Dear Zoey

Dear Zoey,

Hi puppy, it's your Mama with an important message to you:

You are nine pounds... NINE

Therefore your stubborn attempts to hunker down and pull on your leash in an attempt to stay outside in the cold, not going to work. I have two options when you do this; 1) pull until you start walking or 2) scoop you up and carry you inside. Either way, you lose. Please understand that I don't do this to be mean, but rather because I'm cold, and we've been outside long enough. If I could potty train you, and avoid the whole outdoor piece all together, I totally would.

Your pregnant Mama who isn't going to let you stay outside in the cold.


  1. Excited to find your blog...I haven't seen you on here before. Congrats on the new baby and good luck with the dog!

    PS I'm an oversharer too!

  2. Amanda this is really cute! Sorry but I just had to laugh. It is really good training for parenthood!

  3. LOL! that was great. I have always had 4 dogs until recently and I always tell people that if they want to prepare for parenthood - get a dog! Once your baby comes it will be like having your second child-LOL!

  4. LOL - yep, I've been there done that with stubborn dogs!!

    I'm a new follower from VB! Such a cute blog!

  5. Hehe, I have a couple of dogs who do silly stubborn things like this, but I have a couple of kids who do too! Great parenting training, lol!

  6. I hate to repeat, but yes, the perfect practice for the kiddos! It's great to find you on vB:)!

  7. Hehe!! Congratulations on your pregnancy! That's wonderful! It's so nice to meet you, and welcome to voiceBoks! I love your site... your photos are just lovely... you look so happy! And your wedding photo is beautiful!

    I'm stopping by (a little late) from the voiceBoks members to remember event... yeah, the one that ended two days ago... I'm a mess. LOL

    It's so nice to meet you! I wish you all the best!
