It’s a known fact that neither Karen nor I have ever had a puppy. We have always loved our more “lifestyle” dogs. You know, the couch potatoes.
When we got the call that the little girl was available, fear penetrated my soul, but the call of the wild was stronger. We loved the idea of experiencing a puppy.
Zippy is an amazing baby sitter. He is so patient with them now. It took a couple of days of watching them closely, but he is so good at wearing them out just even a little bit.
It’s true, Glory teases Zip almost unmercifully at times. See that couch? Before we knew we were going to have babies, we invested in a custom leather couch.
We try to keep it covered for mild protection. I’m not really sure how successful we are now that the puppies have arrived.
The entire living room has been converted into a romper room as they play leap frog from cushion to cushion and take flying leaps onto and off of the couch.
This is what much of our day looks like now. Always having adult dogs in the house is so different.
The two younguns’ squabble like this all of the time. And every thing they say about those baby teeth being sharp is so, so true.
As Sage hung off of the arm of the couch for the longest time, Zip and Glory got in a few licks of their own.
Yes, this is our new life. Laughter and fun and giggles and not much quiet time.
