Readers, I have been a terrible blogger. To say our lives have been disrupted would be a gross understatement. You see, on our last camping trip to the coast, we decided to get a puppy. It all started with going to a petting zoo in Newport, where we got to cuddle lots of sweet animals. Then over dinner, Match told me he was finally ready for another dog.
I had been researching puppies for a long time, and I wanted a hypoallergenic dog this time because of our allergies. I wanted to make sure we did it right this time, because this would be our first dog as a family. Monkey was my pup, and he didn’t always listen to Match because of that. I also did a lot of things wrong with him because I was young when I got him.
So, we decided on a sheepadoodle, a cross between an Old English Sheepdog and a Standard Poodle, and we figured it would take awhile to get one, because they’re pretty popular. As luck would have it, we found a litter that was ready to come home that very next week, and they weren’t all spoken for. We chose this little munchkin, and we all fell in love.
Meet Loki, our little furbaby. Don’t let his adorableness fool you. As he’s grown more comfortable at our house, he’s also grown more mischievous, fully living up to his name. It’s all normal puppyiness, and his core personality seems to be a cuddly little lovebug who prefers to be held. At all times. Even when mommy is in the bathroom.
This is our first time with such a young puppy, and readers it is like having a newborn. Sleepless nights and so much poo and pee! It’s exhausting. But at the end of the day, I’m so happy we got him. It’s been a couple weeks now, and we’re settling into a routine. He’s learning to like (tolerate) his crate, and he sleeps through the night! He has a lot of energy, but he’s a quick learner and eager to please. I love watching Piglet with him, and how much Loki loves him.
