Please meet the newest member of the LaRue Family – Willow!
Yes, she may be adorable. But it has been a big adjustment for my husband Dustin and I since taking her home last week.
My husband celebrates a birthday on Friday (9/4) and I wanted him to experience having his very own dog for the first time!
Willow is almost 9 weeks old and she is a lab/German shepherd mix. She is just now starting to sleep for 3 hours at a time, making Mom & Dad very tired! But she is doing such a good job of going potty outside, going for walks and learning to sit on command.
It has been 10 years since I last had a puppy. Piper, our lab/collie mix, came first. Thankfully she is doing a good job of teaching Willow boundaries and how to act like a respectful puppy. (Caesar the cat is even starting to come around!)
