“Bella” is a 15 week old teacup Yorkie.
About a week ago I had an epiphany, really, in Mass last Sunday I had this voice that said we need to let the kids get a puppy. So began a crazy search for breeders and shelters and asking every friend we knew about puppies.
Our requirements were few. We wanted a small dog, a puppy we can train, and one not from a puppy mill.
Literally, Bella fell into our lap. It’s like that when it’s meant to be, a friend of a friend got a litter-mate of her new pup, and she found she couldn’t meet the demands of her puppy. My friend Jody told me she could get me this puppy, and that was a no strings attached puppy, and no cost.
We completely shocked and thrilled our kids. Jody brought Isabella to the HS soccer game Thursday night and after the game Caitie was all excited, like let me hold her etc etc and then Jody told her “Merry Christmas”……….Caitie cried she was so happy!!! The other two were thrilled when we got home and surprised them too.
Bella is tiny and sweet, and for the most part she is learning all about being in our home. I fear she sleeps too much each day and will cry or bark at night but it hasn’t been awful yet. She uses little wee wee pads(literally that is the name) in the house and goes outside to potty too. She is young……….so we are ok with her current progress.
Many more new puppy stories to come I’m sure!!!
