    So you know what I mean. Fingers crossed I'm wrong about the hurricane season.

    AHHHHH Fletcher just ate his evening meal and normally we go directly outside but we are having a thunderstorm so I left him in his crate a little longer hoping the rain would slow up. Well it did and I took him out with a big golf umbrella trying the cover the puppy more than me. He sniffed around and around rain started pouring again but I was NOT going in until he went. He finally peed I was hoping for more but... I got soaked (oh well at least its not cold out) and put him in his crate while I went to change my clothes then I let him out to play a little with me for a few. Well, sure enough he started sniffing around and around a sure sign he needed to go you know what. So back outside we went. I got soaked over again but he did his business outside. All the house training tips say to watch your puppy carefully to avoid accidents before they happen well I went for that tonight at all costs and won. Oh its a good thing I love that little monster!! I hope he is good to go for a bit or at least until the thunderstorms pass or my husband gets home. HAHAHAA Gonna go start a load of laundry now. Oh the joys of owning a puppy I wouldn't trade it for the world, but its an adventure, a sense of humor diffidently required.

    Please feel free to laugh at me! I got so wet I really looked like I stepped into the shower fully clothed twice! My kids thought it was funny.

    Hi Melissa...
    You made me *smile...and have to admit..chuckle a little
    I feel for you young Mom's that are also dealing w/ the puppy issues! It isn't easy when pups require just as much attention as having a little baby !! Not easy.
    I'm not so young anymore ( am a grandma w/ 3 grandkids). I also no longer work outside the home...so I had time to take our little Wrigley out every hour when we first got him. He was potty trained quickly. It also helped that we had our ( now 3 yr. old ) labrador too..as he showed him what he was supposed to do...lol.
    Anyways.... praying your little pup gets the hang of this soon for you ! Like you said..they add such joy to our lives...so they are worth the effort.
    *Have a great day*
    ~ It's raining & thundering here today as well.
