Before I introduce everyone to our new puppy, I just want to say how proud I am to be a St. Louisan! Woooooo Cardinals are the World Series Champs!! I was so excited Friday night – I was just a ball of joy. After being down so many games in August and beating the best teams in the MLB, we did it! Still so excited!!
Now for the stuff every non-Cards fan cares about: puppy!
We picked her up Saturday from the shelter and we fell in love at first sight. Her face is just the cutest thing we’ve ever seen. I took this picture right when we got her and we were trying to put her collar on:
We had to drive about an hour and a half to the shelter and we were both worried about the car ride home, but she slept the entire time. Sound asleep! It was great. 🙂
We took her to PetSmart to get some goodies and everyone stopped to pet her. She loved the attention. I put some more pictures up on my Facebook page!
Being a new dog-parent is hard. We feel like we have to watch her at all times because she isn’t potty-trained yet (any good tips?) and putting her in her crate at night is absolutely heart-breaking. The first couple nights were horrible – she cried for about 5 minutes, but it felt like hours. Last night she whined for about 30 seconds and slept soundly the entire night. Let’s pray this keeps up.
Any tips, dog parents? We’ll take all that we can get!
