Puppy Pictures

I'm sure you all (mom) have been missing pictures of Zulu the past couple of weeks. I finally got around to snapping a few of her yesterday. She's growing more and more every day. We had her spade almost 2 weeks ago and she will be going to the vet on Wednesday to have her stitches removed.

She's been quite the rascal lately. She's improving in some aspects and getting worse in others. She's more calm around the house and while we are constantly telling her "no" and shaking a can of change (the loud noise gets her to stop), she is getting much better at being out of her cubby and just hanging out around the house. She's asleep on the floor as I type this.

One thing that is actually getting worse is her sleeping habits. A few weeks ago she was only getting up once during the night and occasionally sleeping all the way through. Not so much anymore. She now wakes up at 3:00 or 4:00 and goes out to potty. Then she'll sleep for about an hour or so before deciding that it's time to get up. She barks off an on until we finally wake up and let her out. Actually getting up is tricky though. We don't want her to think we're getting up because she's barking so we have to wait for a lull in between the barks before we can get up and start our day at around 5:00 am. I usually get up between 5:30 and 6:00 anyway, but the barking is really taking a toll. We've been super exhausted lately due to our lack of sleep. I think we're going to start keeping ear plugs next to the bed.

She is still so cute though and very sweet so I guess we'll keep her around. Just look at that face!
