Zach and the kids have been wanting a dog for quite some time. I am so anti-pet! I'm the one home all day with 4 kiddos to care for and a house to keep up! Well, I saw an ad in our local paper for some Maltese puppies and fell in love! So I showed it to Zach and he was all for it. We didn't' even tell the kids, just said we had a surprise. We drove to the place where the pups are and they saw them and that's when we finally said we're getting a puppy! We picked out this cute little girl and we're going to call her Daisy. She should come home in about two weeks when she no longer needs her mama. They're so cute, like little stuffed animals! I'm not at all looking forward to potty training and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do it (she's too small to take out in the cold) so if any of you have any advice... The kids are thrilled. I think a pet will be good for them. They do have the hamster, but he's pretty much cage-bound (much to my delight)! I look forward to bringing Daisy home and to the many years she will be a part of our family!
