I'm in love!!! Isn't he the most precious thing? So the story is I've been wanting a puppy forever and I talked about it every damn day of my life for the past few years and I especially wanted a smaller dog and my dear friend Amanda said her dog was eventually gonna have puppies with her mom's dog and that happened sooner rather than later and Amanda's gift to me was one of the puppies and I knew this back in January when the mama dog was pregnant and I also knew that when I got a dog his name would be Samwise Gamgee and I was a little hesitant on the timing of all this but when the litter was born there was only one boy and I knew it was meant to be!
He's a Shorkie (Shitzu and Yorkie mix) and he's only 6 weeks old. I love him to pieces! At first I was totally freaked out. But I'm slowly learning how to raise a puppy. Amanda has been a big help. And he's still with his mama and the other puppies right now. I've already taken a billion pictures. Here's a handful.
Now I know what a lot of you are thinking. Puppies are a big responsibility, Natalie. Aren't you traveling? Do you have a place to live? What about a job? And the economy?!
Don't you fret. I've got a plan. And now I'm loving the timing of all this. How perfect that I should meet Samwise Gamgee during my travels.
" I made a promise, Mr Frodo. A promise. 'Don't you leave him, Samwise Gamgee.' And I don't mean to. I don't mean to." --Samwise Gamgee (the Hobbit, not the Shorkie :-)
