Dog: 1 Dolls: 0

I'd never gotten around to getting rid of stuffed animals that an ex gave me. I had them stored and forgot about them. I was throwing them into a trashbag for disposal but then my dog started taking them out and running all over the place with them. I thought, "Hey great idea!" So now the plush toys have been converted into dog toys and he's having fun chewing them up!

Saw this ad and thought it was silly enough to save it.

Oh Happy Day

Today was the first time the puppy was left home alone and the entire time I was out I prayed he wouldn't ruin any of the furniture. Came home to find the television and the caller ID unplugged but the wires weren't chewed on (Thankfully!). I felt like I had left my child at home and I needed to return ASAP. I was imagining him whimpering and chewing on everything but when I came home he was sound asleep. He's made peace with one of the other dogs. They go wild and chase one another AND they even share toys. I'm trying to crate train him and so far that's going super. He's basically training himself because all I'm doing is keeping it tidy. One thing that I find really funny about him is his whining. When he's sleeping he wants everybody to be quiet. If you make a noise he will whine and toss and turn. He's like a grumpy old man only cuter! I can't see him when it's dark, he sure loves pouncing on my toes and he loves going for drives. Today was such a good day. I hope your week started out as well as mine.

I know it's been out for a while now but I just saw "The Constant Gardener" this weekend and I absolutely loved it.

Day 2

He's adjusting well and the other dogs are warming up to him!

I am NOT naming him Elvis

I'll take pictures of the pup today. I'm trying to get him adjusted to being around us, our other dogs aren't being as friendly as I thought they would be. The male shihtzu has decided to not even give him a chance, he hates him but I'm working on it! He hides behind my feet a whole lot and plays with a chew toy, he surprised me and used the potty where I showed him (twice!) and he's not as destructive as I thought he would be... wait til he gets more accustomed and then maybe his true inner demon will appear. His eyes are grayish blue, pretty! And his coat is MILK CHOCOLATE - I love him!

And of course Mom thinks I should name him Elvis.

Puppy Love

We have a new addition to our family! He's 6 weeks old and I'll get to bring him home tomorrow. My WONDERFUL Sister has surprised me with a puppy and I'm so excited! I will post a picture of him real soon. I've been wanting a dog of this breed for ages and I can't wait to see him!
