We’ve been thinking long and hard for a long time now about getting a puppy. We did our research and looked at lots of different dogs before we settled on this little one – meet Lexi the Pug!
We picked her up on Friday evening and left the kids with their nanny. They knew we were going to look at a dog but we told them they were too small to bring home so we were just going to look. Can you imagine the surprise on their faces when we brought little Lexi in!
She’s so much tinier than I thought she would be but she’s been really good so far! We have a crate for her which is living in our bedroom at the moment so that she doesn’t get lonely at night (she cried her whole first night). We hope that in a few days we’ll be able to put the crate downstairs. We’re slowly introducing her to the cats – Amber just looked disgusted and Polly looked ready to pounce! I hope that as she gets a bit bigger we’ll be able to integrate them more.
We’ve found Lexi really sweet natured so far and the kids absolutely adore her. We do have to be a little careful with Little Boy though because he’s so boisterous and she is so small! The girls have fought non stop all weekend over whose turn it is to hold her! She’s had her first bath, and while I don’t think she really enjoyed it, she was very well behaved.
She sleeps a lot and is very cuddly but when she wants to play she is full of energy! I can’t wait to be able to take her out on walks and enjoy making her a part of our family.
