3rd trimester pregnancy + puppysitting= not a good mix!
his name is Pancake
he is 3 months old
is fiercely cute
loves to play, bite and poop
here are some pictures of his first week here
i love this picture
he fell asleep like this for awhile
testing the boundaries
we are not sleeping through the night
here is a sample schedule:
8:30 pm- put Pancake in his crate and go to bed
11:30 pm- take Pancake to go pee on the puppy pad in the upstairs bathroom
3:30 am- take Pancake to go pee on the puppy pad for round 2
6:30 am (if we are lucky he doesn't cry before then)- take Pancake to go pee and then its time to start the day; I help watch Pancake while Ry gets ready for work; breakfast for Pancake
7:00 am- Pancake and Ry head to work (Pancake stays in his crate for most of the time)
7:00 am- I finally go to sleep ( Right now I don't sleep very well at all because of the pregnancy)
11:00 am- I wake up around this time and start my day
12:00 pm- go to Ry's work to drop off lunch and pick up Pancake and maybe run errands
2pm- back at home; Pancake pees and poops
2:30-3:10pm- Playtime (my usual naptime- oooy- I wear my Ugg boots so that Pancake doesn't nip my feet while I am wahsing dishes- he thinks my feet are a game every time they move and all my skirts are a game to him too!) Snacktime for Pancake
3:10pm- 3:35pm- Crate time with me (Pancake is placed in his crate and I tote him around the house while I do laundry/chores etc.- leaving him alone is not a good idea at his age- abandonment issues)
3:35pm- Pancake pees
3:40pm- playtime again
5:00 pm- naptime
...and here i am typing during my "break" from puppy. he is a cutie but my hat goes off to those owners of those practically perfect pets out there- you must have worked hard for it!
the rest of the night is a mix of playtime, dinnertime, relaxtime, crate time and then bed time- WHEW.
puppies are adorable, but not for the pregnant.
any puppy advice would be greatly appreciated- I really don't want to do anything wrong.
my dad said that this was great practice for newborns- let's just say the conversation ended pretty quick.
