Late Night Thoughts – Dog Mom

Well I’ve checked off another bucket list to do. 2018 is the year I will be entering motherhood (well dog mom hood.) This is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. My mom and I adopted an 8 month old Chihuahua (below photos) when I was in high school. Of course since I was 16 and all over the place, Teddy bonded with my mom and is now my mom’s dog. As I’ve been growing up, I’ve been missing having a dog around as my side kick. For the last year and a half I have been researching breeds that would fit in with my lifestyle (plus techniques for working dog moms and training schedules.)  Well over the weekend my friend told me she has free jack russell terrier mix pups and I decided it was time to pull the trigger.  On January 14th I brought home the little babes (top photo.) It’s insane how much I already love her, and the responsibility of raising her.

A lot of my friends are getting married, having babies, buying homes, and I’m just over here getting my first solo puppy! It’s a crazy step into adulthood for me. I just finished traveling the world and now I’m signing up for a 15 year commitment. This little pup will probably first hand witness me achieve those milestones too. I promise to keep you guys updated on Arya. In the meantime, comment your puppy advice below!
