Potty Training Woes…

We have a new addition to our family. He’s about 4 months old, very cute, playful, and makes us happy. And he’s also furry and walks on all fours. His name is Scout and was a birthday present for the kids. The drawback? The little ball of fur isn’t house trained! *pulls hair out!* Seriously, every time I think we’ve made some progress with the little guy, he pees on my floor. Today, he poo-pooed on my floor…twice! We hadn’t had a poo-poo accident in almost a week and then today he does it twice. The training information I’ve been reading said you should not get mad at the puppy but realize where you went wrong and try it again next time. That whole “not getting mad at the puppy” thing only goes so far though after I’ve cleaned pee off my carpet RIGHT AFTER HE WAS JUST OUTSIDE FOREVER AND HAD PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITY TO RELIEVE HIMSELF BUT NO, HE WAS TOO BUSY EATING BARK OFF A TWIG TO REALIZE HE HAD TO GO UNTIL AFTER WE GOT IN! Ahem. *deep breath.* It’s a good thing he’s so cute (and he really is adorable) or we’d be having us some real live hot dog for dinner, the kind not made with lips and bootie, if you know what I mean. I just hope my carpet holds out.

On another note, I am in danger of losing my vast readership if I don’t keep this site updated! 🙂 Sorry everyone! I’ve actually been in the process of loading up some pictures of recent canning adventures for over a week now. I just need to sit down and get ‘er done because they are really neat (in my humble opinion).

Off I go to get dinner out of the oven and make sure our little four-legged poopy, er, puppy is okay.

  1. I can’t wait to see the little ball of fur even if he is a poopy mess. this blog cracked me up by the way 🙂 love you

  2. I am glad you have a dog. I am sorry it is not trained. Which dog did you go with? I am sure that the kids love him anyway! Do you remember when we had a puppy when we were little? The little guy was chewing furniture and just crazy. I hope you stick out the dog ownership thing, if only for your kids sake. Plus dogs can be pretty coool when they are older… 🙂
