I think most people know by now, but in case you don’t SURPRISE, WE GOT A PUPPY!!! I don’t often write about life updates, but she’s too cute to not share!
We have been talking about getting a puppy for literally years, but always questioned if it was the right time. After reading about the benefits of having a dog, we decided “to hell” with waiting for the perfect time and took the plunge (because honestly, will there ever be a perfect time to invite a destructive 10lb ball of fur into your home permanently?). We both have always adopted cats and dogs so we decided to switch it up and get a purebred puppy.
We found our girl on Craigslist (sketchy sketchy) and we were so nervous about the arrangement that we didn’t open any of the puppy supplies we had purchased until she was in our hands! In true MOTM fashion, we took a short road trip out to Hamilton, Alabama to pick up our sweet girl, Peach.
Peach is a labrador retriever - maybe chocolate, maybe black - that’s TBD - and we got her when she was just under 9 weeks old. We haven’t weighed her yet but she seems a LOT heavier than when we got her 12 days ago. She did well in the car, so hopefully that means we can take her on road trips! Her mama was 55 lbs and her papa was 70 lbs, so I don’t foresee a lot of air travel in her future.
She is the sweetest little puppy, and we are so in love with her! She loves to play, and sleeps incredibly hard. She’s typically either bouncing off the walls, or knocked out. Rarely in between. She chews on EVERYTHING - shoes, feet, hands, furniture. Literally everything. We’re working on that. Right now her little teeth can’t inflict too much pain or damage but that will all change very soon. She HATES when we are gone and tries to destroy everything around her. Also TBD: how she will do when we travel.
We’re so excited for this new chapter in our life, and can’t wait to share our adventures with you!
