Arrival Story: I was never allowed a dog growing up, and I was just at a point in my life where I could adequately take care of a dog, not to mention I/we needed some furry little fun and love in our lives.
I knew a small-breed dog was the way to go, as our house is small and our yard is not that big, so I did some research to determine 'which' small-breed dog would work best with us. But, with the old man to consider, I needed to look for a more sturdy type dog, and one that would not bark a lot. So a bichon or tzu seemed like a good choice.
While at times taking care of a dog from babyhood to adulthood and beyond IS a quite challenge, the lessons HE has taught ME far outweigh any troubles or adjustments that came along with having a dog. He truly has been a blessing to us. We cannot imagine our lives without the little guy.
