I am not as young as I was.
I am not as fit as I was.
I am not a mobile as I was.
I am not as quick as I was.
I do not sleep as well as I did.
In short, I’m knackered.
Maya is a gem, but both of us are shattered.
She is so good, and when you think she has only been with us four days, she is learning fast, and we are making good progress.
We were so proud of her today at the vet’s, even more so that we were out for over three and a half hours and she was brilliant. We had a little walk in town, she met lots of people, and everyone thought she was gorgeous. And she is, but then we’re bias.
When we got home, the first thing I did was take her out into the garden and she did a wee. Such a good girl.
Then I go and blow it by not being quick enough when she was telling me she wanted to go out and we had an accident. Not her fault.
We have a pattern developing………… we’ll go to bed and she’ll wake us up around 12.30, then again round 3.30. Hubby lets her out the first time, I do the second. This morning, she then slept on until 6.35, rolled over but didn’t wake up until an hour later. I got dressed, took her out and she did a wee for me. She’d also done a poo at 3.30, but nothing at half past twelve, however, she will always be given the opportunity. We are remembering and learning as much as she is.

The good thing is that this phase should not last long, and hopefully when she’ll do a wee for us before bedtime, we might get a longer night’s sleep. Maggie was younger and smaller when we got her, so potty training was easy as I could scoop her up and take her outside. We would get up at 2am and take her out as a matter of course. Now, we have to read Maya’s timetable and adjust for the interim until we can guide her into ours.
Anyway, I haven’t done as much in my blog today as I usually do on a Monday mainly because I am just so tired. So, I am taking a breather of sorts, and might not be around as much for the next few days. The 3TCs are scheduled as is my Fibbing Friday, but I will still access my blog for pingbacks and comments, plus do a brief Today is…….. that’s the only way I can keep track of the days!!
Bear with me…………………
