There are some days that my dogs bring me so much happiness. I thought since I tend to slip them into photos, I would give them a proper introduction.
(Named after Buster Bluth)
Buster is a pomchi (from what I understand). He’s pomeranian and chihuahua. We rescued him in 2007 and he has been my little angel ever since. Everyone tends to fall in love with him petty quickly, even people who don’t like little dogs. He is very loving and sweet and will always jump at the opportunity for a photo opp.
(Named after Lucille Bluth)
Lucille was a recent rescue. We picked her up in April of this year after making a quick decision that Buster needed a friend. She is very full of life and will play with almost any toy you throw her way. She’s learning to adjust and has been teaching us patience.
So those are my little ones for right now. They are a big part of my life, and always bring a smile to my face when I get home.
This is a very special edition of Window Shop Wednesday. Yesterday I visited ModCloth and saw this extremely adorable sweater by Brat & Suzie and could not believe how much it looks like my dog. Buster is a pomchi most likely (chihuahua and pomeranian), but this Papillon Sweater is his twin. I am trying to determine if I need it, and I am leaning towards…yes.
update: On Brat & Suzie they say it’s a chihuahia. I win!
What do you think? Twins?
Life is great right now. Summer is a season that is full of things to do. In this busy time, I have learned to love the nights that I spend alone at home because they are so few and far between.
Tonight after I came home work, I was able to walk the dogs, weed the garden, make dinner, and now I am working on some fun project while the Olympics play in the background. It’s pretty refreshing to have so many hours to myself at home. Buster and Lucille have been by my side all night showing me that they are happy I am here.
There’s a reason I moved into this place…I like it!
For the last few years, Bryan and I have thrown around the idea of getting a second dog. This is a serious decision.
Right now we have one of the best dogs in the world. We rescued Buster from a pound in Salt Lake City when he was around a year old. From the beginning, he was a relatively easy dog. We only had to deal with growing pains, accidents and the occasional chewing for the first few months. He is the ideal dog for two busy people. He sleeps all day, and is active when I need him to be. Full of love, he is always at our side ready to cuddle.
The one thing that really changed with him was his interactions with other dogs. When we first took him to a dog park he loved it. He ran around and tried to play with the big dogs. Now (and I am afraid because of his lack of socializing), he stays by our side constantly, and snaps occasionally at other dogs. I’m wondering if giving him a best friend will be the right move.
I thought I would list out the pros and cons and see if anyone had any thoughts.
- Buster gets a friend
- Hopefully Buster learns to socialize
- Bryan and I get a new baby
- More fun for us
- Could be blessed with another dream dog
- Save a dog’s life
- Could rescue a nightmare dog
- More vet, food costs
- Harder to find dog watchers
(However, I assume now I would just need to get housesitters)
So there it is. I know if we rescued another dog, I would look for that “Buster-friend.” This means another small cuddly sleepy pup.
