Our Little Guest

April 1, 2011

We have a little guest at our house this weekend.  We are baby dogsitting Tinkerbell this weekend for our best friends Rustin and Elizabeth while they’re on a little vacay.  Tinkerbell is only a few months old, so we’ll get our puppy fix (including the potty training) this weekend.  Luckily we are experts in that area!  Haha.  We have raised our fair share of puppies in the past few years, and are quite used to the good and the bad that comes along with having a puppy in the house.

She’s been great so far, and was very brave when meeting the GIANT dogs that call our house a home.  She even went potty outside!  She’s also having fun terrorizing playing with Lazarus, one of our kitties.  He loves the attention, though.

Elizabeth says that she sleeps through the night, so I’m crossing my fingers on that one!  Steve and I like our sleep, and if you know us, you know that is true.  Don’t try calling us before 9:30am or sometimes even 10am.  We will silence your call just like we silence our alarms.

Ha!  Funny side story.  A few days ago, Steve told me that his phone shows a word in a different language when the alarm goes off.  I said, “Really?  That’s weird.  Mine doesn’t.” (We both have iPhones).  Then a couple days later he said, “I remembered what the word is.  It’s spelled S-N-O-O-Z-E.  Snoozie!” (That’s how he pronounced it)  I just about died laughing.  “You mean snooze!?” I said.  “You know, like ‘hit the snooze button’?”  Then he said, “Oh, well I didn’t know that’s how it was spelled.  I thought it was a different language.”

Ahh, these are the things I love about him.  I love that I’m not the only one who has blonde moments or brain farts.

Anyway, we’ll see how this weekend goes.  I’m sure I’ll give you updates along the way, as well as pictures!  I should get some good ones tomorrow of her playing with the Saints.  In the mean time, wish us luck, and pray for a good night’s rest!

    Tinkerbell looks like such a sweetie! I hope she let you get some rest last night. If not, looking at that sweet face MAY make up for it 🙂
