My Happy Place: Top Ten Reasons Why I "Love" Our Puppy
Do I love him or do I hate him?
Back when he was this size, I think I really loved him!
Ohhh he was cute when he was little! But now that he's a big puppy, the jury is still out ...
All that same energy in a large puppy body is trying my patience to say the least. Here are the top ten reasons I'm trying to "Love" him.
It's what I do. ;)
#10. Coming home to trash strewn all over my yard ... will keep me humble.
#9. Large holes everywhere ....less time I have to spend planting flowers, watering, and taking care of them. Yard beauty is overrated. This year, anyway.
#8. Scratches all over my feet and legs .... I am blessed to have this earthly body!
#7. Late night clean ups of chewed up puppy pillow .... good memories with the kids, (especially after the third pillow.)
#6. Instead of pepper spray tucked in my sports bra, I now have a real live running buddy - I think it's funny how he insists on holding the leash. :)
#5. Always a place for leftovers to go .... he is one power disposal!
#4. Chewed out cup holders ......keeps my soda consumption down.
#3. What once was this....
Now looks like this.....
Hence the reason for buying plants on clearance...
#2. Did I mention holes?
Or should I say "trenches", I mean look at this baby!!!
Even exposing sprinkler heads! Sheesh..come on dog...
And the #1 reason I "love" our puppy: He is teaching us about life and death....as he brings something dead into our yard almost daily. Ew.
I really believe that in another YEAR AND A HALF when he outgrows his "puppyness" we will really, really like him.
Until then... here's to a little patience and long suffering.
