...you're standing outside in your bathrobe at 7 am waiting for a tiny puppy to "go potty" so that you can get back inside where it's warm. Said puppy is more interested in wandering around, sniffing, picking up leaves, stopping and scratching his collar, etc. But patience is a virtue, and victory is (finally) mine!
I can't help but think, "Here I am again, starting over with a new pup.” It's wonderful and terrifying and exhausting all at once. My hair is not washed. My home is strewn with toys and other puppy-related detritus. The other dogs are adjusting. My socks probably don't match. And I wouldn't trade it for the world.
I'm going to continue blogging about my daily efforts at "Raising Pico," but for now, please welcome the newest member of the Sidekick family!
Pico de Gallo, approximately 13 weeks old, Chihuahua (mix?), arrived home Friday 1/22/2021, adopted from local rescue Saving Great Animals.
