Wasn't Minnie just the cutest puppy ever? It helps to remember this three years down the track, because this week she's been in the dog house. She's been waking up through the night and whining to be left out of the laundry and it has been taking its toll on our precious sleep. It's like having a new baby in the house - are they too hot / too cold / thirsty / need the toilet etc etc etc. We've brought her kennel into the laundry, hoping this will keep her warm and adjusted dinner time and water intake. Now, either we just didn't hear her last night or she managed to get through until 6am this morning. We are so proud of her! And the relief of a full night's sleep - alleluia!
