And Mia... oh boy. So I was sitting in my new apartment all alone after moving in. I had nothing in there except a cot and a pillow and a computer. So of course I am thinking 'I can get a new dog!' I knew it was going to be hard living alone with Summer and her SA. She did much better with another dog around so that was my excuse... Started poking around online and emailed a few breeders about adults they had as well as talking to a rescue about a pap they had (who turned out to have a bite history). Mia's breeder replied and said she didn't think the adult would work for me but this puppy might. So we talked a bit and I just decided to go for the puppy. It was pretty impulsive to be honest. We went and picked Mia up and she was very unsure of me. We sat on the couch at the breeder's and Mia started warming up after a couple minutes. Then she was being cute and playful and I decided to take her home. So my sister and I loaded her up into the car. All was good until we got about halfway down the driveway. Then the screaming started. Oh the screaming... About two miles later the puking started. The screaming and the puking lasted for pretty much the entire near 7 hour drive. So that was a fun start to things. Got her home and she played with the other dogs well. Then screamed all night. Literally all night. For weeks. But about three days in the two of us were playing in the yard and she looked up at me while she was zipping all around me with a big grin on her face and I just knew. From then on it got easier even though she was still screaming all night long and still just plain trouble.
