Puppy's First Year: Destroyed by Cuteness

To say the last nine months of puppy ownership have been an adventure would be a gross understatement. Life with our whippet puppy, Rosie Run Her Up, is certainly never dull. If it weren’t for her sweet round eyes, ridiculously long nose and comically thin body, I would’ve brought her back to the breeder after our first week. We brought her home in May as a five-pound, furry ball of puppy love and she has morphed twenty-five pounds of adorable whippety-goodness.

My patience does have limits. I’m not sure how much more destruction I can take. My friends tell me that when she turns 1, she will calm down. She will suddenly turn into a dream dog, a perfect dog, the kind of dog I’ve always wanted.

I’ll believe it when I see it.

Also special thanks to my ChicagoNow friend, Patrick O’Hara, who finally taught me how to post a slide show. Thank you, sir. Read his blog, Comedy, Tragedy or Me?
