Looks so innocent, doesn’t she? At 9 weeks old, Eurydice is everything a Siberian Husky should be: playful, sharp, with paws too big for what she’s used to, and growing by the day; three pounds a week growth, in fact.
Mornings with her, however, are hell. It’s what I like to call “Good Idea, Bad Idea”. Take this morning, for instance:
1) Good Idea – letting the puppy lick your daughter awake.
Bad Idea – Letting the puppy out of your sight before it has pooped.
Good Idea – Not letting the puppy out of your sight again.
Bad Idea – Chasing the puppy back into daughters room, resulting in puppy landing big-fat-paws first on daughters head, and daughter crying as her eyes open for the day.
Good Idea – Making puppy lick daughter better
Bad Idea – Screaming at puppy when it doesn’t lick daughter, but begins piercing daughters hand.
2) Bad Idea – letting puppy bite poop-picker-upper bags.
Good Idea – taking puppy outside to play & bite sticks. Also, puppy poops! Horray, have a potty party!
Bad Idea – using fore-mentioned bitten bag to pick up runny poop.
3) Bad Idea – puppy chewing on nice furniture
Good Idea – spraying Bitter spray on furniture legs to stop puppy biting
Bad Idea – then licking spilled coffee off hand, to find it is in fact Bitter spray.
4) Good Idea – giving puppy dog-specific things to chew on
Bad Idea – realizing that the puppy toys are EXACTLY like daughters prized plush animals in the eyes of a puppy
