What I Learned This Week

It’s been an interesting week here at the McResidence. Things have changed quite a bit and we are loving our sweet puppy.

We’ve had Bentley for one week. He is a lot of work and a lot of fun. He enjoys being with people. He loves to chew on things, fingers, cords, toes, clothing, and any little thing he can find lying around. He gets excited easy and lets me cuddle him when he’s tired.

Here’s what I’ve learned SO FAR this week….

1. Having a new puppy in the house is like having a newborn in the house.

2. A Yorkie puppy can sleep in ANY position.

3. It is easy to fall head over heels in love with two pounds of energy.

4. House training is a tough process.

5. Bentley sleeps about seven hours at night before whining to get out of his crate.

6. Yorkie tails are often docked for cosmetic reasons.

7. The average Yorkshire Terrier is approximately seven – eight inches tall and weighs between three – seven pounds.

8. There is a high concentration of Yorkies in New York City.

9. Yorkshire Terriers usually live to be 12 to 14 years old.

10. A Yorkie with championship bloodlines may cost as much as $4,000.

11. A Yorkie puppy gets a lot of attention out in public.

12. Alex is not a fan of dogs, but he loves Bentley.

That’s what I learned this week.

    Oh my word Julie. He is gorgeous – of course Bentley is too!

    It is so funny when little fluff bags sleep on their backs without a care in the world. Does he snore? It is so cute when they do that.

    Bentley is really good sleeping that long at night! Welcome to your third child.

    Congratulations. x
