As many of you already know, we adopted a puppy this week, and yes even though he looks like a miniature horse, he is a puppy at 1.5 years old. His name is Ernie and he came from southern Ohio. A family there had thought he was displaying the prey instinct and couldn’t handle it. They needed a new home for him and fast. We didn’t want him to go to a shelter or to someone who wouldn’t do what is best for him so even though we were perfectly happy with just Prime and Jesse, we decided to take him on and he’s been a dream.
Our boys get along great with the new addition and he’s even met my son’s two dogs Blaze and Rex. It’s all been positive so far. He seems to want to give as much affection as he receives. He’s very laid back so he’s just fit right in.
In other news this week, I’ve lost 4 lbs. You don’t even know how happy that makes me. I don’t officially weigh in until Monday but I’m telling you, I feel so good about this already. I don’t even consider it a diet, it’s more like a change of living. I don’t crave anything and I don’t miss anything. I’m happy.
I took this week off of my appointments so I could be here with the dogs and I’m glad I did. I needed a break from driving back and forth to Columbus to be poked and prodded every single day. Like I said, I’m happy bur more importantly, I feel good.
