So the boys and I are itching for a puppy again! I think it's because I've been helping our friend, Wanda with her dog. He's a Shi-Tsu. Since she broke her ankle Travis and I have been stopping by a couple times a week to let Jules out. We've also taken him to the groomers. (Travis thinks it was a hoot to have a dog ride with us in the car!)
I've been looking for breeders in the area. Jake won't let us get a Yorkie because he says they are too little. I like little - less food and smaller poop! I'm all about that! Of course we love our neighbor's dog and she's a Miniature Schnauzer. So we've kind of decided that a Miniature Schnauzer is what is best for our family. Unfortunately Schnauzers are harder to come by than Yorkies - and a bit more expensive. So right now we'll keep looking.
The other day Ashlee and I took Travis to The Puppy Cottage. It's a pet store that sells puppies - obviously! But not only do you get to see the cute little yappy fur balls, you can play with them in their little gated areas. They had a Yorkie that Travis had no problem getting on the floor with. I was surprised because the pup was teething and would just chew on my fingers, but Travis just pulled his hands away when the puppy tried to get his. Ashlee played with a Bull Mastiff pup. She was the cutest and very mild mannered. But Travis wouldn't get off the stool to play with her. Maybe she was already too big!
So I'm looking to book some more Scentsy parties so that I can set aside a bit of money for a puppy. I tried to explain to Wyatt how much it would cost. Once I got to nearly $1000 for the cost of the pup + vet + bed + carrier + food, etc it registered why we don't have one yet. But I will work hard so that we might be able to change that status soon!
