Zoey has been home with us for a bit over a week now.

She is a puppy.

Puppies are like babies.

Lots o' work.

Everytime I think things are going well, she changes. Her housetraining was going really good. But now when I take her out, she plays around and though I try to be patient with her, it gets old--really fast.

She is a cutie though.

Zoey, thankfully, is a very small dog so her doo is small and her puddles are small and the few accidents she's had are easy to clean. But, alas, I don't want to be cleaning up after her for months so I'm really wanting this training to take hold in her teeny-tiny brain.

Mike is the one getting up in the middle of the night with her. I told him, "I got up for all the midnight nursing and diaper changes. You can get up to take the dog out." He claims he got up for 80% of those nightly feedings and changes. I don't remember him nursing! Oh....I see. He woke up. He didn't GET up.

Well, Zoey's whining. Again.

I will take her out once before I head to the bus stop for my baby, Riley.

Your new baby is absolutely adorable! Isn't it different having a girl this time around? I also saw the invites for Kim's baby shower, you did a wonderful job on them!

Here's a tip that worked for me. We used a puppy play yard and kennel. Minky would NOT go in that play yard. I don't know if that's normal but it made potty training her a lot easier. We kept it up about 6 weeks and still use the kennel occasionally 'cause I don't trust her to be alone just yet.

Anyway, you KNOW how I feel about black & white animals!! lol
