Guess what? We got a puppy! Her name is Mila and she is around 6 months old. She is a mix between a black lab and a chow, although we mostly see the black lab in her.
We got her 7 weeks ago from a woman on Facebook who was giving her away. Actually, we got her on the first day of school, so that was very stressful for me – new kindergarteners and a new puppy all on the same day!
We started working on training her right away, since she was so young. her previous owners must have worked a little bit with her because she was house-trained fairly easily. She has also mastered sit and shake and goes right in her crate when it’s mealtime.
Speaking of mealtime she eats a cup of food twice a day (with lots of treats in between). We have been giving her the “I and love and you” dog food which you can find here. We like switching up the flavors when we buy a new bag, but she seems to love it all.
Thankfully, Mila has always slept through the night while she’s been with us. She enjoys sleeping at the end of the bed and occasionally she will be a little cuddly.
I also filmed a video for my YouTube channel so make sure you check that out! It includes a little more information on her including a vet update. I hope to be doing more updates on her as she grows!
