I am about to loose my mind,lol. I am watching a 3 year old(who is currently on the crazy train..will explain at end of post) and a 6 month old english bulldog/pit bull mix. Holy cow can you say crazy! . I also have 2 foster kittens and she was trying to play with them. Well they weren't having any of that and swiped her on the nose she ran back to my whimpering. Now to train her leave it so that doesnt happen again,lol. My dogs are all on the couch being the good dogs they are, while I am running around like a chicken with its head cut off. I wanted a puppy but now I'm not to sure,lol. I may just stick with the older ones :D

here is Roxy





Crazy train- it is sort of like a sugar rush but not. He is on the non-stop go for about 4 hours and is jumping on and off couches, and doing things he knows he should not

Cuteface is how puppies get to adulthood in one piece!

I babysit my 3 year old niece every weekend. It's like inviting a tornado into my home. And she's fairly well behaved as 3 year olds go.

Oh it's easy to deal with a puppy and a 3 year old kid!

First, clear the dishes and put them in the sink. Remind the 3 year old no more snacks and put the tv on for her. Remove the beef bone the puppy has snuck out of a crate from said puppy, give puppy a treat in a kong and put the bone out of reach.
Find the dishsoap on the front lawn. Put the hose in the birdbath to flush the soap and bubbles out and explain that birds don't like bubble baths. Brush dirt off puppy and return both to the house. LOCK the front door to contain them.
Put soap in the sink. Locate the sound of the loud crash as the 3 year old attempting to turn the light on for her new pet frog. Carefully move large log in aquarium and recover said frog who has hidden beside the water dish and is not squashed. Sweep up floor, trade dustpan for toy with puppy.
Remove several electronic toys, one shoe and pjs from sink, wiping soap off and putting them away. Realize 3 year old has gone out the back door. Put puppy on leash and locate 3 year old who is now topless and drinking water out of a mikes hard lemonade bottle while standing on sidewalk. Wave to stuffy neighbors across the street. Move recycle bin out of reach.
Locate plug for sink in kid's bed and plug sink. Realize that 3 year old has discovered gravity and is demonstrating this to puppy with a roll of tp and stairs. Save part of roll and pick up assorted bits of paper from around the house as three year old and puppy play tug and run with remaining paper.
Set up xpen for puppy and put her in said pen with several chew toys on lawn. Apply sunscreen and bug spray to 3 year old, give her bubbles, sandbox, wading pool and bike to amuse herself. While she is busy, start weeding flower garden.
Bring puppy inside to bath the mud off of her, and drag 3 year old in the house so she isn't running at large while doing so. Bath mud and bubble solution out of puppy and hope the addition of sand doesn't mess up the tub drain. Change 3 year old into clean outfit by arguing over each and every detail.
Move xpen to front yard and omit bubbles, sand and wading pool as options. Sidewalk chalk and small toys will keep her amused. Work on weeds in front yard.
Remain calm when 3 year old announces that she pooped. Bravely ask where. Ignore the laughter from across the street from perfect lawn neighbors overhearing you ask why your child chose the lawn as a place to poop.
Use already pocketed poop bags and wonder if child is adopted or needs more human friends.
Put 3 year old on steps for time out. Abort any attempt to get things done and drink a full mikes.

I once made the mistake of babysitting 2 young greyhounds for a few days at the owners house. The greyhounds did not like that their owners were gone, and decided that all house rules do not apply with me... I was so tired by the end, and they had managed to make the entire house dirty(they brougt in a lot of mud from outside), broke pens on their new leather couch, and eat my shoes. Also, I wasn't told, but their door automatically locks, so i got locked out while on a walk with one of the dogs without a phone. One of their neighbors were nice enough to let me use thier phone.

omg you sooo made me laugh !!! this reminds of of watching my 3 grandkids ( ages 2,4 and 7 ) along with thier 5 year old yellow lab, 3 year old viszla , my poochon and my yorkiepoo !! One day the oldest 2 got into some paint in the garage ( they climbed through the doggy door from the yard ) and all 4 dogs were covered with mustard yellow paint!!! I seriously considered tossing all of them into the hottub with some shampoo but resisted the temptation. I was still cleaning up the mess when my son in law came home and he laughed so hard he cried. I was NOT amused !!

Then there was the time my 3 year old grandaughter got into the laundry room and "washed " the dog with a gallon of liquid laundry soap !! Again my son in law found us very amusing !!! Easy for him to laugh, he didnt have to clean up the mess !!!

Or how about the day one of the dogs killed a squirrel, Kalee , the oldest, came in and told me " grandma there is a dead squirell in the yard and Olivia is KISSING IT !! , I ran outside and sure enough Olivia was holding the dead rodent and was kissing its booboos better !!

Now my babies live 3000 miles away from me and I would gladly clean up all the messes just to have them close to me again !!!
