My parents are jet setting around the Caribbean for 10 days, rude- so that means that Kevin and I are (happily!) on Brady duty.
Since it’s snowing like crazy, we decided to bring the big man to our house for a few days to avoid the shoveling we would have to do at my p’s (the one time of year I am so friggin’ thankful for my complex fees).
For the most part it has been a smooth transition- he’s super easy & happy everywhere.
But, ugh- it’s such a hassle to take him out when he needs to do his business. Since we live in a townhouse, we share a backyard with our neighbors and it’s not fenced in. I’m wayyy too nervous to let him outside on the “honor system” & with the 6+ inches of snow, it’s a giant pain in the ass for me to take him in the backyard by leash.
So pretty much our only option is a walk around the block-
5-6 times a day-
In the below freezing temps-
In the disgusting snow/slush.
Man, I give you pet owners without a fenced in backyard so much credit! As much as I love Brady, it is such an annoyance to get all outfitted & go outside & freeze my ass off multiple times a day. You are all much better people than I am!
Thankfully, that is the only downside of our 10+ day dog ownership & I am pretty sure that the nightly puppy snuggles make up for it 10x over!
Hope everyone is staying warm!
Side note, funny Brady story from last night (this morning?):
Brady crawled into bed with Kevin & I when we headed up around 10:30 last night. No prob, we loved it! The three of us fell asleep very quickly, but around 4:30 this morning I woke up to the sound of Brady clawing at the window in our bedroom- which ugh, means that he needs to pee.
I begrudgingly got up, put on a bunch of layers to brave the single digit temps, & took him outside to do his business. He was quick thank god and we rushed back into the warm house.
While I was taking off my gazillion layers- Brady ran upstairs as quickly as he could. When I finally got up there a few minutes later, I noticed that he was happily situated in my preemo spot in bed.
I am now wondering if that was his plan all along.
