Good morning happy Thursday! Today is my work Friday since I took tomorrow off. Monday is a holiday so HELLO 4 day weekend woohoo.

Today is this little ones first day at home without us. She is in her crate lets hope she isn't too sad all day. She has not spent much time in there because we are pushovers. Last night she slept on my bed lol.

Yesterday after work this little guy came over. He was not a happy camper for most of the time, very fussy. I think his teeth are really hurting him. We went for a walk around the block (it was still hot out) and he fell asleep and stayed asleep in the stroller for awhile. Then he kind of woke up but was fussing so I held him and ended up falling asleep with him on me on the couch for a bit. I woke up all sweaty lol.

He didn't want to eat much, still fussing, tried the bath tub that worked a tiny bit but not for long. Put his shoes on to let him run around and he mostly kept going to the car so we went for a ride around the club and listened to music. That finally got him happy for a bit. Then back at home he was fussing some more and I was like can we hook up the laptop to the TV? Trevor got it hooked up and I put a Toy Story movie on and he was finally happy. He loves Toy Story. It was 10:30ish when the movie was over and I took him home to a more rested mama and he was happy haha.

Today's plans are to be miserable at work all day because I forgot my purse. WTH. Not sure how I managed to do that but thankfully I have gas in the car and brought my lunch yesterday. I don't have my headphones so I can't listen to my phone like I have been. Boo. So boring here. I just remembered I forgot to take something out for dinner too. I made chicken thighs and potatoes last night. There was a little chicken left but not a lot.  I got side tracked with the little man so didn't do the meal prep stuff how I had wanted to. Well I have 4 days off so I can work on some meal prepping maybe! Or maybe I'll just take a nap and sew. I have no plans for the weekend and Trevor will be working so unless someone comes over I'll have the house to myself and the animals ;)

A tip I learned when my dog was a puppy from the breeder and then a trainer at day care. The more you crate the more wild they will be later. We thought he was nuts but found it to be oooh so true.
Think of crating a 2 yr old. When they get out are they calm? oh no! More wound up than ever. So expect it to be the same with a dog. They will need to run and get some type of mental stimulation outside or inside and then run for exercise. So we had to stop that but you don't have anyone home so I get why you do it. We crated for 2 weeks and then saw the difference and never again. We kept the crate open so she went in there to nap as a puppy more than her bed but then just got rid of the crate. This dog is so darn cute!

@Peg, I've never crated a dog before. Rusty ate my house so I was trying to avoid that. Luckily with our schedules the days she won't be home alone too much.

Julie, yep I get why. We didn't get a dog until we were home so I just thought if I went out I needed to crate her. Boy I found out the hard way. But I get your situation is far different. Puppies are like babies. You have your hands full - even though it's Trevor's dog - Lol.
