New Schedule Because of a New Addition

I’ve finally started to work out again this week.  I decided trying to fit in a workout after work wasn’t happening.  If I had a miserable commute, I had no desire to then workout and make dinner.  I could only muster the energy to do one of those things and food always won out over exercise.  In addition to waking up early to get my fitness on, I’ve also added two morning walks to my routine because of this cutie!

The Penguin and I adopted a pet from the Washington Humane Society. I’ve been wanting to get a dog of my own for a long time and when I saw WHS was offering $10 adoptions, I just couldn’t pass this cutie up!  We have had her for a week and she is obviously still adjusting, but I just love her.  I can’t wait to get home at night to play with her and cuddle up next to her.

I know I have mentioned that owning a pet is like having a child.  The responsibility is huge and your life changes because of needing to let out and feed another thing, but we are ready for the challenge.  She seems to be perfectly content sleeping all day, but is ready to go whenever we pull the leash out.  She is calm in the car and likes to sniff new dogs. She doesn’t really know how to play with them so we are going to work on that with some puppy play dates/dog park excursions.

I am so excited to have her as a part of our family and I can’t wait to share more dog stories with you!
