Congrats! You’re getting a new puppy! We couldn’t be more jealous. We’ve been there for all the snuggles and yawns (and also the chewed shoes and strewn trash). Here are eight things you should expect to happen when you bring home your new furry bundle of joy.
Little Fido loves to play more than anything, and when he’s not fast asleep, he’s going a mile a minute. Without even noticing it, you’ll spend your days moving around a lot. Embrace it—your puppy is making you your healthiest self.
Your 8-week-old puppy has a bladder the size of a peanut. So guess who’s getting up with him when he wakes up at 3 a.m to relieve himself? Prepare to consume lots of caffeine the first few weeks.
Look, Buddy will moan and whimper the first few nights you crate him, and you’ll feel pretty damn awful. Don’t be embarrassed if you shed a few tears, too. Rest assured: He’ll be sleeping through the night in no time.
Your tiny fluff ball is the cutest thing in the world, but he’s also going to poop on the floor and chew up everything you’ve ever loved. Instead of losing your temper, remind yourself he’s a baby that doesn’t know better.
All those vet appointments and trips to the groomer will start to add up. Plus, you’ll probably feel the uncontrollable desire to spoil your puppy rotten. There’s no cashmere sweater or Casper dog bed she doesn’t deserve.
You’ll become very familiar with the high-pitched tone and often made-up language you use to talk to your puppy. In fact, you’ll probably start talking to some humans as if they were four-legged animals. Doooo do da da dooo.
For the first few weeks (and probably even months), your puppy is going to cry whenever you leave the house, and trust, you’ll feel guilty aboutleaving her. But haven’t you always dreamed of that hermit life? Takeout and Netflix wins.
Because right now is so awesome.
