Well, Jimmy and I are officially outnumbered by pets! We welcomed our third fur baby this past weekend. Her name is Mavis and she’s an eight week old cocker spaniel!
We are having fun getting to know her and helping her adjust to her new home. Lola and Malcolm are enjoying their new friend, and Jimmy and I are tired from quite a few middle of the night potty breaks 😉
Mavis is rambunctious, curious, and incredibly sweet. Overall, we are just loving our new little family member! I’ll post more about her soon!
So sweet! She has the cutest little face. Welcome, Mavis!
I agree 🙂 Thanks, Amy!!
OMG!! Mavis is so cute! I can’t wait to get a dog 🙂 so jealous. Hope you have a great Tuesday, Allie!
Thank you!! What kind of dog will you get in the future?!
Golden retriever 🙂 🙂
Allie I’m so jealous! Mavis is so cute and not helping my puppy fever at all. Have a great day 🙂
Aww thank youuu! And puppy fever is so real, isn’t it?! What kind of pup do you want?!
Well I want one that doesn’t shed but my boyfriend wants an English springer spaniel. He’s slowly convincing me because they are so dang cute as puppies!
You and Jimmy are puuuuuuuuuurfet parents for these dogs 🙂 How lucky they are to have you!
Aww, thanks Ellie!! That means a lot 🙂
Mavis is so cute I can’t wait to meet him.
Thanks, Josiah! I am so excited for you to meet her!
She’s beautiful, Allie!
I hear you re: housetraining. Hope you don’t have to get up too much in the night! It’s a lot of work at the beginning but it gets easier. Are you crate training her? I did that with Aimée. She got used to sleeping in her crate at night, and it definitely helped with house-training – she never messed in her crate.
Looking forward to lots of Mavis updates on your blog. 🙂
Thank you, Grace!! And yes, house training is so much work at first!! Especially since she’s so young. We are crate training her, and I think she’s starting to like her crate more and more and seeing it as her little den! It has helped a lot with housetraining :). She only got us up 2x a night for most of this week, which is much better than the 3-4x a night last week, ha!
Congratulations Allie!! She is a doll! I love cocker spaniels!
Thank you, Patty!! Aren’t they just the sweetest dogs?!
How sweet!!! She is precious!! I would love to hear more about how you got her! Was this something you guys were thinking about for a while? Will and I always talk about getting another dog but never actually can take the leap lol
Thank you, Brittany!! I can’t wait to post more about her!! We (mostly me, ha) were thinking about a pup for about a year before we brought her home! I hope you and Will take the leap when you’re ready!! Would you get another dog like Popcorn, or one totally different in breed/size/etc?!
She’s so little and adorable! Congratulations!! I hope you are sleeping through the night again soon! 🙂
Thank you, Rach!! I seriously cannot wait for a full night of sleep, ha!!
