It’s a GIRL!!!!!!

We have been very busy these last couple of days.  My husband has been looking for a dog for months and on Sunday we finally brought one home.  She’s a 3 month old puppy named Maggie.  They told us she is a Shepard/Lab mix, but she looks all English Pointer to us.  She’s really great with us, especially with the kids.  The foster family told us she is a people dog and they couldn’t be more right.  If she is left in the room by herself for half a second, she starts to cry.  Boy, I really had no idea how much work a puppy is because I’ve never had a dog.  I like to think I’m a goldfish person (BTW, Donnie and Marie are doing GREAT!)  The first day we had her I thought I would go insane, but she’s fitting right into our routine.  They told us dogs are like kids– they respond well to a routine they can count on.  Fortunately I have 2 police officers (my 2 kids) living here who don’t let her get away with any shenanigans.

Luckily for us the foster family already crate trained her (they are our new BFF’s) and we are keeping up what they graciously started.  They said it’s the only way they can stay sane while fostering all those puppies (they’ve been doing this for 12 years I think he said).

Now if she would just sleep through the night, we will be forever grateful.  The last 2 nights she’s been crying for up to one hour.  Loud crying.  ***sigh***  It’s almost like having a newborn in the house again.

    so cute! And it’s not *like* having a newborn, it IS HAVING A NEWBORN. It’s so worth it though. We got a dog 3 months ago and we love, love, love him.

    Here’s to many happy years and memories with your new family member!
