I can’t resist a little puppy face. A couple of years ago, a local dog rescue had a tiny little puppy up for adoption. His name was Jacob, and he was just a little ball of fur; part Australian Shepherd, and part Shitzu. From the day we were able to bring him home, he has been a joy. His name is now Brisco.
He is a very a smart dog. He learned all the sit, say please, give kisses and other commands. He has also found his own spot in our bed.
A few months ago someone advertised a chocolate lab puppy, and I fell in love with that sweet 2 month old face. I named this little girl Dixie. I thought that since we were now living in the country, she would be a great addition to the family which was comprised of me, my husband, Brisco, and old Sam, the large black cat.
In the 4 months since we have had her, I have lost four pair of shoes, one pair of slippers, numerous magazines, ruined books, (one of them being a rented textbook, which cost me $200 to replace), four potted plants and a garden hose. And let’s not forget the antique furniture with legs now needing restored.
But, when the scoldings are done, she gives you the puppy dog eyes and I am back in love again. We wake to faces wet with kisses every morning, and have learned we can’t sleep late anymore.
Does that make you want a puppy? If it does, make your way to the Warsaw Community Library and check out some of the numerous books we have on puppies. Books range in topics from how to take care of them, what they need, and maybe the one I should have checked out: How To Choose Your Next Puppy.”
You won’t regret the love of a puppy. Just hide everything you own.
