I’ve been meaning to write this blog for a week now, a long with several others, but it has just been one of those weeks. Bringing a puppy home is a lot like bringing a newborn baby home – they need constant care and supervision and lots of love and affection. And while they don’t eat as often as a baby, they do need to be taken out just as often as diapers need to be changed. But it’s been a good week for all of that. Allergies and strep throat have visited our house as well, and while in some ways made it a little more difficult, it also gave us plenty of laying around time to bond with our new family member.
So…Minnie is home! We got to bring her home last Saturday and she is everything that we wanted in a puppy. She is the typical miniature schnauzer – happy, peppy, friendly, super smart, a quick learner, obedient and eager to please, and a natural with family connections. She is also affectionate, playful, and a very good cuddler. She has brought us all the joys that a new puppy does, but for us, even more so.
So without further adieu, here are some snapshots of our first week with Minnie Mia Lulu
