The “Getting Over Him” singer opened up about her new four-legged friend during a recent appearance on the Get Real with Caroline Hobby podcast, admitting her new role as a puppy mom was taking a toll on her. 

“I understand why moms need nannies. I need a puppy nanny,” she joked, adding that she can’t seem to get anything done around the house with little Opry needing so much attention.
