What it feels like to NOT have a puppy

These last few months have been the strangest of my life. With Hobart living happily on the sunny shores of North Carolina and Dembre continuing to work hard in Minnesota and no puppy for me to raise right now I feel kinda useless.

I'm getting another puppy in May, but that feels like forever away. After Hobart's release last month I felt exhausted and kinda disappointed after a year and a half of hard work and no graduation. Now I'm starting to realize how much I miss having a puppy around the house.

With all of Hobart's quirks and the business of life I lost my true puppy raiser's vision. I lost sight of the truth of why I was puppy raising. It's always been about being a blessing and getting to have something to remember. I don't want to waste my high school years doing normal teenage things. Making a difference isn't that hard once you take the first step.

I honestly haven't missed anything more than I've missed these last few months away from CCI. I really an looking forward to a NEW start in puppy raising and a new chance to reach out to someone who is really looking forward to some extra independence.

Dembre and Hobart are happy now and so am I,  but it's time for a new journey. This may be my last pup for awhile (due to school and work and travel) and I want to make it count!

I can't wait to begin again!!!

  1. I hear ya! Being puppyless is a horrible feeling! I didn't know about Hobart, so sorry, but He is probably much happier now and doesn't have all the stress to deal with. Congrats on getting a third in May! Hopefully, I might have my fourth by then too!
