Having a rough week finish work tomorrow and have 3 weeks holiday before my maternity leave starts as my house is upside down at the minute and would like to get organised as i have loads to do. My daughter is 7 and been the centre on my universe so she has her bedroom and the second bedroom as a playroom, packed full of stuff and painted pink! Really needing to have a big clear out.. which I am prepared for but what i wasnt prepared for was my dog (wether hormones or not) getting on my nerves!
Hes 7 months old and we got him slightly before i found out i was expecting. If i had of known I would have postponed getting him. He is so lively and jumps all over everyone when they come to visit, and if i put him out he barks so much the neighbours complain. He has chewed the lino in the kitchen and just the other day i came home from work to find he had chewed his way through the bottom of my kitchen cupboards which floored me and i burst into tears and ran out of the house! dramatic I know lol. I used to be so house proud and loved having people over but he has plucked all my cusions and ripped the bottom of my leather sofa leaving a wooden hole, its so bad my friends and family dont visit me now as they cant get peace to sit and have a coffee with him going mad. My partner (knowing how stressed out i was with the dog) called me today at lunch and said there was a woman is his work that has 2 other dogs and she only works mornings so is there most of the day, she would have time to spend with him and he would have a better life with her, as I know when baby arrives I will have even less time than i do now. She has a big back garden and is involved with rescue dog charities. I know I would be making the right decision for him but I just feel so bad Im trying to convince myself, but i just cant imagine having a newborn baby, loads of people over to visit him and my dog going mad torturing people and barking not to mention he would bark during the night as wel I am making the right decision arnt I??
Sorry for going on again... need reassurance! xx
