Life As We Know It - That's the name of a current movie but it also describes our life...life as we know it has changed. Sadie, our new little puppy, is home! We picked her up around 5pm last night.
She wasn't crazy about riding in her crate but she settled down about half way home. She has a way of talking to you, interspersed with barks and yips. I think she's going to be a vocal pup. LOL!
The first evening was filled with little accidents...not unexpected. She ate, drank, played and slept. She crashed for the night around 10pm and we went to bed at 11. Around 2am she woke and I took her outside (got to put a flashlight by the door). Cold, drizzly but we did what we had to do...back in bed she whined for about 20 minutes and then dropped back to sleep until after 7am. Pretty good!
We took her for her first vet appointment. She was a bit intimidated by all the sights, sounds and smells outside and then by the new folks inside. But the shivering soon stopped and she took it all in stride. Not a whimper when she had her first shot.
When we got home I took her for a walk down the street and over to the shore where the water rushing in wasn't her favorite thing. By the time we walked back she was ready to play. All in all, a good morning in puppy-land!
I promise to not deluge you with puppy pics but here are a couple from last night.
Till next time - keep on rollin',
