Well, we have had the old girl for a few days now. It has been a few days since she has pooped in her crate. It has been a few days since I have had a good nights rest.
She still barks through most of the night, but yesterday she went to the vet. We got some tranquilizers. Not is blow dart form. Bet I could have some fun with those when I teach kids church. They seem to zonk her for half of the night. She pees almost every time she is in her crate. I am starting to realize just how little work cats are. You just potty train then, tell them not to scratch every thing in the house and you are done.
If I tell people what the dog is putting me through they say, "She's just preparing you for parenthood."
Kids, let me tell you this now. I know your parents probably tell you this every time you ask for a puppy, but let me reassure you. Puppies are a lot of work and responsibility. We walk our dog nearly every hour. We get up at three in the morning to walk her so she won't poop in her crate. Tons of responsibility.
Part of the reason she went to the vet yesterday was because her sutures were coming undone and the cut on her belly where they did the neutering was gaping. Even worse, it was infected and they had to cut a lot of the flesh around the wound out and restitch it back up. So now she is groggy again. On top of that there is something wrong with her eye. We have to keep putting goop in it. She loves that.
I love this puppy, and I love sleep. I look forward to the day when I can enjoy both equally.
