The Story of Chaos…

Ever since we got to our new apartment, my partner, Gayl, has been bugging me to get another dog so our princess, Angel, would not be left all alone at home while we are at wok. She’s actually such a good dog and is used to being home alone without any surprises when we get home.

Every week she would bug me and sometimes I would think about it while searching for possible candidates. I had a lot of requirements before I would say yes;

  1. I’d rather we adopt a rescue, or rescue one from going to the pound
  2. I definitely want a small breed that’s low maintenance, meaning not much shedding or grooming (so another pomeranian is moved to the back of my list though Gayl wanted another Angel)
  3. I am partial to a full grown dog because we didn’t have the time to potty train a puppy, but only up to about 2-3 years old. We still want it to grow old with Angel
  4. Hypo allergenic, like a yorkie, shit-zu or maltese or any small poodle mix.
It isn’t a long list but most of the rescues that we see are big dogs. After months of looking, we gave up on the rescue and just walked into a pet store, forgetting my whole list, and made up our minds to just get a pet store puppy. We found this really cute all brown shit-zu and when we went to tell the store clerk we wanted her, they asked if we wanted to apply for in-house financing. We said yes, filled out the papers and gave all requirements to them while holding the precious puppy. It is then that fate stepped in. The clerk said there was something wrong with their financing department’s fax machine and might not be able to process my application until tomorrow. We said ok, handed them back the puppy, and left thinking that the puppy wasn’t meant for us.

The next day, I was again looking at the internet for dogs when this one particular dog stood out. A 2 year old long haired Chihuahua was being sold at a ridiculously low price. Problem is the owners are from Elie, Manitoba. To cut the long story short, we dared to go out of our comfort zone, traveled outside of Winnipeg, to see if this dog would like us and Angel (i believe that dogs choose their humans), and he was adorable! We fell in love with him immediately.

Now, more than a month later, we are completely smitten. He is just the sweetest little thing and he gets along good with Angel. We love him like we’ve had him all his life, and we just hope he loves us the same…
Now that we have him, don’t know what we’ll do without him.

    1. I’m not really sure 😛
      Only had him for a month and because he is small, we “think” he’s delicate. we try not to get to rough with him, afraid we’ll break him. But with our Angel, I wrestle with her on the bed and she absolutely loves it!
      i love labradors too. my family had one back home and she was such a character.

    1. Yes he is. I can’t believe how much we have fallen in love with him, even though he is a bit grumpy sometimes, which actually makes some of his excitement and funny moments more precious.
