Everything take twice as long with a puppy. So it's been a while since I had a puppy. The first time I was in a 1 bedroom apartment (3rd floor). The second time I was in a rental house on a postage stamp with a fenced yard. This time I'm on "acreage" with lots of projects and some small livestock so I actually have morning chores beyond take care of the dogs and make myself presentable for work. My morning routine has gone from 45 minutes (3 dogs, 1 cat) to one hour (+rabbits and quail) to two hours (+one puppy). Just makes me laugh. It'll get better as she learns the routines and once I don't have to wake up in the middle of the night for a puppy potty break. But it was a little bit of a shock this morning!
