I learned that I need to really focus on patience right now. I have a nine-week-old puppy. We are at the start of our second week together. I’m completely exhausted from lack of sleep—it’s my first puppy (and dog) except for childhood dogs. He’s sweet most of the time but gets wild, biting, and growling “zoomies” often. I’m trying to ignore the behavior I don’t appreciate and reward the moods I do.
