A warning to all prospective puppy owners:
When I thought about getting a puppy everyone warned me about the sleepless nights I would have when my small-bladdered puppy needed to go out in the middle of the night. I thought, "hey that's going to suck, but it'll be ok".
Well I lucked out and ended up with a puppy that was a pro at holding his bladder all night (most of the time, but even when he wet his bed, he still didn't wake me up). On weekdays he usually sleeps until he hears my alarm clock go off, or sometimes a few minutes before. No big deal. The one thing I wasn't prepared for that no one told me: you will never get to sleep in on the weekend again.
Theo let me "sleep in" until 7:30am both days this weekend. Before Theo I would usually sleep in until noon at least. It's when I would "catch up" on my sleep. Now I get no catchup. It's Monday morning and I'm barely functioning because I'm so darn tired.
My warning to prospective puppy owners is make sure you're prepared to never get to sleep in late again (or at least until puppy is house trained). My advice is to take lots of afternoon naps when you can squeeze them in.
St. Patty's Day Feast - I can't believe how long it's taken me to blog about the food I made during the week of St. Patty's Day! I made such good things that week and such good...
