Olive.

Olive finally came on Wednesday and she is so cute that I may have a heart attack.  The breeder sent her early to avoid some nasty cold temperatures up in MN, so my whole plan of spending the first few days with her after she comes on Friday was scrapped.  Last two nights were brutal with her crying and barking and me alternatively trying to ignore her and trying to calm her down.  Needless to say things like sleep or working out have become fairly non-existent for me, so hopefully I can restore some sense of routine as we figure out hers.  Every puppy book and website I read before she came suddenly sounds very theoretical.  This is going to be interesting.

She is adorable! Having to get up 20 times a night is why they make them so cute. Don't worry, she is settle down in a few days, but will most likely have to be walked every three hours through the night for a month or so. At 4.5 months Homer can finally go from 10:30pm to 5am without having to go for a walk or having an accident. Yes the first three months are constant going for walks at all hours, the next two throwing out everything they have peed and chewed on. But is is so much fun. She looks about 8-9 weeks old, is she that young here? If you are crate training, hang in there, it is tough but so worth it.
