New Dog

Recently we visited the SPCA and became the proud parents of Max.  He is a 1 year old Staffie Mix, and needless to say it has been hell trying to train him.  Don't get me wrong he is freaking sweet!  He is always happy, jumping around, and playing.  We knew that it would be tough, especially considering this is a second pet and he's still a puppy. 

 We have been working on crate training him.  First, we brought a plastic kennel.  He has become a magician twice in that kennel.  The first time he got out he managed to chew up tennis shoes, ear buds, and left a ton of drool on my couch.  The second time was even worse.  He chewed a hole in the side of the kennel, I have never seen anything like this.  He then proceeded to chew up the cord to my Bose system, an Xbox Controller, and paper.

It's kind of like having a new baby in the house, but this baby is becoming very expensive.  We have tried chew toys like the Kong and bones but he grows tired of them very quickly.  We have tried walking him to help him lose some of that energy but it does't work.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep him from chewing?

My Introduction

Well I have offically started blogging.  I have sat for the past few days trying to think of a title.  Let me start by saying I am a very picky person.  I tend to think of great ideas but end up killing them before they come to life. I think it is the fear of failure, or maybe the fact that I am super shy.  Nonetheless, I am beginning to blog about my everyday life.  I have seen blogs that try to focus on certain topics, but I don't think I will be able to stick to writing about one thing.  I'm not quite sure how this is supposed to work, so I hope to get it right.

Now for my introduction.  Hi, I'm Tamille!  I have been married since I was 19 years old, I am now 28.  Yep, that's a long time and I am thankful everyday for my husband.  We also have three little boys:  Jaylen is 9, Jeremiah is 7, and Derrick (DJ) just turned 3.  On top of all of this we have 2 dogs, Max and Leo.  Yes, this is a full house!  I also work full time on top of all of the excitement listed above.  Over the course of this blog you will hear plenty about marriage, kids, work, daily news, etc.  I am thinking of this as a type of therapy.  So with that said, I hope you enjoy and nice to meet you!
