I’d forgotten how much having a puppy is like having a two year old. She’s curious, doing new things everyday, has a two second attention span, makes a mess with her food and you can’t take your eyes off her for even a minute. On top of that she’s a two year old who has really sharp teeth and can run faster than you. Let’s just say she’s good for my stamina.
Her daily antics are funny, sweet and down right infuriating. Although even when she does something awful (like yarn nabbing and subsequent destruction) she is so cute it’s impossible not to love her.
Did you notice how big she’s getting? Moxie is four months old today and I can’t believe how much she has changed already. She can’t walk under Kona’s belly anymore, we had to adjust her collar again today and no matter how hard she tries to cram her whole body on my lap she keeps sliding off. When she first came home, one walk to the bus stop took 25 minutes are wore her out for hours. Now she needs 3 longer walks a day and does them in half that time.
While she may be growing up and changing, she’s still Moxie. She still talks up a storm (I’ve never seen a Basenji who baroos so much), likes to sleep with her head buried in the crook of your arm or under a blanket, and jumps first and thinks later.
Life with Moxie is full of laughs, cuddles, silliness and not much rest. Well, not much rest for us.
