When people think I’m a quiet/sweet/innocent person
I am actually handling my lack of sleep very well. It helps of course to know what to expect, as I went through this this Kalea. Although There are definite times throughout the days that I feel like it should be dark out…or that I am in a dream state but those pass quickly.
Again, coffee is surely the miracle drug. Well, it is really caffeine that is the hero but….in my case it comes in the form of coffee.
At eight weeks, Rowan is already 9.01 lbs. That is one pound heavier than Kalea was at his age…and her adult weight is 33lbs. Which is perfect of course for our small house so I am hoping he also will be the same…maybe a little more. Least he will be under 75lbs. That is the goal.
Kalea has gotten way better at playing with him than she was the first full day of house time.
Puppies are so funny. You forget that they really are just babies who fall over when scratching themselves, miscalculate jumps, are scared of going down stairs by themselves…and that they just topple over to sleep right in the middle of play. They also have Puppy breath!! Only there for their first months. His fur is also super soft- way softer than Kalea’s was. Also, not as thick. When we picked up Kalea, the breeder told us she had bathed her two hours previously but her undercoat was still damp.
I guess I have to maintain this sleep schedule for the next three weeks before his little bladder will be able to hold more….Ha, as I am writing this, I have gotten up four different times to run around with the two dogs which ultimately ended with Rowan falling asleep in my arms. He is quite a cuddly one, which makes me very happy. All dogs are asleep around me now.
Time for my cup of coffee. Or a nap. I don’t know which.
It is called…
The Twilight Zone.
In which one wakes up every two to three hours through out the night to let an eight week old puppy outside to do his “business”.
I am sure naps are in my future.
Thank goodness for coffee.
