So we got a puppy. I know. We're crazy.

we had casually mentioned last weekend "hey, maybe we should think about getting a dog" 

then on Monday, M came home early and was causally looking at dogs on google images and I said "hey, let's go to the pound for fun and look around."

and we talked on the way there about how he had rescued his dog, Lucky, that stays at his parents house but it had taken him months and 8 trips to 3 different pounds to find and choose him. and "hey, this could take awhile but it'll be fun"

and then we saw and played with and fell in love with this munchkin about 20 minutes after arriving.

and then we sat on a bench at the pound and talked about what this would mean and should we get her and oh my gosh, really?! did we really just find a puppy on the first trip to the pound?! are we sure?!
at the pound when we found her

and then we played with her again in their little visiting area. and then we were sure and we paid our money and rescued this sweet 6-month(ish) old Beagle Mix from the evil drug that would end her life. 

we picked her up on Saturday after her surgery on Friday. and she has been ours ever since. 
the day we got her
the first day she was SO good. didn't eat anything, didn't pee in the house, didn't rip anything up. 

its been all downhill since....

(still doesn't pee in the house other than once that seems to have been a fluke. she's good about waiting til we walk her.)

but its really hard to stay mad at this face:

she even knows when she's in trouble and hides her little face...
left: yesterday when i got home from the hospital and she had found everything within reach to play with
right: yesterday when she started barking and growling at me while i was taking pics of her with the dSLR
today she is in major big-time trouble after bolting out the door and running free for over 20 minutes while I chased her/tried to catch her in 90 degree weather wearing black skinny jeans. i was on the verge of passing out by the time I caught her and carried her home from the other side of the apartment complex. she is not on my good side right now but its hard not to love her anyway...

She's adorable!!

Sounds like you might want to look into crate training her. She may have separation anxiety and crate training is a good way to get rid of that.
