Sleepless nights

Our puppy came home last night. We have officially changed the name to Maggie because we received some frowns about the name Jane. At any rate, she's adorable, and definitely the cutest when sleeping. It's too bad she doesn't sleep much. She had us up hourly last night to take her to the bathroom. She would cry and yelp until someone took her outside. Then she just wanted to fall back asleep in our lap, but we're strict parents, so back in the crate she went. I sure hope she starts sleeping for 2-3 hours at a time! I feel like I have a newborn but get no maternity leave!

Scout must be reading your blog and deciding to let us not feel left out on the lack of sleep - since there've been thunderstorms EVERY NIGHT this week, neither Carrie nor I have gotten to sleep through the night since Scout has been FREAKING OUT and insisting upon sleeping ON TOP of us.

*yawn*

Not quite the same as having a kid, but definitely tiring. Good luck.

Basic reaction from my fellow dog-owners at work:

"Yeah, sounds 'bout right."
"Sucks to be you."
"Ohhhh, she's so PRECious!"
"Bummer, well good luck with that! Where's my TPS report?"

Maggie is a little too close to Meagan. Don't know how comfortable I am with that...
