Good morning, friends! Over the past couple of weeks you may have noticed a few guest appearances by this little gal over on my Instagram, but today I wanted to formally introduce our new Vizsla pup Louise! The full name is Louise Ana Prendergast (named after my favorite Southern state, obvi), but mostly we just call her Weeze. And let me tell you, although she’s little, Weeze girl has added a whole lotta spice around here.
I’ll admit that I never really had a dog on the agenda. I’ve never had a dog, and I certainly have zero experience wrangling a brand new puppy. But Eric has been nonstop chatting about getting a Vizsla since before we started the whole home remodel adventure, and when the finish line was in sight, I knew the pup was coming soon. And she showed up all cute and tiny and wrinkly and mellow, and I was instantly in love. It’s really hard to say no to those adorable little puppy eyes and those big, floppy ears.
From day one, she’s slept in her crate through the night with no problem, no accidents. That part has seriously been a dream. But during the day, ohhhh, man. During the day, Weeze girl has REALLY put me through it, y’all. The puppy stage is legit no joke, and I swear some days I thought I was losing my mind. (Or maybe I already have – fast forward to me arriving at a happy hour on day 3 with the pup and immediately bursting into tears at the sight of girlfriends. That’s normal, right?!)
But now we’re about three weeks in, and there is good news to report, folks. The Weeze and I are now in a good daily groove, and this little pup is pretty much potty-trained. Big victories, y’all. And as for Eric? Well he’s completely a smitten kitten, and Weezy lives to impress him. Plus, I mean, she’s just so dang cute. I last-minute decided to take her along for these outfit photos in the neighborhood last week, and it turns out Weeze loves the camera. What a little poser, right?!
So if any of you guys are currently in that puppy stage, stay strong, friends! Because it is legit so hard, and while I know that we’re nowhere near out of the woods, it’s getting better and better every day. (Puppy bath time is a real standout around here.) And, like, when there’s a puppy napping on your lap, can you really even remember those psycho puppy moments? Maybe don’t answer that. Hope everyone has a great week ahead!
