We've been musing about getting a puppy for years now...probably ever since somewhere in the second year or so of our relationship when we both somehow realized that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. I've researched every breed that one could imagine and had my heart set, and then re-set, on quite a few of them. Malteses are too small, pugs get hot too easily, bulldogs are too drool-y and so on. All the while, we have known that some day, in the mythical future where we own a home with a backyard, we can get a lab. But I digress.
In the last year or two, we settled on the perfect breed. The one that we always saw on the street and coo'ed over because the look like they could be little labs, but were the perfect size for an apartment. Yes, we fell in love with the puggles.
And now, with only four months left on our dog-hating apartment lease, we've begun to search for a new pet friendly home. And after much research, we've chosen a breeder and set up a time to meet with them on an upcoming vacation! Our dreams are becoming a reality, and we could be the mama and daddy to a new puppy in less than six months! I couldn't be more excited.
All of this brings me to the title of this blog. The already chosen name of our little girl. The dog that we talk about like she already exsists, and like she is our child. And so I will wait for the next six months and prepare for our Penny and the first little expansion of our wonderful new family. Pin It
