Apologies for the blog-silience this week! I’ve been quite busy, and here are a few hints as to why:
If you guessed puppy, you’re right! But not our own puppy – Chris and I watched my friend Coelle’s dog, Zoey, for a few days.
And with that, I think I’m going to cross off #22 and 43 on my 101 in 1001 list – get a dog, and housebreak the dog. I know it’s a stretch to say that I “got a dog” and that I housebroke her on my own, but I’ve decided that this task will fulfill those two items on the list because I realized there’s no way I could keep up with everything else that’s going on in my life if I actually did get a dog in the next couple of years. It’s a full-time job! We had Zoey for about 72 hours, I pretty much didn’t do anything else that wasn’t Zoey-related. I do think we housebroke her for our house though – she only had two minor accidents the first day, and every time after that if we didn’t already anticipate her needing to go out, she walked down the hall and sat by the stairs. She’s such a good girl, and we had a lot of fun having her around! Maybe we’ll eventually think about getting an older dog, but for now that’s a check and check on those two items.
