A Day In The Life of a Teyla

Here is a normal day; if dad works from home and mom goes to work.

10:00 AM-Wake up, bow to the world. I love to sleep in, and do not like to get up earlier than that.

10:03 AM-Attack the dad with my specialized sneak attack move; dad hides under the covers, I wiggle under to put my cold wet nose all over his face and chest and my favorite is when I get his armpit.

10:10 AM-Outside to greet the morning and water the grass and the other thing.

Helping the Grass Grow

10:14 AM-Wipe My Feet 

10:20 AM- Get my breakfast in my KONG, then the rest from the bowl, I always leave a bit so I can have another KONG or a mid morning snack.

10:40 AM-Whine at mom because she is in the kitchen making food before work.

10:45 AM- It’s either back to bed with dad either in the bed if he’s still in bed or in his office. If he’s in his office, I drag my blanket in there with him.

11:15 AM- Chew on my bed or blanket, or even go through dad’s trash can, that’s always fun and interesting.

11:30 AM- Bug dad while on a conference call, beg whine, jump on his lap, basically try to get him to look at me. Or watch what he’s doing.

12:00 PM- Lunch time, for dad anyway. I usually go water the grass again and get a stick.

12:05 PM- It’s nap time in the living room, this is when I get my pick of either the couch, dad’s chair, the ottoman, or my bed.

2:00 PM- Whine for dad to let me outside to water the grass and kill some evil sticks. Do some running of the fluffaloes, also known as zoomies, or even the rips (meaning ripping through the yard like a mad thing).


2:08 PM- Wipe my feet.

2:10 PM- Back to nap time in the office with dad, after chasing the kittehs under the bed.

3:30 PM-Mom shows up in a square little box dad calls his EEE Pad, whatever the heck that is.

3:45 PM-Nap time in the living room, I love choosing a bed to sleep on in there.

5:00 PM- Water time, the other thing, and more zoomies and stick killing.

5:08 PM-Wipe my feet.

5:09 PM- Tricks with dad for treats.

5:10 PM- Play time with dad. Play fetch, I try to get him to play Tug-o-War, but they don’t like it so much, they say I growl too much and get too rowdy, and that I get my teeths too close to their hands, and apparently they don’t like that…what do they know!

6:00 PM- Aw, nap time again!

7:00 PM-Find something to chew on.

I love me a nylabone

8:00 PM- MOM’s HOME! YAY!

8:03 PM- Scream at the top of my lungs and jump around like a mad thing, it’s hyper time! MOM’S HOME, MOM’S HOME, MOM’S HOME!

8:05 PM- Mom gives me treats when I sit, and lay down, and when I get down when I jump up, I love getting food!

8:20 PM- Dinner KONG! I love the dinner KONG cuz mom fills it up twice before leaving my to my bowl, and sometimes, they even let me lick their plates, but only if it’s safe.

8:30 PM- Water the grass, kill the sticks, zoom zoom zoom.

8:29 PM- Wipe my feet.

9:00 PM- After dinner nap on mom’s lap.

9:45 PM- Outside again, for the other thing!

10:00 PM- Play time with mom, fetch, fetch, fetch, fetch, fetch, fetch, fetch, fetch, fetch, etc.

11:00 PM- Water the grass, kill some sticks.

11:09 PM- Wipe my feet.

11:10 PM- Chase the kittehs.

Nappy Time

11:13 PM- Nap time on my living room bed or the ottoman.

11:59 PM- Growl at kittehs on other side of baby gate, whine and whimper, I want those kittehs!

12:07 PM- Pout for kittehs while laying on my bed.

12:30 PM-Water the grass.

12:39 PM- Wipe my feet

12:40 PM- Decide which is better Chase the kittehs, or get the treat!

12:41 PM- Get the treat 🙂

12:42 PM- Chase the kittehs.

12:42:30 PM- Run into kennel and wait for chew stick; it’s night night time 🙂

Skinny Minnie

Look at that little waist.

Our baby girl had such a tiny waist when we first got her. Barely any meat on her bones and a cough that could make anyone weepie. But guess what? She was not as quiet and calm as we thought. She was just that sick. The liquid antibiotic in chicken flavor did the trick! She loved it. Even licking the dispenser after each dose. Plus, the nice vet lady said only two doses a day and not to give her the cough medicine. She wanted Teyla to be able to cough up what was in her lungs and the cough medicine would suppress it and make it stick around longer.

Her energy picked up more than we could have ever dreamed of. Her puppy mentality finally came out. She began playing more, and she decided she didn’t like the crate so much anymore. Although warm and cozy, it was lonely.

We found out tug-o-war was her favorite game. And she was strong!  She has some tiny little pointy sharp teeths, and she liked chewing on stuff, mostly our hands. She still slept a ton, about 20 hours a day. Which is a bit more than a five month old puppy should sleep (about 18 hours) but she was still sick.

Our little Teyla still has the major runny nose, but the cough was almost all gone, except when she got a little too excited, or worn out. And sometimes when she’s sleeping, she wakes herself up with a coughing fit, super sad, and her sneezing is getting better, but more stuff seems to be coming along with those sneezes, which actually is a good thing because it means she is getting better. We are happy parents!
