Thread: My New Baby!

    Default My New Baby!

    Just brought home our new baby!

    We're both jet-lagged and adjusting to our new realities, lol.

    This is Dagmar. She is 13 weeks old. She is a Standard Short-haired Dachshund.

    Thanks! I love her coat colour and I love the markings! She's very sweet too.

    I introduced her to the three amigos - over the fence. I don't think there will be a problem, but I won't let them loose quite yet together either until I'm sure.

    I did let our mini-Dachshund meet her directly. I wasn't too worried about those two, lol. The puppy is already as big as Hanni. She should be 2-3X as big when she's fully grown.

    ...hubby is already calling them the 'big wiener' and the 'little wiener'.

    She's not remotely housebroken. I'm anticipating some sleep-disturbed nights coming up.

    Very interesting patterning. I've never seen one like that. Puppies are always so cute but oh so much work. Enjoy yourself.

    LOL...their cuteness saves them from getting the blame for the extra work! :D

    Today was a long day...and I didn't get a full night of sleep in. Got up once for the big dogs, and one more time for the puppy. Started the day by doing laundry.

    Then I realized I do more around the house than I give myself credit for. I was only away for a week, but no one vacuumed or did the host of other 'little' things I look after. They all add up to one huge 'big' thing if you have to do them all at once.

    I let Hanni and Dagmar together in the house, after I took the two of them for a walk, to aid in the acclimating. The first thing they both did was run to the cat food bowls (off-limits to dogs - and the dogs know that)...and had a fight. LOL...

    Then Dagmar peed in her new I washed it and she now has to use the old bed. While I was doing that I soaked the tortoise. She wasn't soaked while I was gone, so I wanted to make sure she was getting enough water.

    In the basement I had a cockroach mess to clean up - and a cat pee issue to clean up. We had to put our old cat down 3-4 weeks ago. I hope this was old cat pee from her when she was starting to 'go', and not something new starting up with one of the two young cats. Now I need to let everything down there (that I washed) dry and then go back and start sniffing to make sure I found the issue. I also changed the kitty litter, to make it easier to keep an eye on things from today onwards...

    Two of the ponies escaped again...but I let hubby chase them down...

    It's only 5:30, but I'm already ready for bed.

    ...but the plants still need to be watered...

    Adorable new pup!! Congrats.

    I'm tired out just reading about all your chores. Hope you get a full night's sleep very soon.

    You are definitely onto something about not realizing how many little things you do and how all those add up to big things.

    It was another short night. Hubby was coughing starting at 3:00 and woke me up. I finally started dozing off around 5:00...and then the big dogs started howling...then I smelled the puppies crate - she had exploded (I think the new food is giving her the runs, but nothing I can do about that now, she'll adjust...I hope) I cleaned that up...

    Went back to bed - and the alarm went off. LOL.

    But! She peed outside this morning! Success!

    This afternoon we have our first puppy class and when we get back home from that, the kids are coming over to meet her, at dinner time.

    Hopefully she doesn't pee on everyone. :D

    This made me laugh and brought back memories of our dachshund... we learned to 'make our greetings' on the (tile) front porch -- or better yet, outside in the grass -- instead of in the living room. haha
