Post "I'm Getting a Puppy"...A Process and A Half!

Go back 10 months:
I spent the first year of living with my boyfriend explaining how badly we NEEDED a puppy, NOT wanted, NEEDED! When that didn't get anywhere I explained how badly I REALLY REALLY wanted one; therefore it was most certainly a NEED! After that failed, I explained how I have never once in my life not had a dog/furry baby in my life and that it was breaking my heart not to...again, failure. I gave up hope and stopped asking.

Fast Forward to Valentines:
As I'm laying in bed next to him that night, I thank him for my flowers and candy and very sweet card. I roll over to look at him and he smiles and says "I'm glad, I almost got you a dog; but I didn't".
We'll skip through the silly pillow fight and tickling to me telling him quite seriously "That's fine, I had given up, but now IT'S ON!"

*Side note; my boyfriend and I are litterally childhood sweethearts, we have been in each other's lives since we were four and five. He once informed my mom who yelled at him that he was "going to marry her daughter just to make her mad when he grew up and get back at her for being so mean". Due to our very long and silly history almost all of our fights or debates turn into pillow fights...naturally because he's the one who taught me how to pillow fight.

Skip to last month:
I called my aunt who is a vet tech and asked her to keep an eye out for a small puppy or young dog for me. She called me three days later to tell me of a woman she had just seen at the office. After the phone call I immediately called my boyfriend to tell him we were getting an AKC registered Yorkie that was 10 weeks old for free and I would be picking him up in a week. My shopping spree had begun; food, toys, soap, puppy pads, colar, leash, crate, bed, you name it I had it.

Jump to 1 DAY before I was due to pick up Khaos:(Yes I had him names already)...I got a call from my aunt who informed me that my puppy had died in his sleep the night before and had tested positive for a liver shunt. My world crumbled. I had already put pics of my puppy on FaceBook and MySpace, told everyone under the sun and had been visiting this puppy EVERYDAY after work and school. I was so attached I felt like my other baby was gone. My son was so upset, "Momma when pup-pup come home?" is all I heard for days.
*Even the boyfriend was upset.

Hop, Skip, Jump to...April 12, 2010
My aunt calls me at work to tell me I have to get off a half hour ealry; I didn't question it because she was watching my son, I assumed something was wrong and left. I get there and I'm hustled right back into the car and given directions. I follow her suggestions...(ok orders) and arrive ten minutes away from her house that seems miles away from anything to a small home with a single car in front of it. I am told that I have to see something. I walk up to the door and knock and the nicest woman I know opens the door; she's my grandma's best friend...who happens to breed chihuahua's. She then tells me that she has about 10 puppies from various litters that I must see. In starts my babbling about not being able to afford her babies (super sweet, AKC, and way out of a college kid/mom's price range). I am then cut off and reminded about how my grandmother has done everything amazing and wonderful for her and that this will be a joint birthday gift from them (poor excuse cuz my birthday is not until the end of June), really they just love me to death I suppose; I'm a lucky girl. So I then plop down on her couch to be brought more babies than I can take in at once until one little fluff ball runs over to attack my shoelace. Immediate "Omg I want him!" They insisted I see them all to be sure but in the end Pepito was the one. He has a double coat and I was so close to being crushed that I couldn't take him home right away (He's only 4 weeks). So after three hours of playing and bonding I went home. I never even told my boyfriend Jimmy where I had gone, just said I was "browsing" with my aunt. I got home and handed him a reciept for our new baby. I was shocked he smiled and was very pleased. He had already KNOWN!

So here I sit, writing about this because I'm more excited than I thought I would be about any puppy and waiting til May 20th so I can bring home my baby!

I'm so in love its not funny, he's the cutest thing with four feet Everytime Im out I stop to buy toys or something, I just can not wait to have him at home. The wait stinks but it works out perfectly because my semester will have just ended in time for me to spend three weeks puppy proofing and setting up And then I'll have a 3 month break from classes with him and my hunny and son <3
