Any two pup tips out there? All ears over here!
Big news around here! Garrett and I got a second puppy. We’re definitely still in an adjustment period over here so I don’t have too much to say other than “hi! we’re crazy and have two dogs now.”
We’ve been talking about a second dog for over a year now. Now that we’re sort of settled in Connecticut and Teddy is completely trained, we thought we’d start looking. Originally we planned to get a second toy poodle (like Teddy) and ended up finding a perfect maltipoo that we couldn’t stop thinking about.
I love having dogs. Never thought I’d ever be a dog person, but I am a full-fledged convert now. That said, I’m not totally in love with training puppies. Thank goodness they’re cute because sheesh they can be exhausting and frustrating.
Even though I’ve already gone through the puppy stage with Teddy, it still feels just as hard this time around. I feel like I don’t have enough hands– or rolls of paper towels.
The crazy part is how fast you can fall in love with a little guy. Even after cleaning up puppy throw up and sprinting outside over and over again for potty training, I get a little glimpse of the fluffball and just melt.
Teddy is… cautious around Hamilton. I think he isn’t sure if this is for real or not. He’s been understandably needy (extra snuggles and holding for him!) but they also have started playing together. I actually thought I was going to lose my mind yesterday as they chased each other all over the apartment. (But also, I loved it.) I’m excited to see the friendship form.
