Dobie Love: 3 Things

Yesterday I just got back from a much needed time at home with Dusty and Duke. I hadn't been home for a visit in over 1-1/2 months and it was glorious. I was able to cook my favorite things and smother my puppy (and husband!) with lots of cuddling. Although, after not being home for over a month I learned 3 things....

#1...My puppy isn't a puppy anymore....he's a dog!
7 months old and 82 pounds of pure Doberman.
Holy cow!
But trust me. He may look like a big Doberman, but he is still a huge BABY! A total goober. Goofy, fun and adorable in every way. I've missed this pup so much!

#2...The bed no longer has room for me. Apparently Dusty and Duke have become snuggle sleeping buddies and now that Duke is over 80 pounds, there is no room for me in the bed!
Looks like we are going to need a bigger bed!
And #3....Don't waste your money on a $30 stuffed monkey for your puppy when he can destroy it in 0.3245 seconds.

Duke originally had an old Ty Beanie Baby giant monkey that he loved dearly. In fact he loved it so much that he ripped it to shreds and then millions of little beanies became scattered across the floor taking about 1 hour to sweep up!
Dusty called and asked me to get Duke a new "monkey" from Toys-R-Us while I was in Billings before coming home to replace the old one. A lot of good that did! I was so excited to give Duke his new monkey and after a trip to the grocery store, I walked in the door to find the "monkey massacre" that had taken place in my living room. Poor monkey didn't even stand a chance! The poor monkey's fluffy guts were spread all around. The living room, dining room, the backyard, the bathroom and bedroom. Evidence of "the massacre" was everywhere! 

It's only 28 days until I'm finished with nursing school and 28 days until my life can return back to normal. I've missed Duke, Dusty and my life on the Hi-Line so much. My trip home was much needed and just the motivation I needed to finish the last stretch of school. It felt so good to get back in the kitchen and make some of my favorite foods. Only 28 days until I'm back to cooking and more importantly....blogging! I've missed it and you guys so much!


  1. Oh what a little love muffin!! And so much dooming!! I can't keep any toys around for Huck either haha Can't wait for you to come back to the real world and be done with all your hard work! Keep it up almost there :)

    1. Thanks Megan! Believe me...I am so ready to be done with nursing school. How much longer does Ben have? Any tips on what toys work best for pups that destroy everything?!?!? LOL!

  2. Oh my goodness our beagle Buddy tore up so many toys! Silly dogs! Congratulations on finishing nursing school, that's such a huge accomplishment it will be done before you know it! Then you'll have to move the dog our of your side of the bed!
