I don’t have anything much to say, mostly because the kids are currently in the tub, and I’m only mostly sure they’re not drowning (kidding, kidding…. I can see them.)
First off: I forgot how NOT-FUN potty training is. Does anyone remember how long it takes to potty train a puppy? I’ve had her a week and we’re about halfway there, but seriously – it’d be nice to turn my back once in awhile.
Anyways, I’d give you TONS AND TONS of really cute photos, because seriously – Artemis is one of the cutest puppies I’ve ever seen, but the truth is that black dogs are kind of impossible to photograph. I go to take a picture of her, and it just looks like some kind of dark, amorphous blob holding a ball in its mouth.
Also, I only have a cell phone to take a picture, and by the time I get it out and take a shot, it’s usually a picture of a dark, amorphous blob’s tail exiting stage left.
I did, however, manage to get a couple today, so here you go:
She’s 15 pounds at just shy of 8 weeks – that’s a three pound weight gain in one week. Yeesh. Provided I keep her slim and limit her food, she should mature around 75 pounds or so.
