TRYIN' MAKE HIS WAY HOME
My new foster kids have been doing very well! I was initially quite resistant about taking on puppies since I had such a hard time with Brody when he was growing up, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm having fun with these little girls!
Yes, I'm slightly sleep deprived... and I do probably spend a good 2 hours of day cleaning up after them - but those cute faces are totally worth the work!
My boys as nearly excited about the new additions as everyone else is, however. Brody still can't quite figure out what to do with them. It's like he gets frustrated when they don't play with him... so he yaps that annoying yap of his as if they'll play with him if he does it over and over again. For a clumsy boy who is really still a puppy himself, though, I'd say that he's doing pretty well with them. Jackson is portraying the "grumpy old man" side of himself these days. They look weird. They are tiny. And they want to touch him. He wants little to nothing to do with them and retreats to the bedroom as quickly as he can when the pups are out. I saw a glimmer of hope today, however, that he might warm up to them eventually.
Apart from being tired, going through mass amounts of paper towels and Wee Wee Pads, and the smelliness that puppies come with, I'd say that it's going very well. I know it doesn't sound glamorous, but I'm having fun!
