have been really hard.
i knew that owning a puppy would be a lot of work but i didnt realize just how much of a toll it would have on me.
i love this little guy so much and i think the thing that i have been worried about the most is if i am going to raise him correctly.
the first few nights he cried so much in the night and it broke my heart. i thought how am i ever going to be able to let him cry and cry just so that he learns we can't always pick him up?
last night one of his tias gave him her old teddy bear. we put it in his bed at night so that he felt like he was with somebody. we also put in one of the t-shirts we had been wearing all day so that he was smelling us.
worked like a charm. well, a charm that that helped him wake up only half as many times. but it sure is a start.
this whole "fur-mama" stuff is hard work. keeping up with his eating schedule, sleep schedule, going to the bathroom schedule is not leaving me much time for the me-to-do-my-work schedule!!
obviously being stressed about this little guy will come with the territory for the first few weeks. but having him around has been so so worth it so far. i can't get over how much i adore him and how i want the absolute best for him.
also, i know my last three posts have been about my new little guy but its probably going to be like that for a while.
sorry i'm not sorry ;)
