Lucky is named for his astrological chart (Sun trine Jupiter-very lucky, and lots of 11's). Lucky is giving mommy quite the lesson in parenthood. Being a single mom is hard!

Well, I had a very fun day with Aunt Cindy. And Mommy knows it because all I want to do know is nap on her lap. I played all day with Aunt Cindy and her two babies-Samantha and Michael Thomas. Samantha reminds me of the little girl I used to live with and MT is just fun to give kisses to. I had lots of exercise and attention today! And Mommy is so excited because I did my business outside tonight! I didn't really know what all the fuss was about, I have been really confused about this whole part of the deal. I hope I catch on soon.


Mommy is TIRED

Mommy is so tired from learning how to parent me. I just want to be loved and there have been so many changes in my life already-I don't really know what's going on.
Well, I guess I'll let Mommy tell the story herself, 'cause I'm already on to the next adventure anyway!

Well, I have had Lucky since Sunday, October 22. I got him on the day of the new moon in Libra, which is another Lucky omen, but it has been quite a trip for me ever since.
Yes, I know my friends warned me, but you just don't know until you experience it.
Lucky is just the most loving puppy ever. He loves people and gives so many kisses. He wants to be with you ALL the time.
He has so much energy, but if you decided to chill out and watch some TV, he will want to be sitting right with you.
I don't know how much his first family interacted or trained him. But it looks like he is not yet far along in potty training. It has been a slow go so far, and he actually seems like he avoids going to the bathroom outside.
But today, he did both pee and poop outside! YEAH!
He also is not used to wearing a harness. I think his first family had a fenced in backyard, and he came without a collar, so he is not used to it at all. He has been itching his harness every time he walks. I thought it would go away after he got used to it, but it seems to be getting worse. He did go to the vet yesterday, and I mentioned it to her. She checked him for fleas and said he would get used to the harness. I think I may need to look into either a hemp harness or something more of a coat.
If anyone out there reads this and has any suggestions, feel free to let me know.

Last night was hard. I got home later than expected because of work, and he was crying so loud. Thankfully I have some wonderful friends who have stopped in on him for me. Kristi is the one that taught him to "sit."
Needless to say, I feel like an exhausted mom. I know that Lucky will react to my feelings, so I have to gain some more confidence in my ability to lead him and relax some. I don't know how people go to work and have children! All I do is worry about him.
Luckily, Lucky is staying at Aunt Cindy's today, so I don't have to worry.
Hopefully, we can make some strides in housebreaking and get on with the fun stuff!
