I was out of the house this morning at 8:00 and probably won't be back till 5:00 tonight, what damage will be done?
Some things have totally changed with the way I'm handling Mae from Tim, but my explicit babysitting directions are still evident and so is the mindless nodding of heads of those I'm leaving in charge. I think there should be classes on training human family members. I know Mae won't know that I'm even gone but as my daughter ,who's staying home said, "Tim will just sleep the whole time."
So those of you fellow new puppy parents, I have some questions for you. I'm trying so hard to remember when Tim was a puppy for comparison but it seems like ages ago.
- Does your puppy stay occupied playing with toys for long stretches of time? I mean playing by themselves on a blanket and just chewing, shaking and squeaking away? Mae seems very independent and will play by herself a lot more so then I remember Timmy ever doing.
- Does your pup not mind being in the expen even when you are in the same room? I seem to put Mae in her pen a lot more hen I did with Tim. She is totally content in her pen just watching the world go by, Tim would have been screaming and crying.
- Does your puppy only poop in one spot outside? I did not do this intentionally but Mae has two spots she uses for poops which is actually very convenient I must say. I don't think Tim has a preference for location as much as substrate.
- Does your pup ever stop?
The only time Mae is not in motion is when she's sleeping, peeing, pooping or eating, she's a wild thing. She makes Timmy look like a slug even when he was a puppy. Sometimes I need to put her in the pen just to slow down.
I know every puppy is different I am just getting such a kick out of Mae and I agree with the saying that opposites attract. Sorry such a long post I'm sitting in my car waiting for my daughter to finish her faculty meeting then it's off to National Portfolio Day for college.
