The Pups are 3 years old today. I guess i shouldn’t call them “the pups” anymore since, well, they are adults now. But, they’ll always be pups to me. Theodore “Teddy” Bear, Mowgli Joseph, and Lux Roxanne are one of my greatest achievements. I didn’t know how to raise an animal from the very moment it was born at all. Every experience was met with horror and excitement. I showed them how to drink, how to eat, how to play, how to bark, how to go up the stairs, how to go down the stairs, how to stay home alone, and how to sleep on their own. I did a horrible job on a couple things, but i did amazing at a lot of other things. They wore me out, and they made me feel defeated over and over again. Teddy is scared of every noise. Mowgli can’t do car rides, even if its three minutes. Lux listens to Lux. They have bad habits that sometimes i feel like even i can’t break out of them. However, Teddy is the smartest dog I have ever raised. He’s the Houdini of the household and as clever as they come. Mowgli is the father figure. He’s protective, obedient, and gives the greatest hugs a girl could ask for. Lux is a brilliant mastermind. She figures out ways to smuggle treats to her bed without notice and she raised Lucy completely on her own. They are great dogs. And as much as i’d like to take full credit for that, they’ve definitely grew into their personalities all on their own. One’s i’m proud of.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Pups. I love you. Please stop eating my shoes.
Guys. The Pups are 2 years old. For those who have followed me for years, this should make you feel old. It sure as hell made me feel that way, lol.
I haven’t posted any updates about The Puppies, in what feels like forever. If you’ve followed me in the past two years, you already know the story about them and I wanted you to get an update video of how much they’ve grown. They’re over a year old now and have grown up with quite the personality. Mowgli is the biggest and definitely took on the yorkie side, Teddy is the skinniest with the longest corse hair, and Lux looks exactly like Rufio in the face. They’ve been living with my mom on the apple farm enjoying every aspect of space. I miss them all the time and when I visit them during the week I always get tackled down to the floor. Especially since Lily and Jackson McGrady (the two golden retrievers in the video) jump on me as soon as I walk in the door. (Also to note, you can tell who the favorite is at the end, Rufio is the only fucker in a sweater).
Now for my newer followers, you’re probably wondering who these dogs are since you only see Rufio. I had a teacup Yorkie named Mattie that I rescued, who Rufio ended up knocking up days before his vet appointment to get neutered. She didn’t survive after giving birth to 3 puppies. Her uterus burst and I had to put her down. It was the most horrible day in the world, I had three newborn puppies and the vet wanted me to give them up. I felt obligated to take care of them since Mattie didn’t survive, these were her babies, I just couldn’t. So there I was, no idea how to take care of new born puppies, looking up every single thing possible on raising them on my own and completely freaking out. Every two hours I bottle fed them, taught them, kept them warm, and raised them all while documenting the process on tumblr. I’d like to think I did a good job, they think they’re humans and have the most quirky personalities.
So they are doing really great you guys. I feel like its my little personal achievement, raising dogs from 1 day old to the grown big pups they are now. And if you want to really see the whole blast from the past moment I provided the 3 videos I uploaded on tumblr when they were weeks and months old. You should look at them in order before you play this one. Its a trip.

Lucy, 4 months. Also known as, “Lucifer.”
I haven’t taken any pictures of her since she was 8 weeks old, a lot has changed in between that time. She’s gained long hair and a curly tail. Not to mention her need to tear everything up including shoe laces and, well, anything that resides on the floor. She’s spoiled by the other dogs so she pretty much thinks she can get away with murder. Which, to be honest, she probably could. She’s so bad. But incredibly adorable.
