Yesterday's post got tabled and then never got done. It was discussing difficulty waking up mornings and all the stupid rain.
I went to finish it but my tone feels so different today. I see something giant and yellow in the sky! Rumor has it we are in for perhaps 8 nice days of dry and sunshine! SO EXCITED!
AND DRUM ROLL PLEASE....
We got a new puppy AND I am SOOOO in LOVE with her!
Now I never thought the husband would let us have another animal at our place. We have our 7 year old golden retriever, Matches! When we got him my husband thought it would be cute to say, "We were playing with Matches!" So goes the story of his name!
And then we have my lil 5 old year kitten, Zippo. Zippo is a great cat. Thank goodness because the husband would settle for no less.
Yet, between these two guys, we are constantly sweeping and cleaning up animal hair! The husband has always said no more!
About 8 weeks ago, there were 2 litters born at Joey's mom which totaled 17 puppies. We were there that day and my heart was melting!
But for whatever reason, 5 weeks ago, his mom must have asked my husband on a good day or perhaps the husband knew how excited I would be, because he finally said ok!
I have been counting the days just waiting for my little cutie pie to come home! Oh and of course I visited my puppies often!
Yesterday was the day we finally brought our little girl home! We decided to name her Ember in keeping with our fire theme!
I can't wait to get home from work tonight to take her and Matches to play! I am actually quite excited for Matches too as I think having a companion will be nice for him! For now he needs to settle a bit as he starts jumping around like crazy and lil Ember has been scared and hiding under our feet. I am certain they will become the best of friends as Matches is really good with other dogs! As a side note, I really wish I had a nanny cam to see what is going on at home! Ember is in a decent sized Xpen and there is no doubt Matches is nearby....and hopefully has not jumped in!
While I hate doing it, we are crate training her. I really wanted to just hold her in my arms while I slept but we put her in the crate last night. She howled and barked and cried quite a bit before finally falling asleep. Then she started again at 4:50 when I leaped out of bed to get her. My alarm was set for 5:10 so actually it made getting up easier than normal. Maybe my new little alarm clock will be a good thing as I managed a great workout this morning since I was up and going! The hardest part was easily having to quit petting the cutie!
