A Bundle of Joy - Furry Friday
We had previously been on a list for a bichon as hubby has allergies so we are limited to what breeds would work and those are never ever at our rescues (*all my previous animals have been rescues - I believe in them but I also believe people with allergies should be allowed pets too). Unfortunately, we have been waiting for several months with no news from the original breeder and several messages were left unreturned so we decided to start looking at other options. I came across this little guy in an online ad and we drove 1.5 hrs away to see him last night. He immediately walked right up to us and my heart melted. Keep in mind, I was not in favor of a poodle. All that I have met previously did not have the disposition of a dog that I wanted. His family was completely different. His dad was majestic and very friendly/happy and his mom very playful and happy. The only reason he was available as the original senior lady who had put a deposit on him when he was born decided she was too old to deal with a puppy so he became available. I brought a dog toy (one bought at Christmas time in anticipation of a puppy in our home one day) and he immediately decided he loved it. We could have brought him home last night but our house is not yet ready yet so instead I will be picking him up Thursday. He comes with his first shots and vet check and a year worth of dog grooming, although that is in a town 1.5 hrs away.
He is not fully potty trained yet, so there will be some work to be done but we are ready for that. As it is now official I decided to join in with Lorraine over at Clamco for Furry Friday, although this little cutie has hair and not fur I think no one will mind.
Any suggestions as to a name? In all likelihood hubby will pick the name as all my suggestions have been shot down so far but feel free to share what you think he should be named.
