A few posts ago, I mentioned that Rhett and I had gotten a puppy. That's part of the reason I haven't been blogging as much! We spend all of our time hanging out with him, so I haven't been doing blog-worthy things. Even if I were doing blog-worthy things, I probably wouldn't have time to blog about them. Ok, that's an exaggeration...I could probably blog more. But why would I do that when I could be looking at this face?!
UGH, HE KILLS ME! I'm so glad Rhett decided he wanted a beagle, because holy moly are they cute. I have a hard time letting him run around and play because I just want to squeeze him and kiss on him all the time. We named him Chipper after Rhett's baseball hero Chipper Jones, who is a recently retired Atlanta Braves player. If any of you guys are looking at getting a puppy and have questions, feel free to ask. The biggest thing I can tell you is that it's a lot of work!
The potty training part was probably the hardest, but luckily it didn't last long. He quickly realized that he got praised lavishly when he did his thing outside and scolded when we caught him doing it inside. He also caught on to the bell training really quickly! We hung a bell by the door, so he can ring it when he needs to go out. He rings it when he wants to play too, but I don't mind letting him play outside. He LOVES it. There is so much to get into out there :)
I've been working on walking with him. He does pretty well about 70% of the time. Beagles have incredible noses so keeping him from getting distracted by every little thing is challenging. He walks around with his nose to the ground pretty much constantly. It's adorable. I should probably stop gushing about him now though, and just wish you guys a very happy Friday!
I will be shooting a wedding all day tomorrow, then just relaxing Sunday before watching the Oscars. Who are you guys rooting for to get Best Picture? I'm personally rooting for Argo! While I loved Zero Dark Thirty, I just think it is too controversial to win. I guess we'll see on Sunday.
