It’s hard to believe that our westie puppy Theodore is almost 7 months old now! It feels like only yesterday we were “just looking” at puppies and decided to bring him home.
Neal’s and my plan after getting married was to wait to have children, including pets. Three weeks after our honeymoon though I got the itch and insisted that we just start looking at puppies.
The moment I saw Theodore I melted and Neal knew it was over. It has been a lot of work but oh so much fun having a puppy!
Today my cuddle bug was neutered (Theodore’s big day) and will be at the vet’s until Friday night. He’s doing really well post surgery and I’m sure he’s sitting in his crate thinking, “where the heck are my mom and dad!?!”.
It’s going to be incredibly weird to go home tonight to an empty house so Neal and I are going to take advantage of it. We have a date at the gym planned, followed by dinner and a movie at home (I’m thinking a whole wheat pasta dish and Pitch Perfect).
Theodore has been an absolute joy for Neal and me and I’m incredibly grateful to be a dog owner.
Can’t wait to pick him up tomorrow!!
