Life has been pretty hectic this past week and the thanks goes to this little munchkin, Paisley. (We named her after Brad Paisley 🙂 )
Yep I’m officially a mommy of a furry little girl.
Such a cutie.
Hubby and I had talked about getting a puppy for awhile and when we actually went to look, everything just seemed to fall into place. And quickly. When we saw her in person, I knew there was no way we weren’t taking her home that night.
This is a picture of our new family of 3 on her first day.
Hubby grew up with dogs, but this is the first time for me to be a doggy mom. And Boy it is A LOT of work. Phew. I’m currently writing this post standing with my computer on top of my ironing board so she doesn’t try to eat the cords or my computer at that.
After 1 week with Paisley I have learned:
- I probably won’t ever sleep in past 7 am 😦
- My shoes will never be left on the floor
- I need to make sure the puppy harness is on tight enough when I take her on a walk (woops)
- I will savor the moments when puppy is napping
- My floors will always have chew toys on them
- I’m so so happy to have my new furry little friend
Workouts have been tough during the week because we both want to spend as much time with her as possible. And if hubby is working out at night, I don’t want to leave her at home all alone. So, we have been trying to coordinate our schedules.
I was trying to do squat jumps the other night and Paisley thought I wanted to play with her so she started jumping up too. LOL. Too bad I don’t have a video of that one.
This week I plan on doing some of the Tone it Up at home workouts (while puppy is asleep) and go on a run when hubby is home. I also think it’s time for me to invest in some new workout dvd’s like Pure Barre or Physique 57.
Any pet owners want to share some puppy training tips? I’m open to everything and anything!
How do you get workouts in with a brand new puppy?
