Meet the newest addition to our family: Mason!
We've known we wanted to get a dog for awhile now and had been searching online, but neither of us had really found what we had in mind. I am a huge fan of adopting shelter dogs (and puppies!), but when I visited the SPCA in town last week and didn't find someone I loved I was feeling a little discouraged. Nicholas and I decided to try the SPCA in Staunton, VA (about 45 minutes away) on Saturday and just fell in love with this little pup! We couldn't take him home that day (we forgot to bring Poe Cat's rabies vaccination certificate!), so I picked him up bright and early (ok not really early, but right when they opened) on Monday morning. He's such a sweetie and FULL of energy!
He's 7 1/2 weeks old right now and so teeny! The lady at the SPCA told us they thought he would get to be about 40 or 50 lbs, but right now the Poe Cat is easily three times bigger than Mason! Poe Cat isn't too sure what to think of him. Mason bounces around and tries to play with Poe, but he isn't really having any of it. Poe Cat spends a lot of time just staring at Mason trying to figure out why he has so much energy!
We definitely have our hands full with our new little pup right now! I took him for his first vet check up and it went really well. We're working on crate and potty training and it's super exciting, but so tiring! Does anyone have any puppy training tips/experience?
I have a couple blog posts that I've been meaning to write, but Mason has been keeping me pretty well occupied! Several super sweet bloggers were nice enough to tag me for a couple blog awards that I will definitely be passing on soon and I have (yet another) mascara review to share with y'all. You know I'm always on the hunt for an even better fabulously dramatic mascara!
