Last night was the first night Dog has slept straight through since coming to live with us 2 weeks ago. I now have a slight understanding of the relief parents feel when their babies finally start sleeping soundly. I’m hopeful (probably prematurely) that this means no more midnight wake up calls to take her outside so she can wander around aimlessly.
Dog use to live in a kennel situation, as such, she is use to doing what ever she wants whenever she wants. Meaning she wakes us up to play at odd hours, sleeps when we want to play with her and adamantly refuses to go the washroom when we would like. Slowly she is getting use to abiding by a stricter sense of time which she’s not sure she likes, however on the flip side she also gets to enjoy things like the couch, dog park and stealing expensive meat off the counter!
