Zoe Report III, Feb 15, 2022

Zoe was up at 2:30 a.m. and back asleep much faster than Mom was. I’ve started going to bed at 10:30 to get 4 hours of sleep, then take her outside for a pee when she wakes up and cries to be taken outside, play for awhile, then head back to bed where she falls asleep cuddled as close to my ear as possible and, fully awake, I do my blogs and Wordle before going back to bed at 4:30. Then up at 8 to feed the other critters.

She now has the run of the house, comes running when I make a kissing sound, comes to whatever room I’m in. When I take her out front to pee, she makes a beeline for the unfinished cat food and goes into a shivering frenzy over it until I put it up in the cupboard. She’s also been out without a leash but carefully watched, to communicate with Diego and Morrie. Diego follows her everywhere, nuzzling her nose, and is very careful with her. 

Morrie ignores her completely but just today came over and went nose-to-nose for a small while and was careful with her. She walked over to the pool to see if Catherine was there but when she wasn’t, backed away. I’ll never let her out near the pool alone until she’s big enough to swim and use the stairs out of the pool. She weighs almost 2 pounds and is a very smart girl and fast learner.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Oh, motherhood is just not meant for us older folks~! How old is she~? Will she get much larger~? She kind of looks like a “Rat Terrier”, but that is difficult to tell in a puppy, do you know her background~?

      I think part chihuahua but don’t know the father. She looks exactly like Frida, who was a golden retriever mix, but Zoe is much much smaller. We’ll see what she turns into. Her feet are tiny. She is one and a half months old.
