It seems rather odd that I'd start this blog as one of my beginning posts rather than filling in the blanks on other things but, oh well, the world has not crumbled yet from a jumbled storyline.
And then there were three.
My other half and I very recently added a puppy to our mix. She's a precious little labsky, born on July 5, 2014. Fun Fact: She was born on our wedding day. We took that as a sign of fate and went for it. Her name is Buhle Alexandria Suikerbossie Venter.
It's a mouthful but we call her Buhle (boo-lay) for short. It's a Xhosa name for beauty and Suikerbossie is Afrikaans for sugarbush, an endearing term like honey or sweetie.
The first day we had her she was extremely mellow. By 3 am, she was a completely different dog. She pulled a full Jekyll and Hyde and became a monster, a cute monster.
Having a puppy is like a baby. There are tons of sleepless nights and they pee and poo everywhere. We have been crate training her and it has not been fun. She cries for hours and hours. If anyone has any tips, please send me your knowledge.
Then there are those moments, when your husband tells you when you come home from work, "She won't sleep and hasn't slept for hours," and in that moment she snuggles up next to you and falls asleep. Precious. I'm totally in love with her.
This spunky, stubborn girl is going to be trouble. I knew it the moment I looked into her baby blue-eyes.
