I know I keep putting off the blog this week but for good reason. I took on a big challenge this past week.
A really REALLY BIG challenge.
HUGE. We have a 9 lb. Schnoodle puppy that doesn't shed and is hardly any work. Flash is closer to 100 lbs. and he sheds like nobodies business. He is a German Shepherd and yes, we did get him Furminated this weekend which has helped a ton. My heart goes out to this guy. He is amazing and super smart. We rescued him from a bad situation. He had been crated all day every day. But you'd never know it because he is so good.
He is awesome but it's a bit of a change going from a tiny guy to a big guy. The two dogs get along really well and big guy is super gentle to little guy. The kids are obsessed with playing fetch with big guy and so there is never anyone around to help out when I need them. I've called them in from outside about a gazillion times this week. (and no I'm not exaggerating-- much)
Em came home from school talking about a new friend that he made.
Em: Horse Way
Em: No Mom, it's Horse Way!!!
Every night at dinner he brings up his friend and the rest of the family tries to guess what this kids' name could really be. It's become sort of a game for our meal time. I'm going in to help out in Em's class Thursday and it's killing me to know what the kids' name really is. Tonight I've realized that I'm going to feel really really stupid if the kids' name really is Horse Way. But what are the chances? Right?
