This Puppy is Driving Me Crazy!


the crazy puppyYes, I am aware that I haven’t blogged in a while. And here’s why… we got a puppy.

My husband decided that we needed one. We needed a puppy like we need a burglar, a teething toddler, and anything else that relates to the many fun habits that a dog has.

Just writing that first sentence took 10 minutes because I had to fight her off every little thing in the house.


I’m kinda over this stage though.

The pup is getting into everything right now. And taking her out to go potty in this -15°F weather is not really working for me right now lol.

She eats her own poop. I put hot sauce on it all so that she wouldn’t eat it. It worked for a while, until she started eating the neighbor dog’s poop! I can’t win.

In the meantime, I think I may need a tall glass of wine. That seems like it would get me through the puppy stage.

PS- I really do love my puppy 🙂

    I just saw a story about the real housewives of MN on kstp and thought I would come and check it out. I am new to your site – so I can’t tell if you are trying to be funny, or if you are serious about the way you are talking about your new puppy. I truly hope you are joking, as it is not fair to your new puppy if you are annoyed by it and did not want it (especially if you are the majority care taker). Your puppy deserves to be in a home where all family members will adore him/her – Sure hope you do and were just venting…………….

      This was definitely a vent slash humor post. My pup is one of my favorite things! I think everyone can relate to the puppy stage she’s in, so I chose to write about it 🙂

        Glad to hear it! I agree everyone can relate – and watch out – sometimes that poop eating thing continues past the puppy stages – especially here in MN when they are poopsicles! 

    ahhh – lol, we have a new puppy too, trust me – it gets better, but they can be sooo naughty!! I’m just glad we’re past the potty training stage, ugh.

    The pet stores carry a supplement to discourage them from eating poop. But I think you just need to be diligent about pulling him away from it and he will probably out grow it in the warmer temps. No one loves the puppy stage except for the cuteness factor. But it’s all worth it when they learn your routines and their unconditional love is priceless!!
