DD got a new dog

She has been talking to a lady about a mini doxy that she has been trying to find a home for a couple of weeks.  Today they went and met the little guy and decided to adopt him.  He's 4 years old and is good with kids and cats.  His name is Snickers and he's dappled or something like that. I'll get a picture of him when dd sends me one.  Peyton has wanted a little dog to sleep and play with for a long time so I'm sure they will be buddies in no time.

Yes Brooke and Peyton are both so excited to get a little dog that they can play with and love.

I told dd to send me some pictures of him, so hopefully she will get a chance to.  Yes that is a cute name.  DD didn't like it, but I think it's cute.  DD had a friend in high school that had a doxie and they called him TW that was short for Teenie Weenie.  LOL  She loved that little guy.

DD almost adopted a little female doxie from the shelter a few years ago and her dh said no, so she has been kind of keeping her eye out for a small dog that was good with kids and cats and housebroken. I think Bear broke us both of having a puppy again.  He wasn't a bad puppy, but he was just a lot of work and training.

Hopefully having a smaller dog will be more manageable than Bear was and he is already 4 years old.  Every kid should have a dog to grow up with as they are so much fun.  I'm excited for them.

Yes I agree that every kid should have a dog to grow up with.  Dogs certainly make kids' lives special.  Yes Snickers should be trained somewhat and won't be as much work as a puppy.

So far Snickers is working out really good and they love him.  He'll be here tomorrow for Christmas so I will getpictures.  I have a crate to put him in if he gets overwhelmed.  DD says he likes to be right there with someone all the time.

That's wonderful that Snickers is settling in and doing really well.  Can't wait to see the pictures!

I remember when I got a puppy for Christmas when I was little.  I was so excited.
