Tuesday Flakes: Puppy Tips Welcome

Allick is repeat Big Ten Freshman of the Week

As I said last week, we surprised my boys with a puppy on Friday.

It was awesome. They were so excited and shocked, because we always made it seem like they’d never get a dog.

We named him Hagrid. We didn’t let the boys help choose the name because Puppy, Jr., or Brownie were not what we wanted to name him and those are the kind of names that my kids come up with. They were thrilled with Hagrid though, so we are good there.

He’s kind of a scaredy cat though. We’ve already been through a couple food bowls, because he is afraid of them. We are working on getting him to eat more. My husband and I are reliving those early days of babies having to get up every so often in the night to take him out to go to the bathroom. Also it’d be super fun if he would want to poop outside, but over all he’s been a fun addition.

Any puppy tips are appreciated.

Now on to the flakes.
