With the excitement of the new puppies arrival, I’m trying to prepare Bruce Wayne for this major lifestyle change. Just as much as I am excited, I believe it is only fair to try my very best at helping Bruce Wayne adjust.
You see, Bruce Wayne is not your average dog. I know everyone says that about their dog and they are not wrong. However, every time I tell someone about Bruce Wayne’s typical day, they always laugh and say how I’m so lucky to have such a chill and calm dog.
A typical morning for Bruce Wayne starts around 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. That is the time in which I will drag his fluffy butt out of bed. If he had his way, he’d sleep in bed until noon everyday. The days that I try and get him to start his days earlier, he’ll turn belly up in protest.
After he finally gets up, he’ll go potty and eat his breakfast. He is like clockwork everyday. He’ll pee once, poop once, eat and then poop again. His routine is down to a science. So much so that if he doesn’t follow that routine, I know something is up. Then, he runs right back to ….. You guessed it, my room and my bed. There, he’ll sunbath on the pillow next to the window for a few hours.
When it’s nice out, I will take him for a few walks throughout the day. I have to trick him, because Bruce Wayne will put the brakes on if I try to walk him around the block twice. So, instead, we just take multiple trips throughout the day. If it’s bad weather out, sometimes we go to Lowe’s Home Improvement store since they are dog-friendly and warm.
Each night, we are again like clockwork. Bruce Wayne eats dinner around 6:30 – 6:45 p.m., goes potty and right back onto my bed on his now infamous heating pad. Usually, we will watch television for a bit, then play. Out of all his toys and chews, his favorite toy is my left hand. Not my right, my left. Bruce Wayne is a very particular Chi-Chi! 😉
After playtime, I’ve began showing him videos of the puppies. Sometimes, I know he can see them and is watching them as his ears will go up and down and I’ll get some head tilts. Other times, he just simply doesn’t care, turns around and goes back to sleep. I’ve began referring to the puppies just as that, “the puppies”. I do not call them “doggies” because he has some odd anger towards that word. If I say the word “doggies” he will start growling and barking, even if he doesn’t see an actual dog.
With all that being said, I’m trying to “upset” his normal routine a little so that he won’t be a grumpy Chihuahua when the puppies need attention in the middle of the night. I’m doing all this, but knowing Bruce Wayne, he’ll just sleep through all the commotion. 😉
NEW Puppy Photos!
As you can see below, the puppies have opened their eyes! We are happy to report that all puppies have opened their eyes on their own without any issues. As you may or may not know, just because the puppies eyes are open, it does not mean that they can necessarily see. During this time, their retinas are still developing, so they heavily rely on their sense of smell.
This is also one of the reasons why the puppies are still kept to a enclosed, confined space. Within the next week or two, the puppies will be allowed to go into the playroom to explore, run and play. While we anxiously await some playtime photos and videos, enjoy these week 2 puppy cuteness photos!
