It’s been a debate for the last couple of years… to add or not to add a puppy to our family. Well, finally (about 1 month ago) we decided to start looking for puppies & see if we would find one that would be the perfect match to our family. I knew that due to my allergies, I would need a non-shedding dog, and we knew that we would need a little dog because we live in a town home…. so the search began! Growing up I had a Bichon Frise puppy, and although she was known for running off, she had a certain gumption that made her so endearing, so looking for another Bichon became a big factor for me. I looked through the internet ads & finally found a litter of little Bichon/Maltese puppies. The night before we were set to pick her up I realized that we didn’t have a name for our new puppy…. so I asked the girls to come up with names. First Kate told me she wanted to name her Sparkles (a name that she has been fond of for quite some time), then Audrey came up with the name Margaret (insert my puzzled look regarding that one). However, neither of those names were going to work (seriously, Margaret!)… the morning arrived & we had come up with 2 names Siri & Daisy… Mark, Kate & I had all agreed that we liked both of the names, but Audrey hadn’t decided & became the final vote…. ultimately she went with Daisy (which is a perfect fit since my brother’s dog is named Lily)!
So here she is at 9-weeks old…. our little Daisy!
It’s been less than a week with Daisy at home & we are just in LOVE…. now if we could only get her to sleep during the night!?
