I am getting old....
It has been 8 yrs since we have had a LB dog and 4 for a SB. What a difference a few years make. Before we got Silas, I was like yeah I got the whole puppy thing I mean after all we have done this a dozen or more times over 21 years. Well....let's just say when I look at my partner after taking him out a dozen times in a few hours, set my alarm clock to get up a couple of times a night, pick up the 20 toys randomly scattered throughout the house, almost trip and fall from the bundle of black fur rolling through the room etc...... she has the look on her face that she is biting her tongue trying to hold back the words I told you so....LOL. Don't get me wrong I would not trade this time with Silas but I sure would not mind if time sped up from time to time
Having 3 older dogs with the pup does not help either.
I have never had an issue with house breaking a dog and never took longer than a week or so but boy, either Silas is hard headed or I am losing my mojo
I keep thinking back when Kesler my previous GSD was a pup and boy I don't think she expelled this much energy BUT then I remember I was eight years younger and all of our other current dogs were also younger pups.
I so love this boy and would do it all again but I think my grey hair is multiplying by the day. Whew, I am exhausted but I keep on keeping on and keep my eye on the prize.
Just thought I would share this Tuesday morning! Hope everyone has a great week!
