Default I think I crossed over to crazy

When my last German shepherd passed away 3 years ago, something was missing ... and it sucked

I was just looking around at pet finder and figured “ahhh wtf why not, let’s look for a new puppy”
2 weeks later and I got “authorized “ to rescue a puppy

I get to pick him up on Tuesday night ——BUT——

my wife is due on thanksgiving.

She is going to murder me

i apparently can’t ever just sit still and relax

I have had puppies and I have my first child, a 13 month old now.

Just from my limited perspective, but I'd agree with your crazy assessment.

Even crazier if this is a surprise to the wife. You definitely have big cajones!!

Don't you talk major life changes with your wife before hand? It depends on the wife how well this will go.

Eh. We did talk about it.
She knows ... but wasn’t overly happy. But happy.

She’ll hopefully be happy when we bring him home.
But not happy in the early morning

and just to habe zero sleep for 6 months

Hey, get the puppy. Don't worry about zero sleep, you're going to be up anyway.

You are already in the dog house so why not tell her about the bigger boat that should arrive the day after the due date.

Exactly. Mom and Dad will work their own issues out, but the kids will be fine!!

I bought my 32' boat a few weeks before baby #3 arrived. Told the wife, hey I can take the other two girls out so you and baby can sleep! Worked out well. I'd suggest that over a dog. You crazy.

I love dogs but our "on the go" lifestyle isn't conducive to having one. Owning a dog is like having a kid. My sister's dog just cost her almost $3,000 in emergency care last week, one of my brother's weiner dogs cost him $1,400 last month and my nephew dropped $1,000 the month before that. Nope, if we get anything, it will be an indoor/outdoor cat that we'll feed and give it a place to live.

we had a “care free/ on the go” lifestyle before we had our daughter.
It changed a little - but not much ; still go everywhere on a whim ... I am lucky to have my parents and in laws close so they can watch her if needed.

So... we got him last night
what was supposed to be an easy ride to get him turned into a cluster f
should be around 40 mins from my house to around Syosset Long Island turned into a hair over 2 hours.
I figured it out as we were on the Cross Bronx in stand still traffic that the Yankee game was going off in about 40 mins

Get passed there - smoothish sailing ...
go to the vet and sign the paperwork for the rescue ppl. Get said puppy - my daughter is ECSTATICALLY happy... wife looks happy, but is mad for sitting in car for 2 hours, pregnant and uncomfortable; she just hates everything now anyway
we ended up going to my cousins house a few blocks away from the vet to say hi - considering we are in the area, i figured what the hell... and they have a 1 y/o - so let the dogs go crazy and tire each other out

get him home in a little over an hour with typical GWB traffic - simple good.. no problem there -
get to the backyard and hes smelling around like normal and having a good time ( at 11pm)

go inside and same thing - nervously walking around and smelling etc etc

time to go to bed
he starts crying - in his crate -
wife gets frustrated and yells at me
she goes in my daughters room and shuts the door... and puts on the window unit ac to drown him out

1230 I am still up and now I put on the music channel on TV and he cries for 20 mins- then ends up going to sleep

i bring him out this am, does his business; all is good

i goto work and get a text " i cant do this , he peed in 4 places and cant bend over"

at least my daughter is currently happy with me
