At the start of summer we had our newest member of the family join us, our sweet yellow lab pup, Georgia. The funny thing about dogs is that I never considered myself much of a dog person. Yes, I like dogs for sure, but I have never gone as far as to call myself a “dog mom” and most of the time our previous dogs have gravitated towards my husband. So in essence, my dog and I coexisted nicely, but we both knew that my husband was the favorite of the group. However, when we got Georgia, I think the timing of everything aligned and the very first weekend that we got our puppy, we ended up spending the whole weekend and the following weekend after that at travel baseball tournaments, which in turn made it so that I spent a lot of time “mothering” this eight week old puppy. She cuddled in my lap most of those weekends and happily trotted down the line of chairs to visit all the parents on our team, then after 20-30 minutes of play, she’d come back down and cuddle up in my lap for a two hour nap.
Georgia’s a LOT bigger these days and I have completely relearned everything there is to know about taking care of a puppy, but after all those motherly cuddles she got used to at baseball games, she now is most definitely a certified “momma’s puppy.” She follows me wherever I go! I go to the bedroom to lie down, she’s up on the bed next to me cuddling. I go into the kitchen to make a cup of coffee, there she is at my feet. I go to use the bathroom…you get the idea.
Georgia has brought a lot of joy to our lives and that puppy energy never ceases to amaze us all. We have an acre and a half and she explores it all daily, running and playing and finding sticks to bring up to the deck to chew on.
And to celebrate, Amazon sent us an awesome box of treats to honor the new launch of The Pack Amazon Prime Video as an ultimate celebration for dogs and humans everywhere! To say Georgia was excited for her goodies was, well, an understatement….just try taking photos of a an overly excited, rambunctious six month old puppy and see how they turn out (#notgood).
So as we all start to hunker down for the colder winter months and craziness happening around us, one way to cozy up and enjoy some family fun is to check out The Pack on Amazon Prime! We can’t wait to dig in this evening and see what it’s all about!
