I'm tired.
LOL!

My best friend has never had a puppy of her own before and when she was living with me she couldn't believe how much work puppies are. She didn't understand that if the puppy was out and about on her watch that she actually needed to watch him. She would get so frustrated when he would come out of her room with one of her belongings. She told me that doesn't think she'll ever get a puppy.

I actually don't mind it, I like taking care of them and I like that they need you, I like that you watch them learn and watch them grow. I love puppies.

Hahaha oh this is so true so true.

We have -40 windchill expected tonight. Dinozzo wouldn't even stay outside long today. I might be making a trip with him down to Arkansas with my mom on an emergency trip so hopefully I will be avoiding that. My grandmother's dog had to be pts last night and we are worried about the grandmothers well being.

Sp00ks Oh the crate is a wonderful thing. Ours made it all night last night however, I suspect there is a surprise in there for us. Haven't checked yet.

Today is in the low 20's, wind chill in the teens. I've spent entirely too much time outside already brrrr!

MaggieRoseLee Puppies are SO hard! I have to have a 5 yr + split so I only remember the good parts.

Make sure you use baby gates, closed doors and crate time to help with the management and your ability to locate and keep and eye on the puppy!

I had to laugh...my youngest daughter--nearly 15 and OH SO 15--was all offended the other day because she said he was with her...and she got sidetracked on the computer and he got into her goldfish food (her room is the typical 15 year-old's disaster). She said to my husband and I "Who was supposed to be watching him????". The "bloom is off the rose" I think the saying goes--at least with the kids!

3dognite Very true!

Gretchen Look on the bright side, it will keep you in shape, and every time you have to clean up an "accident" just look at it as an opportunity to keep your floor or carpet clean. Enjoy that sweet puppy smell and soft fur while you can.
