Taken this morning, after his breakfast. This pup sleeps...a LOT - which means, he's growing...a LOT! In just the couple of days that he's been here, we can tell that he's already grown...a LOT! He's eats nearly the same amount of food as our full size black lab, Blue.
Growing...Ahem...Sleeping again. This was after his bath on Friday. He's just a little fluff ball.
Look at her. Ugh - sweet good girl.
The past couple of days have been a little hectic (isn't life always hectic!) - we've been potty training the new pup. At this stage in the game, it is more that we are potty trained and we are dragging Ollie along for the ride. We are watching the times (he just ate...wait 10 minutes and take him out - he just woke up...take him out - he's sniffing the carpet...take him out). He wakes us up at night to tell us when he needs to go. He refuses to go in his crate. We had to run some errands yesterday (oh...LOTS of errands) and he was in his crate from about 3:30 to 8:30 (longer than I had originally hoped he'd be in) and he didn't have an accident and got all the way outside before he went! Good boy Ollie!
Speaking of yesterday and errands - we did so many things. It seems like we still have a strong connection to Dayton (hopefully that will lessen over time)...but when we go, we always have a marathon of things to do, stores to shop at, people to visit. It ends up being an all day event. We did accomplish a lot yesterday and I'm happy with our progress.
That's right, the Hearthstone Mansfield. That sweet mother of a wood burning stove will do many things - it heats up to 2500 square feet (which is enough for this house and if we add on a touch), it has a long burn time AND radiates heat for even longer, AND you can use it as a cook top should the power go out. I dream of having this stove in our home. Well, it's more than dream...I'm making it the goal. After the barn is up and the animals are settled in...this moves up on the list.
