Benson

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

He is going on his first field trip - to the prosecutor's office. The staff will be down today and I am the only prosecutor in the office today.

And there are no court hearings.

So . . . he gets to go to the office for the first time!

ONWARD!!

Sleepy times

Monday, August 11, 2014

Having a puppy in the house make for a certain loss of sleep. Well, for the first few days, anyway.

We have successfully crate trained Benson. He loves his crate. The first night he pooped in it, but he has maintained a clean crate ever since then (two more nights).

He is walking with me for two miles a day, not on a leash yet. I will get there. He is still discovering the neighborhood and we walk at 5:30 am, so that is OK. He WILL get leash training very soon.

DD2 came over today to meet Benson. DD3 was "babysitting" him for the day while I was at work. He is not going to be an inside dog, but since we do not yet have a fenced area for him . . . someone needs to keep on top of his bodily elimination schedule, therefore the need for "eyes on" during the day.

But I think both DD2 and I will get a good night's sleep tonight.

WHEW!!

  


He is here!!

Monday, August 04, 2014

Benson will be here in no time at all!!

I am looking forward to wearing him out so that he sleeps well.

If not, well, I won't sleep!!

Count Down to Benson

Sunday, August 03, 2014

Yes. Benson. An eight-week-old cockapoo.

I will pick him up on Friday.

His stash of stuff is growing at our home. Crate, toys,food & water dishes. Clicker. More toys. Leash, harness and lead. Veterinarian appointment. And treats. Oh, and a couple of barriers.

I still need to get some dog food and a container for the dog food.

This will be my first dog in over 25 years.

I am getting excited!!

ONWARD!!
