MØ6: THE FIRST Week With Alaska


I've grown up with dogs. Lots of dogs. I think there was even one point where we had 12 dogs and 2 litters of puppies (so... maybe 20 altogether). 

And look, Alaska is sweet, funny, playful, loves a good kiss as and a cuddle.

But she is a serious amount of work. The potty training... oh man, the potty training. I feel like many years from now I'll have flashbacks to this -- the pooing, the peeing -- and I'll wake up screaming in the middle of the night, drenched in my own sweat, and I'll cry.

"Are you okay?" my wife will ask from behind me.

But I won't hear, I'll be lost in my personal 'Nam, shaking as I relive the memories, the smells.


But yeah, she's sweet.
