My Life

Updates in my life

So first and foremost, I now have a dog to go with my four ferrets! That’s right! A dog! My parent’s dog had puppies in 2014 and the dog I now have is one of those puppies. She will be 3 next month. She’s a brindle Presa Canario and she’s one of the best things to ever happen to me. She makes me so happy. I’ve always been a dog person, but having my own dog and not just a family dog makes the bond even stronger. We picked her up from her old home on Wednesday night. It was about an hour away. She was so happy to sleep in a human bed since she’d been a farm dog for the past six months. Oh, her name is Lucky. I can’t remember why, but that’s what my sister named her when she was born. I think maybe it was because she’s blind in one eye. I’ve already started spoiling her by subscribing to bullymake.com ‘s subscription box. She got her first one yesterday and it had 3 different types of treats and 2 chew toys. She loves one of the toys, it’s a rubber treat dispenser.

Oh, her name is Lucky. I can’t remember why, but that’s what my sister named her when she was born. I think maybe it was because she’s blind in one eye. I’ve already started spoiling her by subscribing to bullymake.com ‘s subscription box. She got her first one yesterday and it had 3 different types of treats and 2 chew toys. She loves one of the toys, it’s a rubber treat dispenser. The other toy, a candy flavor nylon ring she could care less about.

She takes treats willingly, but getting her to eat is a chore. She does this thing where she lays down when she eats. She’s also a very slow eater.

Lucky and I both have to get back into shape. When we take our mile walk, she starts to slow way down about halfway through. I’m trying to ease her into a walking schedule instead of walking her every day right off the bat. Hopefully, she’ll get better and so will I.

We’re so spoiled with not having her as a puppy. She’s already potty trained. We take her out every few hours and if we don’t she will whine to let you know she has to go out. She has yet to chew anything up either. I’m really proud of her and happy with her.

I made an Instagram for her, you can follow her @luckysadventures14 . Or I’ve been posting things on my facebook about her. You can always add me on facebook if you don’t already have me.

Getting her introduced to the ferrets is proving to be a chore. We let Sirius down on the floor with her a couple of days ago and she pounced at him and growled. So I’m not sure she’s ever going to get along with her ferret brothers and sister. I hope it works out eventually, if not we’ll just have to keep them separated.

Logan’s still getting acclimated to the night shift at work. I’m glad I have Lucky to keep me safe and keep me company on the nights he works. She really helps. She’s such a cuddler. She loves to lay on the couch with her head in my lap. It’s so sweet.

She had a busy day yesterday. I took her to meet my best friend, Brooklyn. We sat outside and Lucky sunbathed a little. Brooklyn liked her. Then we went to Grandma and Grandpa’s in Atlanta, IL for the first time. I think they really liked her. She pretty much slept the whole time since we took a mile walk before we went to Atlanta.

I just hope that my new love for Lucky doesn’t interfere or cause me to neglect my first babies, the ferrets. I haven’t seen them out and played with them for almost 2 weeks since we got Lucky. I’ve been playing with Lucky in the kitchen while the ferrets are in the Living Room and Dining Room with Logan for their playtime. We have a gate that separates the Kitchen from the Dining Room. As I said, hopefully, one day they can all play together. I love my ferrets so much, but I love Lucky so much too. I just want us to be a big happy family.
