Yay for Almost-Gotcha-Day! Try to get sme sleep tonight-you'll be thankful tomorrow!
How far do you have to drive to pick up "Charlie?"
We are doing great over here. I tried uploading some photos yesterday but for some reason it kept rejecting them, I think they may have been too large. I have some really cute ones-
Thelma Lou has pretty much settled in to her nighttime routine. She poops right before bed (11 or so) and then gets up around 3 to pee and again between 5-6. Then she goes back to sleep until 7 or so, pees again, has breakfast, then poops. I've got it down.
Last night my 18yo slept downstairs with her so I could sleep through the night. It was nice.
She LOVES being outside. LOVES it. And it's been raining, which makes it even greater! She rolls in all the wet grass, jumps in wet leaves, leaps and bounds like she's in a Pixar short film, and I swear sometimes she squeals with delight.
She likes carrying things around in her mouth-pretty much anything and everything. I think it's hard teaching her what she can and can't pick up, so we've just got to be better about not leaving things in her reach. This morning she brought me a toy catalog (Christmas shopping?).
She has no interest in fetch. She just looks at what we throw like, "Well, what on earth did you do that for?"
She has had some very nice sits for us, and it's just the cutest thing. Her tiny little self sitting and looking expectantly for her treat.
She can hold her potty for quite a long time. She doesn't go out more an once an hour when we're home, and last night we were at church and were gone over 3 hours with her in her crate and she did great. Didn't seem agitated at all when we got back and hadn't pottied. In fact, we haven't even used one of her training pads yet.
Today is her vet appointment. I have noticed she has developed a rash on her tummy where there is no fur. I am wondering if she might be allergic to the grass outside?
Here is a picture of her snuggling last night. It's not the greatest pic, but at least it'll load.
