kittys that need homes. They are so well looked after at Wet Nose, and all they want is a loving new home.
