Teenage Nightmare

I love my dogs, but I’ve been having a really rough week with Dexter. He’s 16 months old now and he’s an asshole. I think this is his teenage stage. He no longer sits on command, snatches food from the kitchen and thinks my arm is a bully stick. I’ve had puppies before, but none have ever outweighed me, which makes him near impossible to handle when he’s rowdy. On our drive to the park yesterday morning, I almost made a beeline to the pound when he wouldn’t stop barking at the other dogs we passed and nearly smashed my car window with his paw. I had to remind myself that he’s not always going to be an asshole. I’m really looking forward to his senior years.

    Meanwhile I had the saddest night with my little girl. SHe decided she wanted to go out at 2:30am in the dark and rain and I was so angry because she never does this. Then she did it at 3, 4, 5…thats when I realized something was wrong with my baby girl. It broke my heart I was so mad at her the first time she woke me up.
