Yes, I'm talking about Lucy. David tried hard to talk me into getting an older dog but I was insistent on getting a puppy.
I made a terrible mistake! If I had it to do over, I'd get a one year old dog without thinking twice. Having a puppy is extremely overrated.
Last week Lucy went to the vet for an overnighter so she could get spayed. I did miss her but it was also nice having a break. Now she's back and wearing me out again. It's amazing how many bad things she can do in the space of five minutes.
In the past, I bought myself a little bit of sanity by leashing her to the dining room table. But now she's too big and strong. She's dragging the table across the room.
I also enjoyed sending her outside to play for a while. But she's been getting in trouble out there, too. She's getting very close to the cable line! So I'm not leaving her outside as much.
That only leaves the kennel but I can't leave her in there all the time! Can I? Of course I can't.
I know puppyhood won't last forever. I just hope I survive!
