Meet King. Our little dark brown bundle of mischievous cuteness. Yes, we officially have a puppy and everyone is head of heels in love with the little rascal. We’ve had him for about a week and a half and we’re still getting adjusted to the little guy living indoors with us. But as you can see, he has adjusted well to indoor living.
As for me, I’m getting used to getting up in the middle of the night to take him out or rub his whining away. He is beyond spoiled and is more like an infant than I imagined. I somewhat had an idea of how much attention and care a puppy would require, but I didn’t know he’d want to be held and cuddled with like a baby. LOL! It’s cute nonetheless.
Having King around makes me realize just how much my patience is increasing. And it’s definitely making me get a very early start to my day. And by early start, I mean waking up and taking him out to relieve himself and walk around the block. Consequently, our morning cardio works wonders for my sciatica. There is pain every now and then, but it isn’t paralyzing as it was before. And not only does it help with my sciatica, but it also gives me much more energy than I usually have in the mornings thus preparing me properly to take on the day.
Until now, I could never understand the attachment that people would have with their dogs. For me, there’s just something about someone being happy and appreciative for what you do for them, even if it’s something as simple as taking them outdoors or down the street. Or picking them up so they can lay beside you and watch television.
Go ahead, label me a paw lover. I am over the moon. And while I am kinda new to this since it’s been almost a 14-year pet hiatus, I am welcoming all suggestions and advice in the comments. Especially on the whole potty training ordeal. We’re getting there though. Slowly, but surely.
