I bet some of you might have thought my blog was becoming a dog blog over the last week or so. I’ve certainly written enough posts about getting our new puppy and how she’s been doing during her first few days in our home!
Midnight has certainly taken up a lot of our time. I’ve barely had time to blog and that’s very unusual for me. We are starting to get into a routine now though. I think I’ve figured out how to have a little me time by putting her in her crate for naps while trying to make sure she also gets enough play time and little walks outside for potty training.
I knew having a puppy would be a big change and that it would be time consuming, but there’s been a few times that I’ve felt that I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. I think I’ll manage though … I mean, I managed to train my lizards to potty in certain places and even at certain times so if I can do that I can train a dog. I know I can. Well … I hope I can!
I do think I’ve become addicted to all things dog though. I’ve been reading sites about puppies and we’ve been to the pet store 3 times in the last 5 days! If this keeps up I’ll have to find out if they have something like a drug rehabilitation clinic for canine addicts. LOL
I do want to thank everyone that’s stopped by to give me some advice on raising and training a puppy. Your tips have been very helpful and as always, if you have more tips feel free to leave a comment. I haven’t been replying to everyone because I simply haven’t had the time, but I do appreciate your thoughts. I will reply to all of you shortly.
I expect that this blog will be getting back to it’s normal type of posts now. Of course there will be some puppy updates or even pleas for help every now and then, but now that we’re starting to have a routine I should be able to blog more often about a variety of topics again.
