My husband pleaded with me for years to get a dog and as many of you will know from the photos you've seen on my blog that ten months ago I finally relented and we got Ravyn, our black lab. Now that I've turned 40 I think my hormones must be up the spout because all of a sudden I wanted another dog as a play mate for her.
I've always loved German Shepherds and was looking for a mix with that breed in it. What can I tell you . . . I just fell in love with this little guy the moment I saw him and Joey came home with us this Saturday.
It's been an interesting couple of days trying to introduce a tiny 9 week old pup to a 10 month old (75lb) black lab but we're getting there. My husband was amazed when he came home yesterday at the transformation in just 24 hours.
Somewhere along the line I forgot about the lack of sleep, smelling like dog, the amount of attention they need, but that face . . . the puppy smell . . . well it makes the comatose state I find myself in and the black bags weighing heavy under my eyes all worth it.
Tomorrow . . . well that might be a different story.
