I’ve never been much of a fan of dogs. I’m actually somewhat terrified of them. Ever since I was around 7 I’ve been afraid of them. My grandmother had a black dog, not actually sure what kind but it was a medium size dog and I remember it backed me into a corner one time and was growling and never actually bit me but was definitely threatening me and since then I’ve been afraid of being attacked by a dog.
My husband on the other hand has been wanting a dog for years! I kept telling him when we get a fence maybe we could. My daughter just loves dogs though and has been asking for a puppy for a couple months now. She is close to 2 and when I’d say “No” she would throw herself on the floor and throw a tantrum!
My family and I went to an Easter egg hunt today and afterwards we saw the Mobile Adoption unit and they had stray rescue dogs, so we went to look so the kids could see them. The first dog I saw I absolutely loved! He was so pretty! We looked at other dogs and I kept looking back at this dog. So my husband said lets get him. The more I looked I just felt like I had to have him!
Thirty minutes later and he was ours! I am so thrilled! He is so cute! He is a 2 year old Chihuahua. The previous owner had to get rid of him due to allergies and he was only in the shelter for a day. We are so happy to welcome him to our family. It is so odd for me as I never wanted a dog! It was love at first sight though!
We have named our little 7lb friend “Dragon”. He has taken quite well to my husband and loves to nap with him, which my husband enjoys doing as well!
