So I've learned something about puppies that I didn't know. Apparently, late at night right before it's time to go to bed, they turn into poop heads. Seriously. Evil, huffing (but cute) demonic poop heads. Don't let the picture above fool you...that's a poophead.
Willow had a fun day yesterday. She did very good on her walk on her leash. I went for support and to be a role model (I know all about modeling) and she plodded along around the block. We played, she rolled in the grass, she's enjoying being a puppy. So you would think at about bedtime she'd be passed out? OH NO! The little poophead was, what mom calls "fighting sleep".
Fighting Sleep involves a lot of laying down, huffing, getting up, licking my face, wandering around, barking at a kitty and repeat...and repeat....and repeat!! Mom says all puppies go through this and become Grumpy McGrumpersons at night. I was like, I wasn't like that! Was I? I'm an ANGEL!
Mom looked at me and said I was a terror! Not only would I get up and bark, I would find something to destroy, or I'd bite her and daddy or whatever I could to NOT go to sleep. I'd also act like I was going to bed, then get up and stay up till midnight or so just fighting sleep.
I totally don't remember this, so I think she's making this up! I don't appreciate this slander! You will be hearing from my lawyer, woman!! I mean, me? A poophead? I think not!
Finally mom got Willow in her crate and after one huff she promptly passed out. Mom says this is one of the parts of puppydom she doesn't miss! Dad just laughs. But all the other goofy antics kinda make it worth it. :)
Willow is also eating pretty good now. The only problem is, she's eating our raw noms. Mom wasn't going to feed her raw noms, cause whoever got her may not be into that, but it's the only thing she'll eat! And she was skinny, and she needs to eat so mom is indulging her, but she's going to try to slowly add her kibble back in. This morning she gave her some ground turkey and put some kibble in it. She ate a bit, then spit the kibble out. Sigh, this little girl may be more diva than I am! Mom even tried some canned puppy food, the little snot turned her nose up at it. I guess the girl knows what she likes! :)
Mom says it's a work in progress and we'll try again tonight when she should be really hungry!
See this? She's provoking me by sticking her tongue out at me! Poophead!
She tries to play with my giant, nasty Jolly Ball!
