Day 188 - Running on Empty
Saturday, October 05, 2013
My youngest son has been keeping the puppy in his room at nights but then he told me that the puppy cries and barks during the night and he hasn't been getting much sleep. I did not know that...we sleep with the fan on and our doors closed.
Last night, I took the puppy in our bedroom and he was zonked out! Unfortunately I was anticipating his cries and barks. My husband fell asleep at the computer downstairs but when he woke up and came into the bedroom, the puppy woke up. He quickly settled down but whimpered a little bit.
My husband had to get up at 3:30 am which woke puppy up again...but he fell back to sleep. Hubby left for work at 5:30 am and puppy was up, wide awake, so my day began.
I think I had about 3 hours of dozing...I am exhausted!
Tonight after work, it was total puppy play time! For hours we played and went outside every hour to pee. He still peed several times in the house, grrrr, but that is to be expected for a baby.
He finally zonked out at 10 pm and I am putting his cage in the living room. My two sons are gone for the weekend, one in Iowa and the other camping with his best friend's family.
I hope I can get some good zzzzzzz...... But I usually wake up during the night to pee...all that water to drink each and every day!!! My Goodness! I will check up on puppy during my nocturnal adventures to the bathroom.
Good night, sweet dreams!
