That is literally all I've been up to, with the exception of a few trips out with Bean in my handbag. Did you know that puppies need 16 to 18 hours of sleep everyday? And double the number of trips outside! Or that their bladders are the last thing to develop? It hasn't been easy being a full time puppy butler. It's a lot like having a baby in the house. And those late night/early morning potty breaks can be excruciating and involve me following her ass around with a flashlight. But she's learned her name and that makes it all worth it!
She's got an appointment to get her second set of shots next week and then a week after that she can go out into the real world. I can't wait to get outside and go to the park (or anywhere for that matter). But by that time I'll be starting work! Yikes! My life, and therefore blog, will get more interesting in the very near future! I promise! But for the time being I'm pretty much stuck in the house. Paul's away in Newcastle running a show for a few days, so I have no back up. But soon things will change and to be honest it can't happen soon enough. I can feel the cabin fever coming on, I've been chatting to the dog a lot and believe she can understand me, I've been stealing flowers from the neighbors yard and rearranging the furniture nearly everyday. Must...get...out...
