Meet Baby Joey

If you follow my Instagram & Snapchat. Then you might know that recently my two German Shepherd/ Lab Mix’s welcomed a litter of 6 puppies.

It was a very long and wonderful 7 weeks, getting them ready for their forever homes. I originally had plans to blog about the experience of raising and caring for a litter of puppies. However, I soon discovered they demanded all of my extra attention. Especially in their first few weeks (When they need to be fed every few hours, even at night). Thus, those plans quickly fell to the wayside.

This week, however, marks that they are 11 weeks old (I know! They grow up so fast) and all of them have since found wonderful forever homes. Expect for… Baby Joey.

(One thing you should know is the litter consisted of 3 boys & 3 girls. So, of course, we had to take the opportunity to name all the puppies after the friend’s characters. haha)

We have decided this is an only litter of puppies we will be allowing our two full grown Shepard’s to create, thus we (JUST) had to keep one of their puppies. (& Yes that now means we have five dogs… please insert very wide-eyed face. That being said we love them all and are blessed to have them, so it’s not a bad thing. Except perhaps for my floors, which I have just recently gifted a new vacuum.)

Now, that we are only looking after Baby Joey I wanted to document his training, adventures and all the wonkiness that comes with a new puppy.

This is Baby Joey. Our 11 week old, adorable ball of fluff.

Joey was named due to his passion for food. Much like his namesake he is floppy, funny, adorable and has an appetite to match. So he is, of course, a big pup! At 6 weeks, he was the largest of his brothers and sisters weighing in at 10 pounds. We have an inclining he will be larger than his dad (Oynx). Who weighs in at 55 pounds, and is slenderly built. He defiantly is built more sturdy like his mom (Bella) who weighs in at 60 pounds.

Being our new addition to our family has defiantly been entertaining. & I am so excited to share his growth with all of you!

Till next time! –

Hello. My name is Victoria. Born and raised in New Mexico. I have experienced my fair share of houses. However, it is here, in this self-titled blog, that I have truly found my home. Here I document everything I love. (& that is a lot) I find life intoxicating. Everything from places to a good read (shoot-even bad reads) food, makeup, experiences…my life. I document here. In hopes of trapping the beauty of the world, I see around me. I have been told I see the world through rose-colored spectacles. & I intend to share it that way. Here I hope to discover, discarded and rediscover who I am, how I interact with the world, and who I inspire to be. I hope you find joy in my writing, and hopefully, you also will write something to me.
