My Mother's Day Present

Chad took me to see my potential Mother's Day present this evening...
How cute is she????

She is a mix between a Havanese and a Yorkie (the hybrid puppy name is Havashire).  And she is only 3 weeks old right now.  A guy Chad works with's dog decided to make a baby with the neighbor's dog...oops.  They were both full bred and they instead made this squishy little girl.  Right now she is almost all black with a brown tummy and a tiny dot of white on her toe.

This is her sister...who is also available!  (Scout wants us to get both of course!)

They are still so new that they are tummy scooting and barely have their eyes open.  That is mommy next to them.  She was such a good mommy.  Her babies were never out of her site but she was also great with us holding them...even as strangers.  She was protective but never got mean.

So now I have to decide if we are actually going to get one.  We have so much going on in our lives right now...but at the same time this is the type of dog that I have always wanted.  The whole situation is perfect because it isn't coming from a store (puppy mills), or a breeder (super expensive).  We have always thought our next dog would come from the shelter but the mommy is actually an abandoned dog.  The dogs will be between 9 and 12 pounds full grown.  Phog, our Golden, is suprisingly good with little dogs.  Our neighbors have one that is a minature Yorkie and they actually play together.  Phog the 120 pound dog and Katie the 3 pound dog...and Katie usually wins! :)

Help!  What do I do?  Do I take the leap and get the puppy?  Do I think rationally and not ad another thing to my already complicated life? 

I'm going to sleep on it. 

I wish I could snuggle that little body to help me make my choice...

  1. I think it sounds like your gut is telling you to get this dog so I say go for it. I think the addition of a puppy to your pack would be great for bring more joy and good energy into your home considering the emotional trials you guys have been through. I bet Phog would love it, too!
