What have I gotten myself into? That was the first thought that came to my mind when I woke up this morning. We adopted a German Sheppard. Let me rephrase that, a 2-year-old German Sheppard and oh my, I’ve had dogs all of my life, but German Sheppard’s are a whole other level.
The back-story to how we got Lincoln (that’s his name, Lincoln. Well Link, after a character in Zelda, but that name doesn’t fit him. He’s much more of a Lincoln, you know like Abraham Lincoln. I already have nicknames for him, like Lincoln Log. He’s a refreshing addition to our household.
EVERYTHING TAKES TIME
I know it will simply take time. Everything takes time. The back-story to how we got Lincoln was his former family couldn’t handle him anymore. They just didn’t have the space for him; so much so that he was sent to the garage every day and no dog should be cooped up all day, especially a German Sheppard. He’s a ton of work. I’m not putting that lightly at all. I mean, 24/7 round-the-clock work.
People are warning me left and right on Instagram not to run both of them together, but that seems really silly and extreme to me. I mean at first of course, we need to find our jam, but long term, I agreed to take on Lincoln so that he could be a running partner to Roxy. For now, I’ll run them one at a time and then slowly load them all into the car at once and run them together.
Honestly, though, I think running them both together right away is the best way, but if anyone has any advice on this, please send it my way. I’m new to owning a German Sheppard and open to all of the helpful advice.
We will find our way. I’m giving it a week to really see how things go and then I’ll take it from there. One hour at a time. I also believe this is wonderful training for parenthood which I’m more than ready for so the more of this, the better.
Can you guys believe it’s already March? How is that possible? Saint Patrick’s Day is almost here. I love Saint Patty’s Day! Everyone is crabby from Daylight Savings time, but I’m the opposite. I LOVE daylight savings time because you know what more light means? More light means, longer runs and more time outside which I’m all about.
Another reason why it’s essential for all of us to find our groove because summer is coming and I’m over the moon for all the sunny days and longer nights! Daylight savings time also forces me to wake up earlier. Even though we lose an hour of sleep, I wake up earlier and more refreshed.
