Having a new puppy makes it difficult to blog.
This is the closest I’ve ever been to having a baby, and let me tell you, it’s no cake walk. Planning our days and sleep schedule around an animal’s bowel moments and meals has been an adjustment. While I’ve loved this first week with Penny, I’ll be honest – I am exhausted. The good thing is, I think Penny feels the same way.
I can’t even deal with how freaking cute she is.
I took her to the vet on Monday and she’s weighing in at 26 pounds. The vet told me that when we come back for her next round of shots in three weeks, she’ll be up to 50 pounds.
After having our neighbor’s 17 month old Great Dane come play with Penny this week, I find that easy to believe.
Most people have told us we’re nuts for getting a Great Dane, but we’re so excited and completely in love. We start her training classes next week, and it’s something we’ll be taking very seriously. I can’t have a 110 pound puppy who doesn’t listen to me.
That being said, I think she already knows I’m the boss 😉
Have a great weekend, my friends! I’ll see ya around here when I get some time! (And some material besides a dog.)
