Zooey!! Puppy Sitting

Our neighborhood friends the Brodbents, have a puppy named Zoey, she is so cute. We love her so much.

They were out of town for a few days. And we were delighted to have her as a visitor.


She quickly settled in, and became a part of our family.

She needs to be taken to pee and poo three or more times a day. She is fed that many times. I spend lots of time sitting on our front porch waiting for her to “make.” One morning our neighbor’s dog Toffee came over and they had fun playing.




The greatest part about this is to see how responsible Mirah has been at taking care of her.

BUT Zoey is still a puppy. She has made messes and keeps finding things to rip up. Like her toys and Mirah’s toys. She desptryed Mirah’s Pinky Pie Doll. She has pulled apart the corner of our living room rug. She has pooped and peed in the hosue more times than I can count. She has pooed 2-3 times every day of her stay. And although I TRULY adore her, she visit has taught me a few things about myself:

  1. I am not ready to have a dog yet in my life.
  2. I thought I would get upset or frustrated when she made messes, but really, it’s just inconvenient and annoying.
  3. I love dogs. I am a dog person.
  4. The kids will be able to take care of a dog once they are old enough.
  5. When the day comes that I can really focus on a dog’s care and training, I want a little dog.
  6. I need to learn more about potty training a dog, care for puppies, and training dogs in general.
  7. A dog will really add to our families happiness, someday.

I mean look at Mirah, she loves this little puppy.

We will miss Zooey when she leaves us.
