New here and to puppy hood

Well lets see i am a 27 year old housewife, no kids yet, and adopted my first puppy. I did have dogs as a child but two were adopted older and one was a puppy when i was still in school and more obsessed with myself then potty training a pooch.

I moved abroad to be with my husband, of now 3 years, it has been a wonderful journey. his family has been wonderful and supportive and i've had a great marriage thus far (and hopefully forever eh)

a year ago my husbands office asked him to move to mexico for a year to help the branch there get up to snuff...now a year later they have asked him to stay another year because it is doing so well and they need to train someone to take his place...i really have been pretty lonely here, granted all the traveling, being able to visit my family in the USA every few months instead of every 2 years is wonderful...but i suck at languages, barely have a hold on portuguese and i don't speak spanish at all...

so 0 friends, 0 family, 0 companionship other then internet games and my husband...I really needed more if i was stuck here another year...thus my wonderful husband surprised me for christmas and bought me the puppy I had been mooning over for 2 months every time we walked by the pet store on the way to the supermarket ( i walk everywhere because we don't want a car while abroad)

Sooo this is my very first puppy on my own as an adult, and all the responsibility headache and love that comes with him.

Enough bout me heres more on my new pup :


Name: Conan
Breed: miniature schnauzer
Age: 4 months
Sex: male
Personality: cuddle bug
Enjoyments : my lap, my lap, my lap, and if my lap isn't available waiting for it to become available


i am honestly pretty blessed with him,

-he doesn't chew on the furniture (knocks on wood)

-Doesn't poop in the house (pee is another matter, darn dog has a bladder of steel and will hold it over 8 hours just to wait to pee on the hard wood floors)

-Doesn't whine when i leave (bedtime he whines a little then i put an adam carolla podcast on and he quiets down, who knew my dog was a fan of adam lol)

-loves sleeping on my lap 24/7 if i let him

-loves long walks ( i take him for 30min- 1 hour walks 3x a day)

And is the cutest pup in the whole darn world

Attached a photos ^.^ so glad to be here where i can get some support when im going insane and somewhere i can gush over him without being looked at like a crazy nut

Hi MinniMommy. Glad to meet you. You'll never be lonely here at DF. Never have I met such a nice group of people, and I am sure you will too.
Enjoy it here and have fun.

Aww what a babe! He's very handsome. I'm glad you found a companion that can keep you company!

As for the spanish speaking don't feel bad, I'm half puerto rican grew up in a spanish household and still can only say Hi, how are you? Where's the bathroom? Bye.

My problems lies with the tenses of speaking to people in spanish. I understand what people are saying to me, I just become a complete dunce when it comes to talking.

Awe thank you all for the warm greetings. And kat, that is EXACTLY my problem. I can understand most but when it is time for me to open my mouth, my brain goes out on a vacation.

Lol is it sad that today is my birthday and i just wanted to go shopping for doggie stuff instead of stuff for me? Oh well, he's got me hooked on his cuteness couldnt help it, but now he has more toys then most children.....
