So my first night was a not a fun one. I was up all night trying to find a comfy position in which to sleep. Normally I can sleep in a puppy pile in the weirdest positions but these contraptions they have on my legs (and it goes across my back too) keep getting in the way. I finally found out that using my foster sister Belle (who, we found out, also came from Florence, SC) as a pillow is great. Sometimes I have to remind her not to lay ON me but for the most part it works out. I can be scrappy when I want to. My foster family was already familiar with my desire to sleep in bed with them so I am hopeful that they let me do that tonight. I sleep much better that way. They say they are breaking all of their rules for me, but honestly, I am pretty darn cute so who can blame them? I FINALLY figured out how to go to the bathroom. I know everybody thinks that puppies will go everywhere but I have better manners than most puppies and prefer to go outside. Now that I am able to stand (sort of), I can do a little bobbling and get my business done. TMI? Sorry. One thing I miss is sleeping on my back. The one time I tried my foster family said I looked like the dog from "Something About Mary." Well because of the hard metal thing across my back I couldn't lay on my back so that's out for now. I've gotten so much better in the last 24 hours. I know how to get up to a sitting/standing position and can even hobble a little bit. I've started to cut back on the pain meds (although I still ask for those yummy little beef pockets that they come in) and take my antibiotics like a good pup. Heck, who am I kidding, if they put nails in one of those beef pockets I'd eat it. That's it for now. More later. Woof.
