These past months have been chaos! We bought our first house and started moving the next day. Exciting, right? But we decided to do it ourselves, which led to a journey from hell of over a week to get all our stuff out before the apartment lease ended.
The day after everything was finally moved, I was sitting on our unassembled couch pillows, on the floor, when I noticed Lola (our Cocker Spaniel) looking kinda sad. I was filled with lots of guilt and felt like the worst dog mom ever.
Ever since Rebecca was born, Lola’s life turned upside down. She doesn’t get as much attention and you can definitely see the difference in her behavior. Nothing aggressive, just a bit gloomier. The move – although beneficial to her in the long run (we finally have a backyard!) – only added to the list of changes, I’m sure.
So, ever since that day, I’ve been trying to set aside some time each day to give her my undivided attention. It isn’t easy, with a very demanding 1 year old, but she’s such a good dog and deserves to be loved!
She’s been getting extra long walks around the new neighborhood and lots of treats! Mostly her favorite – Pup-Peroni® Jerky Bites – but also the occasional biscuit. The treats can be found in both Pork and Beef flavors in the dog snack aisle at Walmart.
