We have a new puppy!
And YES, I AM CRAZY!
It just sort of happened...
There was an auction of Cavaliers
that I heard about through a Cavalier site
that I follow on Instagram
(mostly for the adorable pictures).
They had shut down a Puppy Mill
and they were going to auction off 100 dogs
that the puppy mill had at their puppy farm.
The auction was only a few hours away
in Missouri so Miss Beaux and I talked Mr. Beaux
into going on Saturday.
Well as it happened,
we didn't end up getting a puppy at the auction...
A rescue organization
had raised over $150,000 to buy the puppies.
They bought 97 of them at a minimum of $3600 each!
That was too expensive for me!
But I guess we were supporting them
in a way by being there.
At least they won't go to another puppy mill
to be over bred.
So, we stopped at the pet store
just to look at the puppies
and when we walked in
there was Little Jasper
in the window with a sale sticker.
The story is that he was returned
by the family because the mother has Alzheimer's.
They wanted to sell him quickly
because he is 23 weeks old
and younger puppies sell much better.
So we snatched him up and brought him home!
He is crate trained and almost potty trained.
He is very sweet and loving but active too!
We feel like we performed
our own little rescue
by taking him home!
Of course I know that our house is for sale
and it probably is not the best time
to get a new puppy.
But it's like having kids...
Is there ever a perfect time?
All of the snuggles and puppy kisses
are certainly worth the extra effort!
Until Next Time,
