If you are still reading my blog, then you probably weren't freaked out by the semi-emotional breakdown in my last post. The truth is that I am human; I have real feelings beyond all the food and sparkle in my life. I wanted to preface this post with yesterday's, so I could explain what happened last weekend.
Dogs just make everything better. This I know for sure. Since losing Cooper, I have gone through phases of never wanting another pup (to prevent future devastation) and wanting every pup in sight. But, I would consider myself a rational person. And I would never take on the responsibility of my own pup without knowing one hundred percent that I could give him all my attention. With my busy work schedule, this just isn't a good time. So, I had to consider the next best option. Luckily, I have a friend who will give me all the puppy playdates necessary to mend my broken heart. An adorable pup just came into my life. This is him.
Meet Smokey. He is an eleven-week-old blue-nosed pitbull and the new guy in my life. My friend Kaitlyn and I decided we wanted [slash needed] a puppy sleepover. So, Smokey came home with us on Monday night. We played, played some more, and I took tons of pictures to document every moment with him. These are a few.
I obviously was not going to have a puppy sleepover without being prepared. I bought Smokey a little blue squeaky koala and he loves it. By love, I mean he chews it to death. Still, I think deep down it's all love and teething. Kaitlyn and I were exhausted after our pupsitting adventure, but it was totally worth it. Puppy time is the best time (Well, maybe aside from no pants time). On Tuesday, we dropped him back off before my late afternoon shift at Anthropologie. And that was kind of it. I was sad to let him go (definitely sadder than if it were a real human child). Although it was only for one night, this pup just made me so happy. I can't really explain it, but puppy time is literally everything right now.
