Life gets busy… especially when you have 2 kids under 10, and multiple LARGE dogs.
I just looked, my last post was in February. I should be better about writing more often, but as I said above, life gets busy…
How has it gotten busy?
- Kids sports
- Activities / hobbies
- Dog shows
- Work load
- Laziness (guilty)
I know, excuses… excuses… I sit at a computer all day for work, you’d think this writing “thing” would be easier to keep under control.
I think around when I did my last post we actually brought in another dog. If you’ve read my blog before, you know that we had to re-home a dog because he wasn’t getting along with his “fur siblings.” He’s now THRIVING in his new environment and SPOILED ROTTEN!
In March, we were given the opportunity to have our Big Guy’s littermate sister, she needed to be re-homed from the breeder, so we took her in. It was a rough transition, more for us than for her.
Our other 2 dogs got used to her pretty quick, but she was a kennel dog, so she had no skills. She didn’t know how to walk on a leash, she was scared, didn’t know what grass was, didn’t know “no” or “come” or any commands, wasn’t house trained. She was like a ferrel dog that we just stuck in our pack. Luckily, she’s transitioned well.
When we brought her home, my husband built a dog run for her in the yard for her to spend her time in, but she didn’t like it. She enjoys laying by my feet while I work all day. She also likes to lay on the couch. She is now very, very spoiled, and loves her new surroundings.
More to come…
