For those of you who aren’t able to come to my local classes, you may not be aware that my kids have been working on “earning” or becoming responsible enough to get a dog. I came up with a short list of things they had to complete or keep up with for 40 days straight. My kids worked hard and did their absolute best, for about 2 weeks… then they got discouraged and realized just how long 40 days actually is. So they worked little by little on various responsibilities and almost a year later have hit the point where they earned the privilege of getting iPhones…
But then one of my newest stampers, Jan I am talking to you 😉 , was chatting with me about her rescue dogs that she had adopted and then we chatted about how my kids had been working towards a dog and so on… then about a week or two later she texted me to let me know the rescue shelter she got her dogs from had just rescued 2 Shih Tzu’s. Long story short…
We now have a NEW member to our Family… Meet PICO
his little man belt keeps him from marking his territory in the house, while we work to house train him. It’s actually kind of cute.
I really am waiting for the moment when the dog says, ENOUGH! The kids have been hoovering over him CONSTANTLY and are being a little abnormally suffocating!
This little dude is super tiny. He is all of 8 lbs and he is roughly 5-6 years old.
My vote for a new name was Olof… my sons was Rigbee, and my daughter’s was Ash… but finally it was my husbands name that made the cut, truth be told my husband had come up with a list of about 8 names. One of his picks was PICO and that seemed to fit him well!
the sweetest memory from today, and the biggest reason why I really wanted this for the kids… because, well… every boy should have a dog.
So now that we have this adorable rescue pup, and we now need to house train him… I need YOUR help. I need all the suggestions and advice you have on house training a pup and finding a reward treat that he will like without having to buy them ALL and throwing a lot of money away.
I am excited to introduce this newest family member to my HOSTESS CLUB MEMBERS today when they arrive for class today. If you want in on some awesome perks and beneies then you want to check out my HOSTESS CLUB, I have 2 spots available for the club coming up in October. Check out all the details HERE!!
