And Life Goes On

Good Morning! So, I wanted to take this time to introduce my new family member to all of you. As you all know, I had to put down my best friend in October. It’s been a rough road since then, But with a push from my mom, I have welcomed a beautiful little girl into my life. Since I love Huskies, she is also a husky…. I just can’t not have one! But anyway, her name is Athena and she is an Agouti Husky. Agouti is what they call her Fur pattern, it is also known as the “wild’ color. She very much looks like a wolf and she is just so cute. I had originally wanted to adopt a husky, and I really really wanted a red and white one…… But unfortunately, most of the huskies for adoption were either out of state and won’t adopt out of state, Male…. which I just wanted a Female, Didn’t get along with cats, didn’t get along with other dogs… which we want to get a brittany at some point too, was very old… and I can’t go through what I went through with zoe so soon, or…. The one dog I wanted and could adopt, it took the place over four weeks to get back to me about my application and then after that time, told me that if we wanted her then we needed to adopt a second dog. It was not in our plan or budget to have a second dog right away, the plan was to get another a year later. So sadly, adopting did not work out….. We found Athena at a breeder, which I’m not really sure that I will get from them again. They had way too many dogs and it wasn’t as clean as I wanted it to be, but I fell in love with my little girl.

Athena is now 11 weeks old and has been with us for 3 weeks, let me tell you….. Potty training is hard! I’ve never had to potty train before and Oh My God!! it’s tough, she keeps me on my toes and it really is just like having a toddler. She is all over the place, but takes naps often. I wish we had done this when Zoie was still around, I think she would’ve made it a lot easier and I really think she would’ve loved Athena. She would’ve finally had another dog to play with, instead of having to bother the cat. Speaking of the cat, Athena and Katie are currently at war. Katie is trying to be the boss and Athena isn’t really going along with that. Katie will steal Athena’s bed and blanket, so Athena will snatch Katie’s blanket from her cat perch and chew on it in front of her….. it’s actually pretty entertaining, I’m not gonna lie…. I laugh at them a lot!

The first one is Athena at 7 1/2 weeks which is when we got her and the other is at 10 Weeks.
