Awwww...cookie is so sweet! She almost has the face of a beagle. You will have a wonderful time with her.
I, for one, cannot live without a dog. I have a dog and two cats right now. My dog is wonderful and helps with the fibro. I walk her every day and that gets me moving. She makes me feel very guilty if I don't walk her. Even if I hurt when I leave the house, I'm feeling much better when I get home. I look all around when walking her and take in the beauty that God has provided and it lifts my spirits, too.
A dog gives you a reason to get up and get moving. You have to feed them and then the walking I just mentioned gets the blood flowing again. Plus it is fun playing with them. These things are a small price to pay for the love and the joy these little critters give back. cookie will come around soon. She is probably confused and frightened but will get comfy very soon and have all of you wrapped around her little paw! Enjoy your dog!
Marlee, in my opinion, there is NOTHING in the world better than puppy kisses!! that puppy breath! I can still smell it and I have no puppies around here! I was not aware of the loss of your grandson and your Bichon. I'm so very, very sorry to hear of both losses. My grandsons are very young, the oldest is 6. I cannot begin to imagine losing them.
Marlee, I think getting Krissy was the perfect thing to do to mend your heart. Dogs are pure love. I have three dogs and a cat, I've had other cats before, but for me, it's the love of a dog. Even though I adore my cat, she's aloof, as a cat should be. I'm just too needy ...I need my dogs big old head on my lap. I also need to know that they need me, to get up in the morning to feed them, and to walk them. They are what motivate me to walk every day.
Marlee, again, my heart goes out to you, for your tremendous losses. I know the love a Bichon can give to you and I am sure that Krissy will mend your broken heart, fill it, and overflow it with tender love and puppy kisses!!! Enjoy every second of her!

Hi liberty- I don't think I have welcomed you, so Welcome!
A-w-w-w your puppy sounds adorable. I am a animal lover but came down with allergies to them. It broke my heart but have been able to have small animals without reacting to them. Hamsters, and 2 parakeets over the years. I also have a yellow lab granddog that is just like my own. Have to take anti-histamines when I am around him but he is so worth it.
Good luck with your new addition to the family!
