Hey guys, guess what… my puppy is still alive!!!! *pats self on back*
I honestly can’t believe where the past 3 weeks have gone! Today is the first time I’ve actually managed to sit down - (LOL that’s a lie) - and focus on my blog again.
They never teach you the important things in school such as: “how to look after a puppy” or “how to manage your life and avoid becoming an anti-social, sobbing mess”
I'm completely in love/obsessed with my new little man - but my god it's been hard work. I was fully prepared for all the physical challenges, but mentally, I'm exhausted.
I guess it's like having a child... only cuter and much furrier.
All jokes aside, he is doing AMAZINGLY well. His confidence has already come on leaps and bounds (literally) - and the speed of his toilet training has been incredible!
He has settled into my life perfectly and brings a smile to my face everyday. I’m not going to lie, there have been some tough moments - especially in this last week when man-flu hit me hard! But I feel like I’m getting into more of a routine now and I couldn’t be happier.
In order to help me be as independent with Ralph as possible, I’ve bought some new doggy gadgets to try and make life that little bit easier!
One of my favourite items that helps me out A LOT, is this “no bend bowl”. The light-weight pole on this product allows me to pick up his bowls and refill his food and water - without straining my back.
This is important for me as I want Ralph to primarily attach to me. Food is important to dogs - so I want to be able to do as much for him myself as possible.
Another cool gadget I bought is this bad-ass poop scoop! It’s come as no surprise that my dog is literally ‘full of shit’ - what can I say… he’s definitely a Lannon.
I’m so excited to see how he develops over the next few months. If only you could hear the conversations we have between us... Dr Doolittle would be proud.
