Confession Time

I have a small confession to get off my chest...

You may remember that we recently adopted a new puppy that we named Piper.

We've had her for just over a month now.

I do not like her! I do not like her at all.

I feel bad saying that because I'm a huge dog lover and was so ready to get another pet after losing our beloved Emma earlier this year.

But, Piper is just so bad. She bites all the time - you can hardly hold or pet her that she is not biting you everywhere. She chews on everything. She is not doing well with the house training thing at all. She is not affectionate. I keep thinking maybe it's just a puppy phase and she will get better but every day she is the same or worse and it wears me out.

I really don't know what to do. My kids are not even all that attached to her. This was my big fear about getting another pet. Our previous dog was so good and sweet and loving - I worried that if we got another we wouldn't get so lucky. And, we didn't.

Ahhh, Kari. I am so sorry. Don’t feel bad, Piper may not be the best fit for your family. As all always, I wish you the best. ;o)
