It's Thankful Thursday and today I want to share what has made me so filled with gratitude today. The other day, I asked you all to guess what type of puppy we were getting-here is the answer. The little male on the left side, with his paw up, is hopefully coming home with us tomorrow. He is a Bichon; I know, I had been seriously looking at Poodles and Cavachon's but I connected with a breeder and this seemed like a good fit. Our daughter has a Bichon-poo and so I am pretty familiar with the breed. The temperament for these fluff balls is sweet and very social; they get along with other dogs and children. Having nine grandchildren, of various ages, around on a regular basis means we need a dog that loves children and won't knock them over. In the past, many of our dogs were not socialized properly and either had dog issues or kid issues, so I'm hoping this little guy will make life easier in this area. He is four months old, that is his father next to him. While I have already adopted him, in my heart, until he is in the car with us and on the way home, I realize we could walk away if something seems wrong. I also know our daughter's dog Lily will probably be over alot more because Bichon's love company.
My hubby is so happy to be getting a dog that doesn't shed and is so happy.
Go enjoy your day today; remember life is good. Noreen
