The Puppy Arrives SOON!

Next week is monumental.

It’s the week that I give in to my children and husband and bring home the puppy that I promised them.

I’m kind of excited. Β I actually like furry little loveable creatures. Β A lot.

I just don’t like owning or training them. Β Or having them jump on me or lick me.

The puppy we’ve picked up is adorable, laid back, and sure to be trainable. Β And he’s not a licker.

He’d better not be a barker or sprayer, either.

I can’t wait to show him to you.

The best part is that I don’t have anything I’d change about him.

    That’s great you are getting a puppy! We love our dog who is older (6) and wonderful! She is very teachable, loves to eat, loves to walk and does not jump on us or lick us. She only barks a little, just enough to let us know she is a dog. I’m sure you’ll love you puppy very much!

    I remember getting our puppy who is now a 10yo distinguished gentleman dog (yeah, right!) He was so cute and small and timid…the first day. I slept on the floor with my hand in the crate so he’s stop crying. Within two days, he was a crazy, licking, jumping machine (and has never out grown it.) Beware! πŸ™‚

    We just got a couple new kittens. They are SO sweet and adorable but I am reminded of my days with newborns: they are needy, eat constantly, and don’t know their own boundaries yet πŸ™‚

    Good luck with the new puppy. I can foresee some adorable pictures in your future, probably a Wordless Wednesday or two

    We did everything right with our puppy – all the socialization and training. She’s smart, and energetic, and a serious a pain in the ass. You can’t train personality! But we love her anyway πŸ™‚

    I’m really looking forward to photos. I’m still surprised you gave in a opted for a dog. I think Scary Mommy did that a while ago, too. Sometimes you just cannot pass up those sweet puppy eyes. Just think, lots of good blog fodder!

    Plus, I think your kids are just at the perfect age for it, too! Enjoy!

    A new puppy, how fun!!! Enjoy. I want a dog so bad, but I’m afraid I’ll love it more than my kid. πŸ™‚

    Hubby and I have been thinking about getting a puppy for the kids for a while now, but we can’t agree on the breed. I hope you’ll share pics of your new arrival!

    just remember when he/she comes along there is a reason God makes puppies and babies SOO adorable.

    It’s so you don’t throw them out on the curb when it’s 2am and they won’t stop crying πŸ˜‰

    Oh and puppies are so sweet and puppy breath, you should reconsider the licking thing at least for a tiny bit. We are about to be on the hunt for yet another puppy Abby wants a wiener dog! I need another dog like I need another hole in my head!!

    Nothing you’d change about him… yet… lol.

    Hmmm, like barking, jumping up, shedding, drooling, chewing, pooping… ??? I hope he’s cute enough to make it all worthwhile. I hear it’s like having a newborn. Should fill the space left by kids that grow too fast though, everyone says so…

    good luck!

    I puppy raise hearing dogs. The current one, Taz barks, licks, nips, jumps and whines. I love him to bits. Most of the time. When he has a tantrum in the library I’m not too happy… wait a minute! That sounds just like a kid (minus the barking – usually). I guess of you can survive kids you can survive a puppy.

    I am so glad to read that Arthur is NOT a Cavalier! You are right, Cavaliers are truly beautiful and kind liltte dogs but they would NOT be a good dogs for Lizzie because of their awful health problems. What a relief! When I saw the pictures of Arthur(s), I got worried.
