Fire Me Now! Please!

So….I was being a good puppy Mom and Wife when I told Tim on Saturday “I’ll take Sunday morning!”  Since he’d taken puppy duty on Saturday a.m. and Motzy had gotten up at 5.  After all, we should take turns shouldn’t we?

Yeah, well…I hear Motzy at 3 a.m.

He’s never gotten up before 5 since we got him!


Ok, fine – out we go and he does his duty.  We come back in and I lie on the couch while he runs around the living room playing with his toys and by 3:30 he’s lying down to sleep.

{insert fist pump}

I scoot him into his kennel and head back to bed.

The next wakeup call was at 6:07.

Out we go again, duties done, back in, and on the couch I go…and off goes Motzy to play with his toys.  At this point I’m exhausted.  Needless to say I zonked out.  Literally. I finally wake up all of a sudden at 7:20 as he decides to join me on the couch.  I look around (after escaping puppy licks that have now wiped my face clean) and find what you see in the picture behind one of our chairs.

Instant thought…”Huh…I’m so fired from this puppy watch duty”.


Then it occurred to me that this may not be such a bad thing!

I clean up his mess and put him in his kennel (as he was falling back to sleep) and sneak back to bed.  I barely get laid back down and  he starts whining and barking again.


All I can think is, “I must really love this dog” and head back out where I take him out of his kennel and lay back down on the couch.

What happens next?

I’m sure you can see it coming…

Motzy joined me and fell asleep on the end of the couch.

I guess he loves me too.



Have a great Sunday everyone!

ps…I promise I will write about subjects other than my dog!

Drumroll Please!

Conversation, discussions and finally a plea brought us all to the big decision…

We have a puppy!

We’d like you to meet Castle, our new 9 week old English Setter.

His former owners were able to place all of his brothers and sisters, but he was the last of the litter.  They moved into a new place and could only keep two dogs (they already had his Mom and an English Bulldog).  So he had to go and go quickly.


They placed the Facebook ad…I happened to be looking through the ads…and the stars aligned and WHALAA! Here we are with a sweet little puppy.


Here he is sleeping on Gabi’s lap/hand on the way home.

Now I have a companion for when Tim and Gabi head back to school and all their sports.  And Castle (formerly known as Bruiser) has a new home where he can play, sleep, bark, and snuggle.  Along with…eat, drink, pee, poop, nap, eat, drink, pee, poop, nap…and on and on…

We’ve already had a few adventures including a first morning of multiple accidents in the house and a Gabi saying “Stupid Dog!”  To which Timothy responded “You weren’t very smart either when you were 9 weeks old”.  I’m sure we’ll have plenty more adventures…

Trust me…I’ll keep you posted.

Tomorrow the babies are coming over…now that should be fun!

Have a good evening all!  May you be as blessed as we are!
