Hey y’all! I hope all of you are having a great day so far. It is another scorcher here and I am sweating my southern butt off. It is one of those that you can’t walk to the mailbox without getting really sweaty… at least that’s what my dad and I say! I am in a straight work phase right now and back to my trying to get as much done as possible because I have things piling up that need to get done or that I want to get done.
If you follow me on social media you know that we have a new member to our family and it isn’t a baby… okay well a human baby. It’s a puppy and his name is Blue! He is a Siberian Husky and at this point is 11 weeks old. I am going to give y’all more information about him but I thought I would actually put together a vlog so you can see how fun and funny he is and full of energy. You can check that out right down below.
So like I said in the video, Blue is actually not mine, I am more of an Aunt. Blue belongs to my sister and her boyfriend, Patrick, who are both living with me now. Patrick was the one that found Blue and he is actually a Craigslist puppy. We drove to get him one day all the way to Spartanburg, South Carolina, and if you are wondering, that is not a short drive. All together there were about 5-7 other puppies in the litter and amazingly they had been bought and had homes. When we picked him up he was covered in dirt because he lived outside. Bad day for Hailey to wear a white shirt and have him sit on her lap on the way home.
Having him so far has been a learning experience and a good thing and we have learned a ton about him as well. He is already doing really well on his leash and going for walks outside. Every time we take him out, we get stopped at least 5 times for people that want to pet him because, I mean come on, just look at him! One thing that we are struggling with and this is the downside of having a puppy in an apartment, is the house-breaking and going to the bathroom outside instead of inside. That is our continuous battle right now but it is getting better.
So far Blue is great in the car and on car rides, he is great when we give him baths, and he is really great when we take him to the vet. Which honestly shocks the crap out of me because I have only incurred a few dogs let alone puppies that are like that. He has for sure been a lot of work and we knew that was going to happen, but he is great to have around and a lot of fun to watch when he gets really wound up and playful! We have a few nicknames for him so far like Blue Boy, Mr.Smushy Face, Smushy, and a couple others.
It is so fun to get to see all his firsts, especially his first bark (which scared the crap out of him, still does), his first howl, him going up flights of stairs by himself, his first hiccups (also scared him), and many other firsts. Y’all will probably see Blue in a bunch of other stuff along the way because he is around now. I hope y’all enjoyed the vlog and got to see a little bit of his personality and how he acts.
As always thank y’all for stopping by and reading and watching. I will see y’all back here next time.
