Sooo....Everything happens for a reason!

O.k, Well, I didn't want to write this post because I feel like an ass! Moby didn't work out, he went back to his fosters after we had him nearly 2 months. He was just waaay to unpredictable, he snapped at John and he acted very nervous whenever Shaylee would approch him. We decided it's best for him and us if he didn't stay. He's been gone for about 3 weeks. We've been looking for a puppy, We still really wanted a dog. We wanted something to grow with Shaylee. Well, a few days ago we went for groceries and on our way home we went to the SPCA on a whim. We asked if they had any puppies....The woman at the counter said "no" but we decided to look anyway. We found the sweetest little puppy, with the sweetest brown eyes! We asked about her and she wasn't yet available because she had just come in and didn't have her shots. We put an application in on her and told us they would call when they looked our paper over. Today I finally couldn't take anymore and I called them, they told me I needed to bring a collar and leash and they closed at 7:00. So Shaylee and I rushed up to get her. She is such a sweetie, she is playful yet calm. She dosn't make much noise and she loves to give kisses. She is perfect for us, She's a terrier mix so she won't get very much bigger than she is now. Her name is Piper and we think she's pretty cool.....she already knows how to sit, shake and laydown!! We usually have to learn the hard way....but in the end we always get perfection!!

It's really hard with an older dog, we had to get rid of ours right before Joey was born. He snapped at me and was unpredictable too. But that puppy is too cute! Keep us updated! Good luck!

OH, LOOK at her. What a doll pup. We too got rid of our dog after Elliot came. He was a barker and so very aggressive. Daushunds are just not a good breed for small kiddos. Nora is still heart broken, but we'll replace him someday. He resides at a relative's home, so we do visit on occasion. Best of luck with your new pup!

This little Piper looks like she really wants to please! And is ready for anything! So sorry the other didn't work out, but you were right to find just the perfect dog for your sweet family!

oh my goodness, she is just too cute! We also had an older dog and she didn't get to stay. It was awful but she was really not comfortable around the kids. She went to live with a retired couple and she is in heaven now!! It all works out for the best.
