sleep deprived

i bought a puppy!!

it was planned, yet spontaneous. she's from the humane society and she's a shepherd/border collie mix. right now she's 8 weeks 5 pounds, but that will be changing rapidly! i'm hoping she doesn't get too gigantic, but 50-60 pounds is likely. i wasn't planning on getting a bigger dog (although all my family dogs have been big, and i tend to like them better than smaller dogs). i was thinking smaller for apartment renting purposes in the future...

but i'm positive having a great dog will outweigh the apartment finding woes. she doesn't have an official name yet (strange because i always name animals immediately, wild animals, squirrels, strays... and i'm having trouble with picking the right one for her)

she's a baby baby so sleeping the past few nights has been short and filled with puppy whines. i'm pretty ruff this morning, it's almost like i haven't slept at all or was out on the town hittin' it hard, lol.

my exercise routine was a little off because of the little pup, but i'm working on a new schedule... and maybe i'll have a new jogging buddy!

right now i'm drinking some yummy yogi chai redbush tea with a bit o' cream, i highly suggest it!


  1. AHHHH!!!! YAY!!!! Oh how I miss the puppy days :) My baby Kaiah is so great now. I am excited to read all about your bonding experiences over the next few months!

    Post a pic soon so I can oooo and ahhhhh and wish for another puppy :)

  2. OMG!!! Congrats!! :)

    I think Yogi Chai Redbush is an excellent name. LOL ;-)

    I name everything, so don't ask me, you'd get a looong list! :-)

    Congrats, and yes... pictures please!

  3. I am so jealous! I have been wanting to get a puppy for months now, but my husband keeps saying no. The cat voted no too darn it.

    I am impatiently waiting for puppy pictures!

  4. Aw! That's a cute dog right there. I like biggish dogs as well. You can play around with them a bit more, I think. I'm not good at girlie names, but I'm sure you'll come up with a good one!

  5. That is one cute puppy! What a lovely reason to be slightly sleep deprived! I'm sure she will add to your exercise routine enormously -- not just jogging/walking with the dog, but all the general running around after her!

    I want one !!!!!

  6. OMG, FACE.


  7. Again, so jealous! She looks like a little racoon with those brown circles around her eyes. Very cute!
