the "joys" of "motherhood"

yep, the quotation marks were truly necessary. You see, I´ve been missing in action because of work, but mostly because of the new member of my household.

playing wiht my fake sister

Yep, lovely, isn´t she? I introduce to you officially: Phoebe, readers; readers, Phoebe.

Well, although she is dreamy indeed, she is also particularly energetic these days… which means she likes to chew on wires, jump and bite me while I´m watching tv in the couch like the true couch potato I am.

Don´t get me wrong, I love her to bits and I knew puppies could be troublesome. I mean, we did raise Maia and she turned out great. But the main problem must be in the “we”. This time, it´s all on ME… she depends on me for food, entertainment, everything. And she doesn´t seem to sleep as much as she should, which means I don´t get to relax as much as I should, which means my patience is not at its highest level at the moment. And it´ll be two more months before the vaccines kick in and I can take her to the park and let her blow off some steam and play with other dogs. In the meantime, I´m stuck at home trying to come up with a way to create a safe environment to leave her in when I have to leave the house for a few hours.

Ok, that´s enough… all I meant to tell you is that I haven´t forgotten about you… it´s just been a rough week for me and I´m adjusting to that before I jump back in the kitchen. I do have a few recipes I made last week that I have to tell you about. I´ll probably write about them in the weekend.

And I´m sorry for going off-topic like that. It´s just that this week is all about this

giving the teeth a little workout

instead of food.

    Jenifer and Kristen- Thanks! It´s slowly getting better as she realized I don´t share her energy level! lol
    Now I´m back at my parents house for the weekend so she´s burning some of the extra energy with her mom, thank god! haha

    Oh my God she’s so beautiful! And I love the name Pheobe.. how cute! I remember about 4 years ago, raising our puppies – I hadn’t done that for years and years and back then I the help of my sisters and parents.. but not this time! heheee They really do demand a lot of energy from their parents don’t they? haha!

    Chloe, my Aussie Shepard, was truly a test of my patience.. holy comoly, I still shudder at some of the things she pulled before she “got with the progam” ha!

    Anyhoo.. congrats on your new lil daughter – she really is gorgeous!

  5. Dear Marce and Phoebe,
    so now I have explored your blog and have totally fallen in love with your puppy pics. I have browsed back to the birth date and so Phoebe was born in the Holy Night, wasn’t she ? My Gino was born in the Holy Night of 2001, isn’t that a great coincidence ? Phoebe is adorable and the cutiest Golden puppy I have ever seen, apart from Gino of course. And your Maia is such a good and beautiful dog. I think I am going to add your blog to my favourites so I can read more about Phoebe’s future life. Has her sister stayed with your other family ? To give birth to just two seems unusual for a Golden, but the more you surely are in love with the two little sisters. All the best for a happy life together ! angelika and gino
