Here’s what happened when I babysat a puppy lately. First, I learned to get my electric cords off the floor or risk them chewed right through! But the real lesson was in setting an alarm so I could take him outside.
Each hour my alarm sent me outside with the puppy for a few minutes. I didn’t take my phone because I had to watch to see if he “did his business”.
Here’s what I noticed:
- The hours went by fast and soon I worked a little harder to be productive before the next alarm went
- I sometimes stayed outside longer than puppy needed to – appreciating the fresh air and change of scenery
- I stood more and sat less,
