I may have posted about this before, but it is somewhat anew this week. Max thinks it his job to prepare me for motherhood. This week he has had a thing with throwing up. Gross. Each time, I pull out the rug cleaner which in turn makes him sneeze and sniff and make a fuss. Thankfully, he has had this "bout" before we are in our new home. I am sure he will find other opportunities there. I feel so sorry for him...he doesn't seem to be sick so I am not sure what's up.
He also tends to wake me in the middle of the night...sometimes to go outside, sometimes to just fuss, and other times just to make sure I am still there. All it takes is a snuggle or two and then he will scooch back down and sleep peacefully once again.
Today, I was picking up around the house. I picked up no less than 5 toys and bits of bone from around the house today and put them in his "toy box." He quickly found them and pulled them right back out again. I have a feeling he will teach Emma this same trick!
The whole time I was picking up, where was he? Under foot the WHOLE time! I couldn't get anything done for tripping over him. I will be in trouble when I have a dog and a baby to trip over as I clean!
When he was a puppy, he developed epilepsy. He would have seizures nearly every night which worried me to no end. I would cry and call my mom - even in the middle of the night - begging for advice. He is now on medication - which is a hoot! Ever given your pet pill and liquid medicine twice a day?? yes...he is preparing me all right!
I love my dog. Sometimes I can't believe I love a dog this much. I can't imagine how much I will love Emma...can't wait to find out!
