Meet Stella. This is the new addition to our family. She is an 8 week old Labradoodle. Emily and I have been wanting a second dog for a while, and the timing is right for us. I will be honest, for me personally it means so much. A puppy in its earliest stages is really like a baby, and so a large void from Harrison is being filled slightly by our new dog.
Emily and I left for Creedmor, NC yesterday morning, which is where the breeder Recia was located. I thought we were only going for a puppy, but I also got something else on the trip…..a speeding ticket! DOH!
This is my first ever speeding ticket, and I didn’t even try to fight it. Definitely was speeding, so no reason to make an excuse
Anyways, not going to let that get me down…here are some more pictures of our newest puppy!
^On the way home. For anyone who knows our other dog Diesel, I think they are going to fit right in.
^Taking a nap in her crate. Bunny is the toy she is familiar with, it has the scent of her mother.
^Feeding time! She is like her dad in this area. I don’t waste time, and neither does she!
^Here is our current set up. We have cordoned off a “den” area for her. This is to help with housebreaking her. Her crate door stays open, and she has a little play area (which she loves to play with Diesel’s toys. He is kinda having a hard time adjusting to not being the only child). We had a sleepover last night in our living room. I slept right next to Stella, as we continue to get her used to her crate, and understanding its not a punishment, but a “safe” place. I was up at Midnight, 2am, 4am, and Emily took 6am to let her out. She has done great so far with peeing, although today we have had two incidents.
I hope you are having a great Sunday. Relish the little things in life. Please continue to pray for Nora and Adalyn. If you havent checked out their stories yet, links are below. I am also linking our breeder as well. She is excellent to work with, really knows her stuff.
