I have been asked by quite a few people , to write a blog about our dogs .
So I thought I would do a little update .
We have only had Stan the Jug and Oscar the Cavachon for 12 days and already they’re part of the family .
Stan is 8 months old and Oscar is 7 months old .
They’re our babies .
We love them more than anything !!
My parents have become Nan and Dats to them . My brothers are Uncles etc etc .
Stan needed a new harness so I spent a small fortune on a new one and am tempted to get Oscar one as well .
I know it’s a lot of money but they look amazing in them !!
The colour really suits Stan (Red) .
They were definitely a challenge .
Both needing a little house training and still currently going through other training regarding tricks 🙂
But they’re gorgeous and so worth it .
Before them , I would stay in bed until mid-day and then clean and do sod all for the rest of the day . Leaving my depression get the best of me .
With the news about my broken and bulging discs in my back , it really wasn’t helping. The thought of an operation terrifies me . So I needed something to help me .
The dogs have most certainly done just that .
They keep me on my toes .
But I’m up at 10:30 latest . Although , on weekend the dogs tend to sleep until 11:30 .
I feed them and brush them , let them out etc . All the usual stuff when you have a dog .
I have lost weight too !!
Massive bonus !!
I now have curves . Super happy about that .
I do take them on short walks .
I can’t walk far so we go as far as I can with a few stops here and there .
They’re great on the leads though.
My parents and Rob help me with that though as I can’t leave the house alone .
I don’t get many depressive spells anymore , although they haven’t completely gone , but I’d say I’m 80% getting there .
My anxiety is up and down but not as bad as it used to be .
The choice to get these dogs was the best choice we ever made 😀
It helps that they’re cuddly . I get love 24/7 off them .
They do fight , but last Tuesday they had the snip so I am really hoping it helps .
Oscar is feeling rather sorry for himself though and always wants to be picked up and have sympathy 😂😂
Bless him though , he is just a baby .
Serious training starts after he has his stitches removed next Tuesday though 🙂
Stan’s are dissolvable and he doesn’t seem to care that he had an op .
He is as bouncy and playful as ever . No matter how hard we try to calm him, it’s next to impossible haha .
But all is good .
We are super happy and can’t thank our friend enough for giving us this opportunity .
She is still in touch with the boys and gets to see them .
They love it as they get extra attention haha .
We love it too as it’s a win win for us all .
