How My Life Changed as a Puppy Mom

Teddy was our family first puppy, but he’s always been considered my sister’s dog when we moved out of our parent’s house.

Iā€™m a supreme doggo #fashion

When I moved out a few years ago, I really missed the constant companionship of a dog, but I wasn’t really in a financial or mental state to take care of one. My bachelor apartment was too small and I thought it wouldn’t fit into my social and musical life.

Do you have a treat for us? šŸ˜šŸ˜¬

When Nash proposed and we moved in together to a bigger space, we spoke about our future and our desires for a little dog. We always thought it would come after the wedding but as soon as I met Bacon, I was in love.

I am half pretzel now #šŸ„Ø

The 6 weeks we’ve been together so far has flown by and he’s already grown from the 4lb tiny doggy he came home as. The first couple of weeks I lacked sleep and was always anxious to get home to him. Now he sleeps much better and I know he does okay by himself at home.

I’ve spent a lot more time offline than I used to. It’s kind of easy to choose between being on my phone/computer and happily paying fetch with Bacon. I’ve also gone on more walks and seen parts of my own neighbourhood I would have never otherwise have visited and neighbours (and their dogs) we’ve never talked to. Together we’ve seen the sun rise and set many times.

Snooooooze šŸ˜“šŸ¤¤#zzz

When I am online, I find I use the time more efficiently. No more am I browsing around aimlessly. I usually have a specific task I have to do in a short time frame (when Bacon is calm or napping).

I can’t wait until the weather is warmer so we can see more new places and people. Here’s to more adventures in the New Year, which in 2018 is also the Year of the Dog!

Bacon Has a Blog!

Bacon now his own blog over at http://baconthedoggers.com. I didn’t want to bombard this blog with dog posts (though there will be some occasionally) so I gave Bacon his own space. There you’ll find random photos of his adventures, fashion and occasional reviews of the doggy world.

Bacon’s First Week

Having a new puppy in my life while planning a wedding and working full-time is slightly insane, but I wouldn’t give it up for the world. Here are some random snapshots from his first week so far!

He’s already visibly grown and is getting used to us as his humans:

I Got a Dog!

I love dogs and I really missed having one around. Teddy was our first family dog, but ultimately, he belonged to my sister. He is also slightly too big for an apartment.

My hypothetical dog is now a real dog, say hi to @baconthedoggers

So meet Bacon, Nash and I’s new friend. He is a purebred miniature schnauzer who is currently a mini Pacman.

Sorry the blog has been a bit slow! Having a new puppy is almost like having a baby, a bit of a life change. I love Bacon so much already.
