A Warm Puppy

10 Mar

Considering the title of this blog it will be extremely difficult to keep it from becoming soppy and/or insipid.  I will do my best, but no promises.rocky

Just about one and a half years ago we realized it was time to let our beautiful, golden Pomeranian, Teddy, go to sleep for the final time.  He had given us eighteen years of joy and it was a difficult decision.

Jim and I determined that we would not bring another pet into our home.  We were now free to leave the house at a moment’s notice.  We could vacation and do it impulsively without finding someone to puppy sit.  So we purchased a new carpet (Teddy’s last year had done it some damage) and we settled into our new lifestyle.

Things went along fairly well for over a year and then we began to notice we were coveting other people’s pets.  We checked out all the dogs and cats on Facebook and didn’t fast forward through any television commercial featuring a puppy or adult dog.  The realization hit us like a banana cream pie smack in the face, we wanted a new puppy.

Teddy was perfect for us therefore we didn’t want another pom.  It would be unfair to the pup always being compared to our long-term companion.  But we did want small and small is what we got.  An adorable black and white ten week old chihuahua.

Rocky is now four months old.  We arranged our life around him, getting up early everyday to play with him and watch his antics.  He is fun and affectionate.  The grandkids love him to death.  Yes, the one year old carpet has been christened a few times, but take it from me, carpeting cannot compare to a warm puppy.
