Life with a Puppy –

Our First Week With Lana

Get a puppy they said. It will be such a great time they said. Puppies are cute they said.

Yep. We did get a puppy. And now we are tired and our nerves are melted to tiny little strings…

Ok. For real – I did not think that getting a puppy would be such a mission. I was aware that they need to be potty trained and they don’t sleep through straight away. I knew it was going to be a lot of caring and training.
But to be honest I didn’t think I would sleep so little…

Anyway – let’s start from scratch. A year ago Ingo and I decided to get a second dog. We wanted a friend for Bino to keep him company and to have a young spirit keeping him young, too. And to be totally honest we did think about ourselves a bit, too…

We took a lot of time for research and found an amazing breeder (check out the Proud Heroes kennel) and fell in love with their stunning dog Snoopy. We decided if we have a puppy it must be a daughter of her.
And yes – in general I am more for getting a grown up dog as there are so many older dogs who could do with an amazing home but Bino is not too good with grown up dogs in the house on one hand and on the other hand I had 5 dogs from rescue organisations now and really wanted to train a puppy from scratch for once.

And on Monday we finally collected our puppy. Welcome to the family, sweet Lana!

Our first week with the little girl was exciting. I didn’t know puppies can be THAT noisy…we are crate training her and she desperately hated to be in there for the first days. She honestly whinged like she was dying of pain. But sure – it is not easy to be away from all your siblings and to sleep all by yourself…and after all she is a baby!
The first nights were short and without much sleep as she was complaining a lot and she also needs to go outside for a wee every 3 hours at the moment…
But by now she has only had two wee accidents and she already knows how to sit and finally she is not complaining super noisily anymore when she needs to go to the crate – she’s still not happy but it is getting there.

And Bino is pretending to not like the little thing but every now and then they snuggle up in his bed together. She likes his bed much more than hers anyway, so she is constantly trying to get in there. Most of the time he is growling at her but sometimes she’s allowed for a snuggle. He is learning to be a great big brother =)
This really makes me hope they will have an amazing friendship…

Here are a few images of our first week together:
