My point is, I wanted a puppy. I searched and waited, knowing (sort of) what I wanted. So when I saw a listing from a border collie breeder whose stud had a "mishap" with her Husky, I knew one of those little mutts was going to be mine.
My plan of
Eventually, she stopped being a selfish, puppy hogging Mother and pooped those pups out. Since the breeder lives four hours away, she sent photos and I picked out baby Milo right away. Then waited another excruciating 8 weeks.
The day I finally met him to bring him home, I was downright ecstatic.
|He snuggled right in and has been my little cuddle monkey every day since.|
|Must. Not. Squish.|
|Kitten was considerably less ecstatic and more than a little suspicious.|
Since Erik grudgingly "allowed" me (really, like he ever had a choice) to have Milo, I was a little apprehensive about how they would get along. Especially since Erik works from home and would be with him all day.
Probably the most negligible worry I've ever had in my life.
|Let's be real. His heart was doomed from the start.|
|Resistance is futile people. FUTILE!|
Second side note: The woman we bought Milo from is absolutely amazing. She loves her animals like they're her babies and had Milo basically potty trained when we got him. We had a total of 3 puppy pees inside. That's IT. And luckily we had that fabulous carpet to soak up all it's glorious, ammonia filled splendor. Went along perfectly with the corpse juice stains that have been there since Erik bought the place. SO, if anyone is ever in need of obtaining one of the best puppies in the entire world, I know a gal!
I was so excited before getting Milo I was telling everyone. Sadly, not everyone shared my enthusiasm and a few tried to talk me out of it. Remember E1? He was one of the most adamant naysayers. So much so, that he actually had me in tears. But oh yeah, I'm stubborn, a ginger, and I do what I want!
I played sand volleyball again this fall on the same team as E1. I brought Milo along so everyone could have the privilege of being chewed on by the best puppy in existence. E1 met Milo.
|E1 adopted Milo's sister, Stella.|
|Seriously people. I'm telling you. Resistance is futile.|
