This is the reason why I started a blog and then almost abandoned it. Her name is Cocoa and she is a chocolate Labrador puppy and right now is 13 weeks old. So cute and also a handful!

We were a little impulsive with this decision, we had been talking about how we got enough space and everything, and my husband wanted this kind of dog. We didn't research on what to expect from labradors and just went ahead and went to see them. Of course we fell in love right away with this gorgeous puppy! And brought her home just a little before she was 8 weeks old.

We weren't prepared, and we had to improvise her a house ( which she destroyed later). And buy her food, a couple of toys, get her a blanket, etc....

In the end, we are so happy to have her! She is our little furry baby. And she is so smart!! She already knows several commands like sit, down, give paw, come, fetch, up, stay. Some of them need practice, and some discipline because I'm sure she knows but sometimes she just doesn't want to do it. We are working on "out", "kiss" and "let go".

The biggest problem is that she bites A LOT! Hands, shoes, pants, whatever... And we don't know how to teach her not to. Seriously, I don't know what to do, sometimes I correct her and she gets mad and bites even harder!!

But bottom line, how could you not love this cutie?
I'm sure she will be a big part of this blog :)

**this is the first time blogging from my phone, so I don't know how it will turn out once I post it**

Rainy Season

Today the sun finally came out today after 10 consecutive days of rain.

Ten whole days of rain,  it was the longest in years! All day would be dark and cold, sometimes foggy. Water came down non-stop, as rain or just a little mist or "pelo de gato" (means literally cat's hair, because of how tiny the drops are). I kind of like this weather, so nice to stay home, watch movies, eat soup, drink hot chocolate and just cuddle, but this time was a little too much.

Usually I don't like to wear sweaters but this time I had to take out of the closet sweaters, scarfs, socks and boots to go out...
My husband and I had a nice coffee date, very according with the weather, but ended up eating a lot more than we planned. It was very nice, we had a good time :)

Also, with all the humidity, we had to get a dehumidifier for our closet, mold was invading everything!! It's so depressing when you want to wear something special and then realize that it has white spots or smells like its been there forever.  Hopefully this will solve the problem, I neeeeeed this to work.

We're still in the rainy season, but a little sunshine in the mornings is better! A summer-like weekend would be perfect :)

This is my first post ever.  I don´t know where to start.  Creating a blog was way more complex than I thought it would be.
I guess I'll start introducing myself.  My name is Gaby, I married the love of my life last december and graduated from college this august, right know I'm unemployed, but looking forward to find a job sometime soon.  I've been reading a couple of blogs lately that have inspired me and are really nice to read, so I thought I could write too, doesn´t have to be deep or anything, just about what happens any day, what I think and/or what I feel.
Also, I decided to write in English, this way anyone can read this (if somebody ever does...) and I can practice a little bit this language,  if something is wrong with the spelling, or the tenses or the writing in general, please correct me :)

Let's see how this goes...
