What did I get myself into?

Don't get me wrong, I really do love Paisley but I didn't expect her to be SO wild anytime she is awake. When she is asleep or about to be asleep she is so sweet, wanting to snuggle and give kisses, but when she is hyper...(me shaking my head)...she is basically insane. Travis gets up and takes her out at about 630 and I thought it would be nice of me (since she did sleep all night and didnt make a sound) to get up and sit in the den with her, on second thought, I will just take my pillow in there and maybe she will enjoy snuggling with me for a while until I have to get up at 730....WRONG. Instead, as soon as I lay down she pounces on me, is trying to rip my hair out of my head, and is trying to bite my nose off, toys? no, she has plenty but they are not amusing, my blanket however is something she would love to pull off of me and then drag around the house while I chase her. Then she decides that she wants to explore under the couch. There is not anything under there so I guess it's no big deal...then she comes out with a mouth full of stuffing, I try to keep her from going back under the couch. Now she thinks its a game and is biting the crap out of my hand for pushing her away from the couch, all while wagging her tail incessantly thinking this is the funnest game she has ever played. Then I am trying to get ready for work. I have to get in the shower so I shut her in there with me, guess who ended up in the shower too?? afterwards she is dragging the bath mats out of the bathroom, chewing on my hairdryer cord, and catching really gross dust bunnies from under the bed. gggrrr Im just trying not to be late for work and cope with the fact that I am already mad that I had to get up an hour early now I can't even enjoy getting ready! When it's time to leave, I grab her toys and a treat and put her in her kennel...she cries and I can hear her until I get in the car :( It's so hard to leave her knowing she doesnt want to stay in her kennel. I don't know how you Mom's do it!! BUT of course when I come home she kisses me and is so excited to see me it makes it all worth it, even the scars, the bald spots, dark circles from lack of sleep, and stuffingless couch :) How could you not love this face?


  1. Oh my dear sweet Libilibis! Walks, Walks, Walks!! Get her to a dog park where its totally fenced in and let her run her legs off!! We went thru every bit of this with Gretchen and she was a year and a half old. You gotta burn off her energy. Think of it this way, she's like the Stars and Bees...she recharges when she rests and she's gonna rest all day while you're gone and at night. I'm telling ya, we have got to get together for puppy play dates. Paisley would be a perfect playmate for Gretchen. And by the way, all this will about 2 years. :)

  2. 2 years!! yikes! i try to take her outside and she plops down beside me, or tries to eat our flowers :)

  3. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not even sure what to say to that execpt thank God for that big back yard you have sounds like your going to need it. :-)
