And even though she’s less than three months old, she’s understanding what no means very quickly. Smart girl. I’m actually amazed at how quickly, in just a few days time, she seems to understand what I mean. And not only understand, but actually do as I ask.
She’s lucky she has a cute face. Because I came home the other day and she decided that my laundry room (which she stays in with her puppy pad, crate, and food) needed redecorating. With poop. Everywhere. On the appliances, on the floor, and as if that wasn’t enough, on the walls. Ugh.
I guess that’s her way of telling me that she agrees that I should paint the laundry room a different color, which I’d been thinking about for a while. But I don’t want it brown, either. Thanks for using your very limited color palette, Charlie, but I got this one.
Her first full day in the house was unfortunately a day where I had to go to work. Her little episode was clearly a lack of proper training on my part (as in, I was the unprepared one – she is just a baby!), which I’ve since been doing more research about (if you’re wondering, I’m starting her on this series of training methods – and the results are AMAZING).
As I’m typing this now (which is the evening, but it will post in the morning), I am happy to report that my little bug is quietly and peacefully resting in her crate. It will take more effort on my part to prevent a repeat (and let’s face it, the more exhausting hours and hours of cleaning) of her first experience in her new home, but in the end, she and I will be much happier – and actually get a few more winks!
