Mis Hap

So we had our first real messy mis hap the other day. We are trying to potty train Koda. We have a big crate but we wanted a smaller one so that if he went to the bathroom in it he would not be able to get away from it. So we borrowed a smaller crate from someone. Well.....that did not work so well. We left Koda in the cage while we went to work and we put Reign on the balcony. Jonah went home on his lunch break to check on the puppy and was hit with a wall of stench! He went to get Koda out of his cage and saw that Koda, along with his cage, was covered in dog poop!!! Jonah took him straight to the bathroom to give him a bath. So we are not going to use the small cage from now on. He will just have to learn that he goes outside. I dont have a problem if he pees in the cage. That doesn't smell as bad as when he poops. But we will see how this potty training goes. The good news is, is we think that Koda is starting to warn up to us a little bit. We took him outside with Reign and he started to play around with us a little bit. But he still has some things to get used to. He still would rather huddle in a corner than come be with us. But we are working on it. Slowly but surely.

New Addition!! Welcome Koda!

I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. This is Koda. We picked him up yesterday. He is 11 weeks old and is so cute! He is scared to death right now. He is really nervous. I can understand that cause we just took him from his family so he must be going through a lot. He is a Great Pyrenees. Sorry the pictures are off my phone. I took them on the car ride home. Hopefully I will be able to get some pictures of BOTH our puppies on our good camera and share those with you.

Anxiety Plus

K so here is the update on what has been happening with me. I have been to the doctor numerous times to find out what is wrong with me. It turns out that I am having anxiety problems. Don't ask me where they came from. I know that I worry about a lot of things, but lately I have not been worried about least that is what I thought. I will be sitting down relaxing, and all the sudden I will start to freak out. I don't know where it is coming from. I have been trying to do stuff to help calm me down but I have not found anything that really helps me yet. So for now, I am on some medicine to help calm me down. Prozac for more of an everyday medicine, and Lorazapam for when I have really bad episodes and can't get anything else to calm me down. Hopefully I will be able to get something figured out and get this fixed. I don't want to have this hanging over my head all the time. It is not a good feeling to be freaking out about something and there is nothing I can do about it. And people are telling me to calm down. Trust me if I could make this go away I would. This is not something that I want to deal with. I will let you know if anything new happens.
As far as Jonah and I go, things are going well. We are taking our sweet time getting everything unpacked. Mostly we just need to hang our decorations up. We are a pretty boring couple. We sit at home and watch tv or play on the computer. There is really not much else to do. I am excited that it is starting to warm up. I am sure that we will be more up for taking Reign for long walks if the weather keeps getting better.
I was thinking last night about all that is going on in the world, and I couldn't help but be so grateful that Jonah and I have been as fortunate as we have been. We have a nice home, food on the table, and are able to pay for the things that we need to. This is a hard time for many people. I only wish that we were in a better situation only so that we could help out our friends and family that are having a hard time right now. But we are grateful that we have what we do and that we are so blessed. We want you to know that we love you all and we are very grateful to have you in our lives.
