The Life of Bon: WE'VE LOST OUR MINDS... also known as AS WE GOT A PUPPY!

WE'VE LOST OUR MINDS... also known as AS WE GOT A PUPPY!

How it happened that I started this day puppy-less and ended this day puppy-ful is beyond me.  I am quite certain it has to do with my hopeless non-ability to say no to Greg when he wants something bad.

And he wanted a puppy bad.

For the longest time it's just been the two of us.  Me and Greg, Greg and me. Today he finally convinced me that it is getting boring with just the two of us.  And then there were three.

And now, adorable pictures.  Meet our puppy.








He's a poodle because it is absolutely the only type of dog I would agree to. Poodles are small, playful, and most importantly, they don't shed.  Oh, and their farts seem to be pretty mild which is always a plus when you are puppy shopping, believe you me!

This little guy is still nameless.  Tomorrow I'll give you all the deets on how in a matter of seconds Greg and I had gone and committed ourselves to years of endless responsibility with a dog.

We're crazy, is basically all you need to know.

  1. STOP! My poodle looked just like that but she was a little bit smaller... color and all! She lived for 16 years! Congratulations!!! That's so fun!

  2. OMG he is absolutely adorable!! Good call on getting a shed-less dog, we have a German Shepherd and the shedding is awful and gets all over everything (especially black clothes)

    Can't wait to see more of him!

  5. he is such a little cutie pie and greg looks about 8 years old in his excitement!! also little puppy there looks like he doesn't quite know what he got himself into. this is just making me want a puppy even more. also, you should consider naming him pumpkin because of his color (or latte in honor of pumpkin spice lattes if that is your thing ;) love him already and i can't wait to hear more details!!

  11. We lived in a pet-free zone, self-imposed, until we moved halfway across the country and I caved into my children because they were miserable. It was the best thing I ever did. Our dog is everything to me now., they touch your hearts in ways you would not think possible. Your puppy is precious! Enjoy him,

  19. Bonnie, I kid you not this is how my mom got a puppy. I lived with her for 19 years...PUPPY-LESS. I moved out and New Years Day 2011 she woke and said to my Dad "I want a puppy". Two hours later, they had one. She says for the first three weeks she woke up every day and said "maybe I will bring her back today". But it all worked out! We LOVE HER!

  20. Welcome to the strange world of being a doggy mama! I love it, even though it's very stressful at times. Dogs are the best and it's so fun to watch them grow and learn. Kind of like kids...except cuter. ;)

  38. He's so precious! Congrats on your new addition! I truly, with my whole heart, hope you adopted him, and if so, please share the Rescue group here so your followers will check them out! You have such a big, awesome following, and can make a huge difference to the millions of dogs trapped in puppy mills (which supply puppy stores) and the 10,000 needlessly killed each day in shelters across the country.

  40. So cute!! I have a 6 month old toy poodle/havanese (havapoo) and I love that he has poodle in him, because they are so stinking smart! Last month we taught him to ring a bell when he wants to go outside. Lots of treats and lots of love go a long way!!

  56. Awww.. Congrats to the New Mommy & Daddy! As a self proclaimed animal know it all (and I've worked in animal hospitals, barns, pet shops, and groomers).. I would suggest that once you get this little precious a name, take it to a groomer and get it's eyes clipped. That will prevent the hair from causing any damage to it's eyes (which can be bad) and also it will start early with teaching your baby how to handle grooming, which it will need for the rest of it's life and make it less traumatic in the times to come-- the earlier you start the better!!
