A new puppy!!!! Yes, it was my husband's idea!! He wanted his own dog, but we WERE waiting until we move into a house, especially since he wanted a big dog. Regardless, we adoped Layla on Saturday!
She is a Shar Pei mix with a few other things. A mutt basically. But she's a cute mutt. She'll probably grow up to be a medium sized dog.
It seems that all she does is sleep! She'll play with Amira (who loves her!) for about 10 minutes then be exhaused again and sleep in your arms. We took both of them to the puppy park this weekend and everyone just adores her. I think Amira may be a little jealous. ;) I'm making sure I pay just as much attention to Amira though, because she is my dog.
It's been super fun watching Eric learn how to potty-train Layla, even though she's only 8 weeks old. I'm pretty sure it'll be a good experience for him! Haha. He keeps asking me to "help him" because I trained Amira, and it is a LOT of work. You just need a lot of patience and consistency! Fun times ahead! Haha.
