Ammon and I were yard sale-ing a couple Saturdays ago. We stopped at this crappy yard sale. All they had was boxes of junk. As we turned around to leave, I saw this puppy on the porch. She wanted to come down the steps but was timid about it because she was so small. I made a comment about how cute the puppy was and the lady in charge of the yard sale told me that I could take her for free. When I heard that, I went over and picked up this fuzzy, white, floppy eared puppy. It was love. Mutual love. I fell in love with her right there on the spot and she did the same. She was obsessed with me. I asked Ammon if we could keep her and it was obvious that he felt like I put him on the spot. The lady wrote down the name and phone number of her friend. (her friend was the one trying to get rid of the puppy) I told her that we would discuss it and I'd call her later. I said goodbye to the puppy and got in the car. We drove 30 yards to the stop sign and I couldn't go any farther. Ammon agreed that we could take her and I made him turn the car around. I stepped out of the car and the woman laughed that I was back so soon. She said, "I had a feeling you'd be back." : ) She emptied a small box and I loaded up the puppy and off we went. We were told that she didn't have any of her shots, and that she was a pomeranian, chihuahua mix.
She is a sweetheart and really LOVES us. She wants lots of love and attention which is a good thing because she has two little boys chasing her around every chance they get. We're still in the middle of housebreaking her which, I'm not gonna lie, sucks. I get frustrated in the mornings when I have to clean her cage and the linens in the cage. She's 9 weeks old, maybe 10 weeks now. Her appearance has changed a lot since we got her. She used to have adorable floppy ears and now they stick straight up. I wasn't a fan at first but now, it's growing on me. Life with a puppy is stressful but, seeing the way my boys love her makes up for all that.
