Ahhhhhh! Today I went out to the garden and I was checking the peas and beans to see if anything had sprouted! The had! Just slightly, pushing their green baby plant selves through the loose dirt. In fact, the garden is looking pretty good.
Call me happy!
I realized today that we have had Lili for a month.
And we have survived! Actually, she is doing really well. She was not too people or dog friendly when she arrived. Coming from a litter of ten puppies, she was always fighting for food, toys, and attention. She had to understand that the dackels come first, and she is the low pupper on the totem pole.
Now a month later, Lili eats from her own dish, chews her own bones and doesn’t try to steal the dackel’s bones. She also sleeps well at night, is 99% house broken and loves to curl up on our old sofa. I haven’t gotten a new one since 1996 because of the dogs. Guess it will be a while longer.
Lili goes on Tuesday for her next shots. I am interested to see how much she weighs and what the Vet thinks of our baby girl! School starts on Tuesday night.
Yes, we’ve made it through that first tough puppy month!
